Get Well Cards and Garden

Today I am a little sad.  I found out Wednesday that I will have to take radiation.  It will be starting in the next 2 weeks.

The bone scan is next Monday and it along with another test will determine if I need chemotherapy. 
Todays headline in our local newspaper, The Oklahoman, says "Chemo drug shortage stirs fears for cancer patients".  Let's hope I don't need the chemo since it sounds like the drug is in short supply. 

Look at all of the get well cards I have received.  Simply looking at these cards lifts my spirits and snaps me out of my pity party.  Thank you everyone for the cards and well wishes.

Today I was feeling well enough to walk out on my back yard deck and take a few pictures of the garden.  Woohoo!!  It feels good to do something that is part of my "normal" life. 

I took these pictures at mid-afternoon, temperature was 102 degrees, bright and sun shiny.  The picture quality is rather poor but you can tell that my automatic drip irrigation system is doing it's job.  My plants are surviving just fine without my assistance. 

The potato vine LOVES the heat and is taking over the yard!! 

The castor beans are a beautiful color and they too love the heat.  This one is a little droopy during the heat of the day but it will look much better during the evening hours.

That's all for now.  Until next time,

I wish you didn't have to have radiation and I'm still praying that chemo will not be necessary! Thinking of you!!
