Baseball Spring Training

It has been a while since my last blog post.  That is because we have been in Phoenix at Major League Baseball Spring Training...woohoo!!  We try to make this trip every March.

BFF and me
We met my best friend and her husband there.  She is a Chicago Cubs fan and as you can tell I am a Texas Rangers fan.

BFF and her hubby

My best friends husband is a huge Cincinnati Reds fan.  The Cubs were playing the Reds at Hohokam and the Cubs won.  She was so happy.  Can you tell my BFF is wearing her Cub hat? And it was hot.  She wore it the entire game.

At one of the games they were selling helmet nachos. 

These nachos had layers of chips, chili, more chips, cheese, sour cream, salsa and jalapenos.  We did share the nachos and still couldn't eat them all. 

And here is the helmet after we were finished.  Luckily it was lined with paper that kept it clean. 

Just a few pictures of my Texas Rangers, plus I threw in one picture of Albert Pujols(in red) who now plays for the Angels.  These guys are like movie stars to me. 

Just a quick health update.  I had my chemotherapy port removed yesterday.  It was a simple surgery.  The doctor made a small incision near my left shoulder, removed the port and I have 3 stitches.  It has never hurt so no big deal.

Today I started my 6 1/2 weeks of radiation, that is 33 treatments.  It literally took only 5-7 minutes and it was finished.  This should be easy peasy compared to chemo. 

I am feeling good.  Spring sprung while we were away so it is time to get out in the yard. 

Until next time,

So glad to see your post and to hear about your port being removed! Looks like you had a wonderful time in Phoenix! We feel almost like drowned rats...the sunshine was beautiful for a few hours...Tim did get the yard mowed..our fescue is growing like corn!!
Hope you are enjoying our spring weather!

I am so happy to hear that you are doing so well. Good to hear that the radiation is easier than the chemo. I am very happy for you.
I have never even watched a game of baseball!!! It is a very American game so far as I can see. Take care and look after yourself. Diane
