So, went to the surgeon and had the drain out. What a relief that was! So easy to take a shower now. Waiting to hear the verdict about the tumor oncotype, regarding the risk of recurrence. If it is low risk, I am told that I may not need the chemo, and will have only radiation. It the risk is moderate, then I will have both, and I think it will be chemo first, followed by radiation.
That is my story thus far.
In other news, my second prince Davis, Saadia’s son who is now a freshman in high school, went to the Homecoming dance with a sweet young lady from his class. We were all so surprised. He is a quiet and unassuming kid, who is not very vocal; he loves to do his own things, has few boys he hangs out with, going to movies, watching some TV, reading books and playing chess with them. So it was a real happy surprise to see him come out of his shell this year and make friends so easily and be talkative. I do believe it is the Senior High influence. Here are some pictures from his yonder years and those taken last month, at a park. There were only two boys, Davis and Caleb, (his best friend) who had dates. All the other girls, ten of them, went together as a group. Davis’s date has a twin brother, who was there alone. He is the one with the hat. The boys had a dinner at a restaurant with their dates , and all the girls met at someone’s home to have a dinner party. They invited only one boy to be with them…. Davis! So he went there and had appetizers with them while Saadia waited in the car, and then he went to the restaurant with his date and Caleb and his date. It was so complicated!! My head was spinning. Then after the dinner there the boys had their own party and finally went to the homecoming dance at the school! Phew!!!
Davis was such a cute, cuddly baby. Always after Noah, and they would come home and be in my study, and just make me smile the whole time. He loved his sippy cup, and you can see that on my desk. And now he is all grown up.
Here are some of my paintings which I did this year. I titled this, “did someone knock?”
Breakers and sea gulls .
Sheba, our cat.
Pensive. (Or should I title it WAITING)?
The rest of the paintings are just haphazard, without titles. I also have painted a lot of cards to send out to friends. The inside is blank.
I had done this painting on a larger scale and had entered it in a show. It was bought for $200. I did not want to sell, it and so had put a higher price tag on it. It got sold. So I painted it again at a smaller scale. 🙂
The above painting is a snow scape and has only gray and black pigment. Last night when I was trying to take photos, I thought I had got the shadows and reflections off, but I didn’t do justice to it in my opinion.
Okay enough of blowing my own trumpet. I have about a hundred more, and I really should take pictures and catalogue them before it is too late. Thank you for wanting to see my work. I know I am not at all a good artist, but I enjoy doing this so much. It has been very therapeutic for me.
Thank you for your love and the support you have given me during this tough time. Love you all so much. Blessings to each one of you.
