I’m starting Chemo on Wednesday June 23rd. I have to do 4 treatments 3 weeks apart so I should be done by end of August. Then a short break before radiation 21 treatments which should be done by the 1st of October.

Oh my!  You will be a bit busy.  I do hope they give you a bit of rest time in between the treatments.  Praying you through.

My surgery is this Wednesday so be sure to say a prayer for me. 

Got you covered!

I spend most of my days in front of my computer with a credit card shopping on Amazon.  I think I’m turning into a shopaholic.

Do let us know what all you've found!!

I couldn't get the reply window to respond to "all" but this message is for all of you who are facing upcoming surgeries or treatments.  Just wanted to let you know that you will all be in my thoughts and prayers.  I pray for the skill of your doctors and caretakers and the return to your comfort and health.

I want to thank those of you that sent cards, it brightens my day. 

I didn’t send a card. Never even entered my head. ::sigh::  I did send medical supplies though! Does that count?

It certainly does.  You have been a tremendous long distant helper.  The medical supplies you sent are so much better than what I can get at a drug store.  That pressure sore is almost completely healed up.

  I'm not sure I like the utter randomness of the 1600" Jelly Roll Race quilt pattern

I haven’t ever been a huge fan of jelly roll race quilts, but yesterday I saw one I loved. I’m so mad at myself for not taking a picture. 
It was a traditional pattern, but the quilting made it fantastic. All they did was turn it so the strips were vertical and then quilted straight lines across in sets of two. Two lines about half an inch apart and then the next set about 1.5 inches from the first. Changed the whole look and made it look modern and really great. 
 

Maybe this is common, but I’ve always seen them with the strips horizontal and usually an edge to edge something. Fine, but not a wow piece ya know?  Somehow turning it made it a wow piece for me. 
 

I don’t have automatic channel locks so when I decide I want to get my steps in, I’ll give this one a shot

I’m sorry you have to go through this, but thankful for the science that makes it possible. Thought and hugs to you. Know we are keeping you close in our hearts.

we have to have it super clean since I will not have any immune system

You obviously just need to throw a cleaning product in with every order. Online shopping is good for the soul!

Glad to hear things are headed in the right direction. Been thinking of you often. Hang in there!
