The past week is a blur, filled with what used to be our normal lives, on top of all the stuff that should NOT be part of them. Sahara is feeling better, and has been able to venture out of the house a couple of times. Her white blood cell count is rising, so that is a relief. Tomorrow we start the next leg of our journey, with outpatient chemo at St. Francis. She tolerated this chemo pretty well while we were in Houston, so we hope that will remain the case as she starts it all over again.
Sahara even got to enjoy a bit of Halloween, visiting her cousins on Halloween night, doing a bit of trick or treating at the Osage Center, and stopping by our dear friends, the Tegels. She was so glad to do something besides stay in the house! We were all wiped out from the trip back from Houston, but in typical Sahara fashion, she was determined to have some fun. We dressed her in some scrubs, a mask and a beanie, and she was Doctor Sahara for the evening. LOL.
I understand that tickets to the Rick show are selling really well, and we are looking forward to seeing many of you there! We are going to have such a great time.
I can't believe how fast time is flying by...Thanksgiving is right around the corner...yikes! And this coming weekend is our "Grease" extravaganza! We can't wait to see everyone and sing at the top of our lungs to those cool, cheesy songs. We just have to convince Shannon to go too...I have embarrassed him more than once by singing those songs. LOLOL.
Extra special thanks going out tonight to some wonderful people: Allycen Farnsworth, Amy Shelin Primorac, Renata Hearn, and Paul Belfi...you guys ROCK. Be sure to listen to Rick Radio for some special stuff coming up!!!
And as always, a continual, ongoing thanks to each and every one of you for your thoughts, prayers, gifts...you are all so special and we are grateful for all of you. :)
Here's hoping that you all have a great week, and that Sahara handles being back on chemo again in her strong, steady way.
