I am continuing with a Valentine flower thought...

Health Update: I am thrilled to report I am feeling OK.  I had one day of fatigue and brain fog and that's it.  I rode outside 1x and inside on rollers 2x and took a 1.5 mile walk.  I am doing my exercises, eating small meals often, drinking my 64oz of water and gargling with awful stuff 4x a day.  I am also using plastic (silver) ware to eat with, someone told me it helps with the metallic taste.  So maybe I am heading off some issues but feeling very grateful. 

I want to give a HUGE thank you to all the food and gifts pouring in.  With some extra duties falling on Linda it is nice she has not had to cook.  Our fridge looks like a smorgasbord and I am grazing my way through it!  Nothing is going to waste.  So THANK YOU all.  I have also received some treasured gifts.

This BEAUTIFUL hand painted box is from Sarah Gilligan.

A hand made copper tree from Joel Hutchinson.
His work is in Lititz Purple Robin.

A jar of uplifting sayings from Tracee & Ruth.

Plus books, blankets, another port shirt and some wild dinosaur socks!
I am so blessed, THANK YOU all.

This snowman is from our snowstorm  January 1/25.  Thank you to the Flowers family for the use of their snowman, the kids did a great job considering there was not that much snow!  I love that everything is a little off center.   I did change the background!

Health Update:  Wednesday was my IV disconnect day.  I am currently free of tubes! I have the OK to ride my bike as long as I am not around people!  I am so incredibly blessed, so far I have had no side effects other than a little tired but I take a short nap!  Your hundreds of prayers are working...keep it up.

A beautiful bluebird is my last bird of the season.

These two birds were commissioned and are SOLD!

Health Update: I had a good night, slept well and a good day. I have been eating small amounts all day and drinking my 64oz of water. So far the worse thing is the mouth rinse I need to use (Seriously, baking soda and salt in 8 oz of water)  tastes awful, it better keep the mouth ulcers away!!    Its 6PM on Tuesday and so far I have had NO side effects.  My anti-nausea med in my IV is out of my system late tonight so things may change.  But I am ready for whatever comes my way.  Wednesday at 11am my IV is disconnected.   I am free until the 13th when I start all over.   I am allowed visitors however masks are required.  This is also the perfect time to say THANK YOU for all the meals and soups that are showing up.  Nothing is going to waste and it is giving Linda a cooking break.  It is nice to open the fridge to a variety of snacks and meals!  I am feeling the LOVE!

This is my last cardinal!  My plan is one more bird and that finished out a month of birds.

Health Update:

Here I am getting my 1st Chemotherapy treatment.  Sporting a new hat to keep my head warm.  A new "blankie" which is becoming my new best friend and a new "port" shirt, who knew these existed!  I then came home with a bag of more IV meds hooked to my port.  Sleeping should be interesting.  So far no issues.  I got home and painted an hour and then took a nap.  Waiting to see what my side effects will be is harder then everything so far.

I am starting the week off with a male cardinal.

In the Studio:  I am sad to report that I needed to back out of the Lititz Fire and Ice Show held in February.  It is unwise for me to be in an enclosed space with lots of people.  I plan to continue to paint as I feel up to it, I was told I can bring my paints to my chemotherapy infusion days.   Since I am not out at shows, remember you can still follow this blog for painting updates and make purchases on my website!  I am thanking you for your continued support!!

FYI:  The big January Blow Out Deal is almost over.  Scroll down to January 3 to see the 4 featured prints that are only $20 unframed or $90 framed.  Send an email with your order.

Health Update:  So much has happened since my health announcement on the 16th.  I have been blessed to be moved into the system at lightening speed.  In only 14 days I have met with my oncologist, a radiologist, and a surgeon, had bloodwork, had my chemotherapy education meeting, and  had mediport surgery. I now have a clear diagnosis.  Stage 3 Rectal Cancer.  I have a plan!  I am going to the  Ann B Barshinger Cancer Institute, which is a fantastic place to be, I am impressed how kind and professional everyone is.  Monday the 30th at 9:30am I have a wicked cocktail of meds (chemotherapy) into my port for 5 hours.  I also go home with more in a pump.  Wednesday I am disconnected!  Hopefully by Friday I will feel human again.  Then I get a week off and start all over  for several months.  Next will be radiation and then surgery.  I have a long haul!  The result will be "CURED"!
What I need from you is prayers, that I handle the Chemotherapy (don't get tooooo sick)  and that the tumor shrinks and I finish cured.  Remember to be patient with any orders!
