It is much cooler here today along with a bit of rain. We really needed both the temperature break and the rain. The view from my window (in front of my computer) is lush and green. No sunshine but still almost perfect.

Jesse came to play with me yesterday and James will be here tomorrow. It's the highlight of my week to have the boys here. Since I've been a bit under the weather I'm home most of the time. The boys keep me up to date their progress in both swimming and music. We watch Netflix On Demand movies and play Noggin games. I've been reintroduced to Scooby-Do, Batman, Looney Tunes, Bugs Bunny, and Transformers (kids versions) just to name a few.

Harry is a busy, busy fellow these days. He waits on me hand and foot. I can't tell you how much it means to me that he and the children are so supportive. I've also been contacted by long time friends that I haven't heard from in years. Blessings are delivered in unexpected ways. I'm thankful for everything and everyone.

My appointment with my surgeon went well yesterday. The new margins are clear. Next step is a visit to my medical oncologist (tomorrow) and another to the radiation oncologist (23 July). One thing is for sure and certain - I've been scrutinized, examined, and probed. I have to say that I'm pleased with my medical team - I just never knew it include so many medical experts.

Well, folks, I believe it's time to watch the reefs for awhile. They are always moving and I can spend time just enjoying the coming and going of the reef critters.

My best to all along with thanks for your concern and prayers.

I'm so glad everything is looking good. Get plenty of for the body AND rest for the mind. Grandkids are a pure delight, aren't they? An absolute joy, their innocence so refreshing and so healing in times like these. God Bless and keep smiling, Mary. Hugs!

I'm so glad the margins are clear. Hopefully you'll never be poked and probed and invaded like that again! Good-bye cancer. Maybe radiation? I'm so glad you have Harry's support and that of your friends and family. And that the little ones give you such joy. You deserve it. Be a princess and let others pamper you. Rest up. Be happy.

So glad for the better report! You have been in my thoughts and prayers. I've been here every day to check for an update. Harry is certainly a keeper. What a blessing to have him to care for you, but to love you as well.
