    Love all of your houses, JavaZarf! When I saw the first one, I thought "that's my favorite" but then I saw the 2nd and thought "that's my favorite" but then I saw the 3rd and thought .... you get the picture -- they are ALL my favorite!

    I have to say the House #5 is my favorite. It has my favorite number 5, a bird, a sunflower and the advice to be happy, What more could a person want beside a cup of coffee, and a kitten?

    That turtle house is also a joyful piece of art. Very good use of the frame with the turtle inside.


    Thanks for fighting the good fight JavaZarf even though

    "I kept at it today even though my glue globbed, glue stick was chunky and I kept dropping anything I was cutting." I have had art days like this.

    I may or may not be getting Chemo Monday. My blood tests came back low. They will retest Monday. If they are still low then it is a NO GO. But JavaZarf is my swap host buddy. She knows my phone number, address, email. Etc. If you need something and dont hear from me, she is your GO to Gal.

    If I get chemo, I might not feel so great. Who knows, this would be #3 of this new chemo. Rounds 1 and 2 were not easy, but I have experienced that it gets easier each round.

    Hope you're blood count goes up, CQ5, as you're probably anxious to get on with Round 3. Sending healing thoughts your way!

    My chemo was a NO GO!. My blood level was too low.

    But in good news, the cancer test called a CA125 came out 21, which is below the needed 35. One more low test like that, and I am closer to being labeled in remission.

    I report next Monday for more blood tests, which I do every week anyway. If things look better, I will get chemo, but they are going to lower my dose to prevent the bad blood tests.

    Great NEWS!

    i was a slacker today and not watching this swap
    spent the morning at the dr with my son who is having eye surgery next month
    they have to do a boat load of tests and paperwork is exhausting
    my other excuse is i spent the afternoon at work
    but that was too hard
    so i am leaving early
    i will try to be a better swap host buddy next time

    I did go to my oncology office today,

    I AM HOME, no chemo today, my blood levels were too low. One went up to an acceptable level but one dropped even lower.



    Hey in good news that CA 125 Test came back 21, so under the nec. 35 level.



    It was confirmed that I will need more chemo ever OTHER week, and at a lower dose. Then a Cat scan to determine if they can label me "In Remission". ANd yes, a year of maintenance chemo since this is a pretty aggresive cancer that tends to return in 6 months time. Plus it had already traveled to other organs, but not my lymph nodes and not my bone marrow.
