So much has happened this year and here we are only 16 days into the new year, I became ill 2 days before Xmas with Bronchitis and am still not completely well. Then my best friend Nina who I met when our boys were 7 years old and playing little leage and are now 49 years old has been hospitalized in Indiana and was discovered to have Guillame Barre and during all the testing to discover the guillame barre she was also found to have Mantle Cell Lymphoma a rare cancer and in stage 4. I spoke to her Saturday and she knows I have not been able to fly there because of my ears and then I could only go for a couple of weeks at the most because of my 3 yorkies. So she suggested that I drive to Illinois and bring my yorkies that way I could stay longer, so talking to all my children they all thought that was a good idea, so my son-in-law is going to go with me so I don't go alone because it's over 2000 miles from California to So. Illinois where she's at. I will be leaving soon to arrive in Illinois about the same time that she is released from St. Louis University Medical Center so I can be there when she gets home. I will be gone 2-4 months and maybe more. She starts chemo tomorrow and Wednesday and then will have chemo once a month for 2 days so I will be driving her to Chemo and to physical therapy for her Guillame Barre. It's amazing how priorites change in our lives and right now she is my biggest concern and there is nothing either one of us would not do for the other, we share the same birthday May 25 we are the first born child and the list goes on and on. We say the same thing about a certain subject even though she is more than 1/2 way across the United States from me. I will be continuing with TAST and doing my stitching from my friend's home, maybe I can get her interested in it.
