Tying Up Loose Ends Tuesday

flea market flowers

This is a busy week for mom.  She has a week full of appointments, four of them in fact.  This morning she is at an appointment at MD Anderson cancer hospital getting fitted for her radiation mask.  One of her golfing buddies is taking her.  The radiation therapist should be scheduling her sessions as well, so we can better plan the next few weeks.

This mask will keep her head stable during treatment.  It will
also help the radiation therapist direct the radiation to the proper area.  Luckily she is not claustrophobic.  I don't know if I could do it, this mask kinda freaks me out.  We have three other appointments this week, her primary physician, her neurosurgeon, and then her annual mammo,dexascan and chest xray.  

Tomorrow, my daughter and her family will be coming down to stay with my dad while we go to the neurosurgeon.  My daughter has the night off from work so she has offered to stay the evening while my husband and I have a night out.  We are going to try to get to the movies and a late dinner.  I am very excited about this!  

Yesterday, my husband was out at out house ripping out the old bathroom (tub, toilet, vanity) and getting it ready to put a shower in that is user friendly for my parents.  With my son's help he was able to get all the old fixtures and stuff out of there.  He has a friend at work that does tile work, and we are hoping he has time to put our shower in.  My husband could do this but he really has NO time since we are living with my parents now.  My husband can put in the toilet and vanity, so we won't have to hire that out.

The dinner that one of the church members brought last night was absolutely delicious! A lovely salad, Chicken Tetrazzinni and a tasty spice cake.  I love her church family!!

It is nice to hear your daughter and family are headed down to lend a hand. It is great to see family members help out in a time of need. Hopefully you and your hubby got some alone time. You need to make sure you two stay strong too.

I'm claustrophobic too so that would never work for me. So glad to hear you and hubby are getting a night out - you both so deserve it!

I wish all of you the best. I have a friend coming to my town this week for a consult on radiation treatments for his brain tumour... so much strength needed.

We had a great night out! Saw Sherlock Holmes movie with Robert Downey Jr. Loved it!

I know.... that mask is kinda scary! Yikes, I don't think I could do it either.
