What's the number


It is time again to update. I have hand and foot syndrome it has gotten worse. My hands and feet are very sore and at night it tends to get a little worse. I saw the doctor this week and she said it isn't bad enough to stop treatment. Plus it seems to be working really well the chemo Xeloda. We assume this from my new CA2729 number which is now 100 and some. I can't remember if it is 150 or 113 either way this is awesome. Normal is 0-40. I have had it as low as 24 and as high as 818. So this is great news. I still have three more rounds of chemo. I am so excited numbers haven't done this well in a long while.

Just a shout out to Great Grandma Basset thank you so much for your cards you send every week. What a blessing you have been in my life. I hope you are getting better. Not saying that I haven't appreciated all the other cards, dinners, babysitting and house cleaning and even just the how are u's and the hello's, the comments on the blog they all mean a lot. They seem to always come at a good time and are very much appreciated. I haven't said that in a while so thank you so much.

I hope we see some warmer weather soon. We went to Cal. to visit Ryan's grandma she had a stroke. The weather was beautiful it was in the 70's and 80's while we were there. Apparently they had a lot of rain lately so much the farms were still flood a little. So I am looking forward to the 70's and 80's. It seems the last two spring/summer it goes 50's low 60's to 90's no in between. I would like a some spring weather.

One more thing, I know that not everyone that reads this blog is LDS but I still feel the need to bear my testimony of the truthfulness of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that God I know with out the Savior and the knowledge of the gospel I would not be here today. I have a strong testimony that there is a true and living prophet on the earth today. Who I love for his great example of Service and his leadership. That the gospel of Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. That Joesph Smith translate the Book of Mormon and that he was a prophet of God. I know that without the priesthood and worth priesthood holders here on the earth today and that I would not have received so many blessing surviving this cancer I have. I love my Savior and all the many, many blessings he has given to me. I also know that the temple is the house of our Heavenly Father. I have a testimony of this. I am thankful for the temple and for the bless of being able to have an eternal family.

Again thanks for all those who still read and comment.

I am amazed that your A 27-29 has come down so quickly and just hope that it continues to fall.

OH ya I forgot Your mom is as beautiful as her daughters;) and your sisters baby is very cute! Your parents came to the car wash the other day I wanted so bad to give your mom a hug, but that would be super weird since they did know who I was. They are awesome and your very blessed to have wonderful parents and sisters.
