Sunny Sunday

What a gorgeous spring day we are having. It was 70 degrees on our deck at the peak of the day, and I've fired up the barbeque to make sure it will work for dinner tonight. It is hard to believe that we will have to go back to rainy spring weather for another 3 months.........

Today is our 5th wedding anniversary, and we could not have asked for a better day. Patsy and Dave watched the little ones for us last night, so we got to sleep in this morning, and woke just in time to have family and friends over for coffee. Bryan and Michal got Nick outside to play a little frisbee (with the help of both Libby and Darian). At the moment everyone is resting, and will hopefully wake up in time to go visit the park and ride bikes and trikes. If only the tulips were out.

Nick goes in for IV chemo tomorrow. He has not had as much energy as he had during the first few weeks, so we are going to ask Dr. Jafari if he should go back on the prednisone. We hope to get him on something that can boost his energy levels. He is really responding to music right now, so I need to get the IPOD on full-time and compile a list of high-energy songs that will make him want to sing along. Send your suggestions for your favorite 'feel good' songs our way.

Gotta run, I hear someone waking up from a nap.


  1. So glad to hear that frisbee and music are part of the 'get-well' recipe. Combined with Libby's exercises, I just can't see how Nick won't be tip top in no time. I'll send a CD of music your way asap.

    Hugs and prayers from Alaska,

    Sara and co.

  2. Ellie and I will be in town on Wednesday and this weekend. We'll give you a call and hopefully find a time to stop by. Happy anniversary!

  3. Grease Soundtrack tunes, for sure. I know Nick's been wanting to lip-sync to those ever since Mr. Kvistad figured out the lyrics and put a damper on the talent show. I have a vague memory of Mr. K lifting the needle on the record every time the word "sh**" came up. Maybe I imagined that.
    I hope the IV chemo went well! Eat up, Nick, you can do it!
