Well we are in our final destination for the winter..  Laughlin Nevada.  We arrived here on Sat the ninth after a great visit with the Kinkades and the Bullards in Yuma.  The weather there was absolutly wonderful.  Its about 10 degrees cooler in Laughlin but there are so many more friends here and so many more things to do that so far we dont mind the coolness at all.  Of course I'm always cold and its actually warm enough that everyone else just has shirts on and I always have a jacket of some sort...

We settled in for two and a half days and then took off on Tues to Las Vegas.  My appointment was the 12th.  I love the doctor and feel real good about the next trial.  As I said before I'm hoping for a miracle and think that 2010 will be the year. It is a woman doctor and she has great credentials and a wonderful bedside manner.  She has conferred with my doc in Missouri and they have decided that this new drug Ixperia is the one to go with this time.  Its supposed to be easy on the side effects so I'm hoping !!!  So far its been pretty good.  I will have to go back every three weeks for a treatment but I can handle that. It is a much bigger Clinic that what I am used to but everyone was very nice and I felt quite comfortable there.

While we were in Las Vegas - my friend from Chicago was in Pheonix visitimg another friend so she came up to be with us.  We saw two shows... Terry Fator  - The winner of AMERICAS GOT TALENT and he was fabulous and then we saw the Beatles LOVE Cirque de Soleil which was really fabulous.  We had a great time and left there yesterday.  She came here to spend the night with us and will go back to Pheonix today.

On Sunday we have another couple coming to visit us on their way back to Colorado from Arizona.  I have not seen here for about four years and have been trying to get to her place in Colorado for about that long.  It will be so good to see them.  At the end of the month my ex sis in law and her husband (who we visited in Yuma) will be coming for about four days and some friends from Okla and Palm Springs will be coming in Feb.  This is great... We go on vacation and everyone comes to visit us.. ha ha... Any one else want to come...????  Glad to have you... I am going to try very hard to get to Parump Nev to see one of the Pandimites that I have know for several years but only seen once.  Cyber friends for sure..Parump is not to far from Vegas so we will try to get there mayabe next time I have to go..  Also one of the many largest Truck Stops that I am determined to see is there so I will make the trip twofold.. ha ha

Well must go get some breakfast...
Keep you fingers crossed for me that this new drug works.
I know I have lots of prayers and white lights out there so I'm counting on this being the year of remission...
