I keep getting in hot water because I am not blogging or journaling enough.. 
Its Sunday night and I'll try to get this one done before I go to bed... However my fingers are very numb tonight ( from the Neuropathy) so there might be lots of mistakes that I miss. 

We landed back at Lost Valley Lake late on Tues. Aug 10 and got everything set up so we were in business again.  Everything has to be taken down from the desk and all the pictures I have above the windows on the ledge have to be taken down too so it takes a while to get stuff back where it belongs.
Our Trip was uneventful.... thank goodness.  We stayed at our favorite half way place in Osceola, Iowa at Terribles Casino.  I sometimes don't go in but decided to this time and I had my $20 with me so decided to play something.  I had seen someone playing a machine that was called Leaping Leamers.
hmmmm looked cute to me... I put in my money and pretty soon those little leamers had leaped around enough to make me 25 dollars richer.  I walked out of there with $45.50.    Jerry was not quite so lucky and lost $8.00.  Oh well...When we got here it was about 92 degrees... a bit different than Hoyt Lakes.

Went to the Doc and had my treatment on Wed. and everything went as usual.. a bit foggy but ok to do a bit of shopping.  Jerry is getting good and finding things for me to try on.  I hate shopping so he does the finding and I do the  trying... ha ha  Thursday I had to go back to the Clinic to get my Neulasta shot so we decided to go to the movie.  We saw Salt and really enjoyed it...

It is now August 25th and we are once again in Hoyt Lakes Minnesota.  I convinced my Doctor that I could get very good treatment up here so I will have my  first treatment tomorrow.  On the way up here we took a trip to Door County Wisconsin and really enjoyed that.  Its a very touristy peninsula only about 60 miles long.  Lots of small towns up and down each side of the peninsula with lots of fun shops and restaurants.  We also toured a Maritime Museum and a submarine which we really enjoyed also.  Weather here in Northern Minnesota is very unpredictable.  Day before yesterday it was 84 degrees and then dropped to 68 today.  Tomorrow about 73 but gets very cool at night so that we actually have to have the furnace on.  We will be coming back to  Missouri on Sept 15th. I will have my PET scan (please pray for me) on the 16th and we will then fly out to Michigan to Cory and Jens house for a Baby Shower... Wowsa.... After that I do not know what we will be  doing as it will all depend on the Doc and the results of the PET.  It would be nice if we could take a much anticipated trip out East but plans will be cemented after the 21st.  I am so glad Jerry retired last year and so glad we are living in a Motor Home.  If we weren't I might be sitting watching TV instead of traveling all over... What a  wonderful life..

As far as my health goes ...
I am feeling very good except for my Neuropathy... Actually at times my feet feel like bricks and ache bad enough to take pain pills.  My fingers are tingly and numb all the time but I will survive...I get tired after any physical exercise and have to rest awhile at times..   I am thankful to be alive and able to keep going so I'm not complaining..

I am not sure what I do all day long but I sure seem to never accomplish any thing.  I have not done any crafts nor made any new cards since last Christmas.. Maybe next month I will get something done... ha ha

Must close for now or I might not get this published..
Hope to hear from some of you as to what you have been doing all summer..

  1. Good to see you post Chele! Sounds like you are doing pretty well and traveling all over the place. Sorry the neuropathy is so bad. Fingers crossed that your pet scan will look good.
