I posted as we were leaving Anderson this morning. I expected the news to be good but it’s always wonderful to hear “Looks good.” and “We’ll see you in six months.” I did ask about having my check ups in Venice. They weren’t too thrilled with the idea. They like their machines They like having a baseline they can work from. They really weren’t enthused about changing it all. They did say that if it really was a problem, we could work it out but they’d rather work around my schedule and have me come there, etc. etc. So I said, okay, we’ll keep coming back.
It is an expense…even with a place to stay. And it does take a big chunk of time. And we do so much traveling that it would be nice to NOT have to do this too. But, you know, they saved my life and they’ve done a good job…may as well stay with the guys that brought me this far.
We left Anderson and wandered around Rice Village for awhile…neat little enclave with restaurants and shops. My niece, Jill, met us for lunch. So good to see her. We would have loved to see Chris and Jackie, too. We just didn’t get ourselves organized soon enough to plan it. Next time…And we didn’t see Anne and Clark. They were away on a cruise through the Panama Canal…We’ll see them in July at Sean and Carly’s wedding.
It is absolutely incredible to think that at this time last year I was getting ready for surgery. I was also get lots of good news as one test after another showed no evidence of cancer. I imagine I would have gotten the same results if I had stayed home but honestly, I am so glad we made the trip out here and went through treatment here. It worked!
Two books…Reading The Descent by Tim Johnston. I think I heard about it on NPR but I’m not sure. Well done…but horrifying. A girl goes missing story…why do I read such weird stuff?
And The Whites by Richard Price…liking it a lot. Another NPR book, I think. NYC cop story really well written. I feel as if I know the characters.
On we go to Los Angeles…lots of things to do, places to go on our list. Home again right after Easter!
