I think I can

Well only 4 more treatments left. Just like in the book The Little Engine That Could, I am saying "I think I can." That is to make it to this Friday. The little engine had never been over the moutain yet he was willing to try.

The mesh mask doesn't move it is a hard plastic. As stated before my chin hardly can move. The therapists did say I can bring it home as a keepsake on Friday. Hip hip hooray! Where am I going to store that lovely mask? Should I put it in my living room on the mantle? I think not! I don't like to dust as it is. Really it might be a good tool in a different setting. I am not sure but it will be kept in maybe a box in the basement.

No more of being locked in like this . . .

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:5 -8

Here are the Snodgrass superbowl fans! Notice that Carter & Cole made their own shirts. They were very proud. Yes, they are Dave's old t-shirts. The boys slept in them last night. Go Colts! That was the team the boys were rooting for. I think having Daddy growing up in that state made a big impact.

Tomorrow is Joe's last radiation treatment. A little bit of sadness for me. I think I will go over to the Hope Lodge after my 1:15 treatment to say goodbye. He mentioned to me last week of the great memories he has had at Siteman. I have to agree. Having Joe there has made the time more bearable for me. He has a doctors appointment on Wednesday so I know he is not departing ASAP like I would. If I had a jet plane that is how fast I would try to get home. I love you Siteman but not that much.

Dave is leaving for San Fran, CA tomorrow for a business trip. He will return on Celebration Friday. (Maybe a fun gift will be coming home with him. Valentines day is just around the corner. Hint hint sweetheart. I know . . . our money is going towards the ever incoming bills.) Soccer Gram & I will be holding down the fort. It is quite nice that Dave's company has him going during this freezing cold Missouri spell. I wish he could pack me. I have lost weight with all the change in my diet. I think I could fit. Snow is the only thing that would make it better. Snow on the weekend that is - for Carter snowboarding and Cole sledding. Mommy too!

Bought a bouqet of pink roses for myself today. Only $2.99 at Aldi's. What a deal!

kate, you forgot to mention all the other "deals" that you got today, besides the roses. you certainly deserve a little shopping spree, though dave might think otherwise.

Dear Kate,
You may not even have noticed, but I am so sorry my messages to you have significantly dropped off--I have wanted to be consistent so that you know I am among those praying for you, however, circumstances have not allowed me to do so. I AM still praying for you and your family (and Joe), Kate.
Only 3 more treatments to go! Yea!
Hopefully Friday will be here before you know it.

Praying for your eye, your final treatments, and for Dave's safe return later this week.
Love, Tiffani
