Short & Sweet

I am hopefully going to make this post short and sweet with minimal words. Just wanting to update you on certain details.

1. Cole was able to see by surprise his long time friend, Drew, Friday after school for a few hours.

2. Outpatient therapy for me should be totally complete with a plethora of HEP's (home exercise program) incorporating the usage of the left side hand/shoulder, feet/leg and involving putty,therabands, and a therasponge, some manual balance, also muscles not knowing I ever had. Please pray for time management.

3. It seems evident after the second surgery my ability to divide my attention/ multi tasking is difficult. I will try to give some specific examples later. Please do not hesitate to remind me in a post comment in a few weeks.

4.This afternoon Carter, Cole and I enjoyed the great spring like temperature outside with a long bike ride. I was thankful due to a longing I had a few weeks ago in taking the boys on a bike ride but knowing I would have been unable with my left sided limitations. It was good to be out enjoying the day after a short nap.

5. Had bloodwork taken this morning. The results to be known on Monday at oncologist, Dr. Needles, appointment. Will start 5 day oral chemo, Temodar on Friday, March 7 if he deems necessary. (depending on the blood counts)

Short and sweet,- hope you are doing well.

Hi Kate,
It was so great to see the entire Snodgrass family outside this weekend. What gorgeous weather! You look fantastic & everyone had such a great time. It was great to see Stuart & Alex playing together. He has really missed his buddy & outside time! We will continue to keep you in our prayers for your upcoming chemo & bloodwork results. Let us know if there is anything we can do for you...remember, we are just next door!

Wow, Kate! You can ride a bike now??? I don't think I can even do that anymore. Praise the Lord for your great progress. We continue to lift you up in prayer. . .
