She can walk around her house but is still weak.

I can never catch up on all the posts but thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Have a blessed day.
Good to see you back again, so sorry you are walking such a difficult path right now. As you say, cancer sucks!
Know that we are here for you and often in our thoughts and prayers.

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be another hot and humid day here with a high in the upper 80's. It looks like we may see some rain this morning so at least we won't heat up as quick. Not much an my agenda for today. I just need to get some stuff done around the apartment. Exciting stuff!! I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!

If you can stay on the main arteries going past the city it is fine, it is more the downtown areas near the lake that are hardest hit.
Good grief! Stay dry and safe!

Thank you for the update. I'm sorry you both have to go through such distress. I'm glad they were able to deal with the problem. The hospital does make the difference sometimes.

My new location at the office---sorry it's so dark! The flash was on, but it didn't help. (The desk lamp and camp lantern are there because the overhead lighting hasn't been installed yet.) Even though it's an overcast day, there's a nice amount of natural light. The building was a clock and watch factory built in the 1880s to take advantage of daylight.

We got an email from a friend of ours who's on vacation at Disney World. He was surprised to see a German-themed store all dressed for Christmas. I sent an email back introducing him to the concept of Christmas in July! I couldn't resist posting the photo---the shop looks beautiful.
