Mother’s Day!


We had such a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday!  Everyone pitched in and made food (well, I didn’t, see below) and Linda and Jennifer planned and pulled it all together.

The day started with picking Jen up and taking her to run her errands. It was so nice to be able to spend time with her. Because she is taking me to my radiation treatments, I am getting to see her everyday and we chatter all the way over and back. But Kevin doesn’t get to see her much and he was the one to suggest that we pick her up.

We had dinner at Linda and Bill’s house and it was so nice to have everyone (well everyone but Max who spent the day with his Mother. I totally understand but I missed him!) We got there at noon and dinner wasn’t until 3pm so we had plenty of time to chat and catch up. I usually go up to Linda’s every Thursday and Linda, Mom and I go out shopping but I haven’t been able to go much in the last month and a half. It was nice to spend time with everyone. Dinner was delicious! We had ribs cooked on the BBQ, asparagus, baby squash, potato salad, macaroni salad, fruit, rolls, tossed green salad and a gorgeous cake for dessert. Yum!!

The past few days have been hard because I have been very tired and weak. Not sleepy but just bone tired. It is the chemo drugs and will probably get worse. It is hard to get anything done because I wear out so fast. Sunday wore me out but I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!!

It is wonderful to still have my Mom around for Mother’s Day. She will be turning 100 on May 24th and she had the best time Sunday. I went out on her deck (she lives with Linda and Bill) and she showed me all she had done with her plants. She loves to garden. It occurred to me this morning that none of us took a picture all day. Not sure why we didn’t think of it.

Well, that was our day. The next time we will be getting together will be for the birthdays at the end of the month. We celebrate them all together because they are all within 6 days of each other. This one is obviously going to be very special because of my Mom turning 100 so we are planning a very nice dinner and then a BBQ the next day. My niece and her family are coming out to celebrate with us and we haven’t seen them in a very long time so that will be so exciting!

  1. Dana,

    So glad you got to celebrate Mother’s Day with your family! And you still have your mom at

    100 years old, what a blessing! I’m so sorry you’re so tired, but I know your body is doing

    such hard work to fight the cancer. It’s nice that you get a ride to and from radiation every

    day, that time is special and you don’t have to “be alert” to driving.

    I’ll keep your recovery in my prayers for you and for Kevin.

  2. Thanks Denice! One of the reasons Jen is driving me is that I can’t drive anymore, I lost the sight in my right eye. I know people do drive that way, I am not. I havien’t sold the camaro yet but I am going to. Hard to let go!! See you soon!!
