Kicking A$$

My cold / bronchitis is kicking my A$$!  Yes, it is now cruising into week three and I'm still really under the weather.   When I'm a little more upbeat I will respond to you that have tagged me, but currently my head is so full of cold and gorp I can't think straight enough to answer your questions...but I will.

Unfortunately or fortunately life goes on so here is a mini report.

  •  round three of chemo ~ Bob has gone to ground, we do communicate by email or phone, but he is really feeling the effects after this round.  God Bless him for going through all of this for the sake of gathering information for others with this experimental chemo cocktail.
  • our winter is the weirdest I can remember ever since moving to Ottawa.  Snow followed by freezing rain, then rain...repeat.  That was unheard of when I first moved here.  We'd get tons of snow, then it would snow, followed by more snow.  This is becoming more like Toronto weather...hey Toronto, you can keep this crap!
  • this past weekend was the Walk for Memories and I'd really like to THANK those who supported Dad and I with their more than generous donations towards fighting this debilitating disease. There was a great turn-out for the walk with many local celebrities showing their support.  Hopefully as the Baby Boomers (me), head into our Senior Years, the Alzheimer Society will receive the funding they require to find a cure and stop this heartbreaking condition.


    Dad walked 10k!!
    Life's fun if you don't weaken,

How amazing is it that your Dad was out there and walking 10K. Truly inspiring.

Agreed on winter. I don't love the snow OR cold, but all of this up & down is driving me nuts and I'm pretty sure it's not doing us any favours with our colds.

Get well soon, friend!

hope you feel better, and pass on some of the ass kickin to Bob, I'm sure he could use it (for his own purposes of course!).

Start bathing in orange juice and mainlining chicken soup. That should do it. Take care of you.

I love that your dad walked 10K!

Feel better. It's no fun being under the weather.

And I'm with you, this winter has sucky weather.

I hope you don't mind, but I just tagged you. I guess I wanted to add to your misery :-).

yup, your right, life goes on. But you still do a good job of kicking @$S ....

I remember probably 20 years ago when Winterlude was Waterlude, so it does happen sometimes. I wish I could send you limes from my garden, a big kick of vitamin C. Hang in there, and your friend Bob is a real Champion, along with your Dad.

Well done on collecting money for such a worthy cause.
