My husband was all geared up on Thursday to go in for his chemoembolization, we packed a suite case and was all ready for a 3 day stay, but after 20 minutes the doctor came out and said he did not need chemo at all and that he is responding remarkable to the NEXAVAR meds, that is a chemo pill he take 4 a day. We stayed for 4 hours while he re cooped from the cath. thru his artery in the groin area and then we were on our way to home sweet home. YAY!!! we were so happy and i am so relieved that he is doing so well.

My mother is getting better everyday, soon we will have the family back to one piece, god is good and he answers prayers that's for sure.

I stitched up this pillow case yesterday and added a little crochet trim to it, i love the way it turned out. I have started a baby afghan getting ready for our new little one, we don't know if boy or girl yet so i just bought some nice baby sport yarn that was on sale, i love the colors, but i am hoping i can go back and get PINK.

I will be going to Virginia at the end of this month to spend a week with my daughter, she has to have a cerclage(cervix stitched) so I will be with her to help her and take care of my dear turtle, I can't wait to see him, he called me today and sang twinkle twinkle little star to me. He is so sweet!

We are finally having that perfect Florida weather and I was able to get out and relax a bit today, but first I baked chocolate chip cookies for my husband and no I did not cheat. I am on week 9 of the diet and i have lost a total of 12.5 inches total, and 4.5 off my belly, I am so pleased with the way it is going, and I have been following my healthy eating habits so far.
Hope you all had a great week and weekend!

Really, really happy to hear your hubbie and mom are doing better.

Nice toes, but what part of Florida are you in. All I've had here outside of TPA is rain, rain and more rain. But, I'm thinking I know the day you took that picture.

Fingers crossed for nice weather this weekend.

Great job on getting all that crochet ready to go. Now, what are you going to work on while up with your daughter. Hopefully, something fun

Hugs and Wishes for a sunny day tomorrow,

Well I'm so glad you are back on deck and with lots of good news too!
Also glad to see you taking a little chill out time by the pool.

You must be proud of yourself on your diet . My weight has blown out with my visitors and time to get it off before my trip is passing by very quickly.....and all that lovely French food ahead. I'll be packing stretchy clothers that's for sure!
