Sick all week

When I went to the support group, other cancer survivors fell into two camps. Either hated going to the doctor or liked having regular checkups as verification they were still cancer free. I personally didn't feel strongly either way. I'm definitely not worried about my cancer coming back. This past week (or two) I had an awful cough and went to the doctors. Firstly I learned that once you're a cancer survivor they don't just write you a prescription and send you on your way. You get the full treatment! Chest X-rays for a cough! Lesson learned, I'm not going to the doctor unless I'm really really sick. Secondly, I hated being there. My primary doctor is at Lahey which is where I was originally diagnosed but not treated. I don't know if it was having to talk about my cancer diagnosis & treatment with the doctor or being in the same place where I heard that news but I really didn't want to be there. It's a part of life and I'll suck it up but I was surprised to feel that way.

Happier thoughts are we've been enjoying the return of summer weather. Playing outside is a lot of fun.

Cassidy helps us find dog poo! She was walking up to her swings when she came across one, she turned around yelling "Poop Poop" LOL. She's a really big help.

Our neighbors have a 2 1/2 year old daughter. Cassidy always wants to say hi to Nina over the fence but doesn't understand that I can't pick her up that high. Even Bill has to stand on a rock!

My cousin gave us her son's old Play Doh tools and stuff! We've played with it every single day since we got it. We love using the cookie cutters to make shapes!
