Hello friends, I watched a movie tonight called Living Proof. It was a true story based on a Doctor Shalmar, who discovered the chemo drug Herceptin for Breast Cancer victims. It was very moving to see how hard he worked to save lives and have this drug approved by the FDA. His wife was so supportive of him and he cared so much for his patients. He had the hardest cases, all stage 4 and society had nothing else to offer them and he still had to fight tooth and nail to help these women. You know as a result of his hard work, the women involved in the trials, many survived though some didn't, I am alive today. I was a recipient of that drug. I hated it, but then I hated Chemo but I am still here and cancer free so I thank this caring doctor and those wonderful women who have walked this walk before me. I am not sure I know anyone who has not been touch either directly or indirectly by this horrid disease. Bless you Dr. Shalmar and your wonderful trial patients.
I had another great day today. It was sunny then cloudy off and on all day. I managed to get a lot done as my friend Terry, arrives in the morning. I made up the guest room, tidied the house and picked up some extra groceries. Just a few of things I know Terry enjoys. She wouldn't let me do it if she were here, that's why I did it today.
Now tonight was a different story. We had an horrendous thunder and lightening storm. Our power went off for a short time and the rain came pouring down. We really need the rain though and I know the farmers will be happy. As I write this I can smell the fresh air and cut grass through my window. It smells "clean" one of my favorite smells.
I hope it is clear tomorrow as Terry and I are going to do some work outside, she is going to help me finish my flowers, put the straps on the new deck box and use the ladder to put a hanger beside my patio door to hang one of my baskets. I get dizzy with heights and they don't bother her at all. She always reminds me when she calls to make my list so we can get everything done when she is here. Her husband, builds homes for a living and Terry has picked up so much knowledge from him. Last summer she even put in a new light fixture for me, I just stand there and hand her whatever she ask for. I am blessed to have her for a friend.
I am off to answer my comments now and read my favorite blogs, I wanted to do this post first tonight just in case the power goes out again.
Hopefully I will have some pictures to post tomorrow night.
Take care my friends, Good Night and God Bless........:-) Hugs
