Anesthesia, here I come!

My trip down MRI lane revealed a mass considerably larger than anyone expected. Quicker, more aggressive action is the new plan. So tomorrow I will go to the hospital to have a cathiport installed in preparation for Wednesday's first delicious dose of chemotherapy! Yum yum.....gimme some o' dat poison! (forgive me if I seem callous.....the crying gets old after a while).

My daughter wants to hold down the fort by herself. She's totally capable...but what mom wouldn't worry???

If I cowgirl up enough after the surgery, my dad is giving me his ticket to see "Wicked" that night. Cool or what!?

And yes, I WILL be at church Sunday! I can't wait!


  1. Good luck, Rosemary. You are in my prayers.

  2. I'm hoping you are doing well enough to go. That is a show I want to see so badly! The tickets were gone in an instant!! Good PaPa!!!

  3. Give Kate my number if she needs anything. She'll do great, though. Don't forget Karaoke!

    I wouldn't worry with daughters like you have, they will do a great job at long as Will and Nic don't make anymore home made bottle explosives...we will make sure they behave themselves.

    Enjoy Wicked!!!

  5. I'm so glad you started this blog. It helps me feel more connected to everything. Still wish I were closer. I'm so thrilled you liked Wicked so much!

  6. Rosemary,

    I don't know if I've been living under a rock at church or what (I guess Primary can do that to you, :) ) but I hadn't heard any rumors or anything.

    I was shocked when I read it in the Relief Society email announcements. I am glad that you've decided to do the blog thing. And I want you to know that I can't imagine any other woman handling this situation with more grace and wisdom than you. You are one of my spiritual heroes. YOU ROCK, GIRL!!! Keep up the battle!

  7. I am so glad you got to enjoy Wicked, and I was so happy to see you on Sunday. You are a light in the room. You are so very strong, and it shows.

  8. Good Luck Rose! We will keep Rose in our thoughts and prayers
