So I did it!!
Been behind most of the time but here it is the final picture!!
Two Prayer Shawls, My Mom made the red one & the ladies at my church made the white one. The white one went to Chapel Hill with Mom & I.
I get to met my Oncology Dr. on the 8 of January, Chapel Hill is allowing me to do Chemo here instead of there. I don't know where this journey will led too, but will tell you it's scary!!

Dashboard of my brother's Mini Cooper, cool!!!
He picked me up from the hospital late yesterday morning. Remember I was having kidney stones & a bladder infection that would not go away. Anyway they sent me to a urologist last Thursday & they did a cystoscope he found a tumor the size of a half dollar. So I had surgery on Wednesday morning spent the night in the hospital. They ordered bed rest with constant flushing of the bladder, morphine every 2 hours. I have to wear a catheter till Monday morning, So not fun!! Still in pain & can't sit down for long :(
