We went down to the river to play. There was a lot of graffiti on the old, abandoned bridge.

Here I am taking a photo.

This is one view of the Little Cahaba River from the bridge.

I visited the Oncologist. She said I was doing well. My blood work looked good. I have chemo every 3 weeks. The chemo is really hard on me. I’m weak and sick for days afterwards.

I like a little Ganisha with me when I go to chemo.

I had a lovely birthday.
The pound cake is delicious and I still had enough wind to blow out the candles.

My brother-in-law and sister gave me a card, a cool shirt and a Tervis tumbler. Unexpected presents.

A Y’all Sweet Tea t-shirt. Pretty cool.

I am blessed.
