Overheard in the Therapy Room

Therapist: "How is your day going? Did they make you do any exercise?"

80 year old female patient: "Exercise? The only exercise they did was wash my pussy."

Therapist: "OK. Well. Let's get started with our work here, OK? We are going to do some naming. I'd like you to name three things that are hot."

80 year old female patient: "Mae West is one."

Therapist: "I was thinking more along the lines of things that are hot in temperature."

80 year old female patient: "Well young lady, you've got me by the balls on that one."

I wonder if they washed those too....

Results From The Mashing Of The Boobs

I know this is very tiny print, but if you click on the picture you can enlarge it.

If you are too tired to do that I'll just tell you:

Results of the mammogram were Within Normal Limits.
Sigh of relief....

See A Similarity?

Okay. Last week I was in a different place and would not have thought this was funny.

But, today I do.

Thank You Mrs. Davilla

Behind this door lives an elderly woman I hardly know.

Her name is Mrs. Davilla. She has been my across the hall neighbor for several years.
Our contact in the past have been limited to short conversations in the hallway. Just small talk really as we are going in and out of our apartments.
I have been inside her studio apt once. It was the time she left her front door slightly open for a few hours. I had been doing my laundry and had passed by her door a dozen times attending to my clothes in the laundry room.
I was a little worried about going in to check on her. Lisa convinced me I should, so I went inside to make sure she hadn't slipped in the bathroom or something like that.
The place was totally empty and dark. So I closed and locked her door.
When she came back a few days later I told her how I had found the door and that I had gone in to make sure she was OK.
Turns out she was waiting just outside the hallway door for her daughter to pick her up for a short trip. She had all her luggage outside and when she saw her daughter pull up on the street, she just headed out and forgot to close her door.
That is when we started checking on each other more, exchanged phone numbers etc.
She is a good neighbor.

She noticed that I have been home a lot, that I had my sister here and asked how I was doing. We talked about my cancer. She also has a sister in Texas who is suffering from breast CA.

Since that conversation, Mrs Davilla has been bring me food every week. Sometimes twice a week. She has made enchiladas, Mexican potato soup, Mexican meatballs, Mexican pudding, banana pudding, pineapple upside-down cake, a fruit plate with melon, kiwi, pineapple, grapes, chicken soup, casseroles, spaghetti. She has given me two vases of flowers as well as a plant.

We all have friends that in times of trouble will come through for us. For me it's been my sisters, Lisa, Susan and Briana. There are many others who offer emotional support as well like Carmen, Eva, Margarita and Chris. And, of course, all of my co-workers have been extremely supportive and generous. I know if I needed anything, all I would have to do is ask.

But, Mrs. Davilla has been an angel to me. She sends me get well cards. She prays for my recovery. She doesn't really know me and yet she continues to give of herself in support of me.
She has truly shown me the love of Christ.
She is an example of what I need to be.

Overheard At Dylan and Co.

Dylan (seated in the backseat of the car): "Tagi, can you read this book to me?"

Kathy:" I wish I could, Dillie, but the print is too small for me to see from the front seat. I have old eyes."

Dylan: "Old eyes? No, you have pretty eyes."

Kathy: "Thank you, Dylan, they may be pretty but they are still old. Do you like that book about race cars? Did you watch the big race on Sunday at your grandma and grandpa's house?"

Dylan: "Yes. They were fast cars!"

Kathy: "You know, I have been around that race track. It's called the Indy 500. I have been around it twice."

Dylan: "Really? That's a lot when you have cancer!"

Kathy: "Well, you know I don't have cancer now. The doctor took it out."

Dylan: "The doctor took it out?"

Kathy: "Yes."

Dylan (pause): "But, you're still old."

Number 6

Just a little movie from my last chemo.
And, did I mention, I'm never going back?
Yes...I think I did.

A big, big thank you to Susan who took me to four of my treatments, including yesterday. It made me feel better to have someone there with me. My sister took me for the other two.
It was such a time commitment and I appreciate them both so much for helping me through it.

We met up with Briana and Addie for a nice lunch afterward (love that chopped salad!).
It was good to spend that time with two wonderful friends and my favorite little girl.
