I have mostly been home for appointments, both chemotherapy and my nutritional IV's. Some sweet angel (I'm not naming names but THANK YOU SUSAN!) generously put $200 on my account at the Center for Traditional Medicine and that pays for more IV's and some vitamins that I cannot get on Amazon such as Maxiflav.

He has been speaking to a surgical oncologist named Dr. Serene Perkins (check her out, I've provided a link) who has become very familiar with my records and condition. She happens to be a specialist in bile duct and liver cancer as well as a transplant specialist.......hmmmm......sounds good to me!
|Awesome poppy field somewhere in northern Utah|
YOU all have been my support, my scaffolding upon which I draw my strength. You all help me out when I am penniless and in need of medication so that I can feel somewhat like a "normal" person. You give me that strength to get up the challenging rock climb and it is your voices and prayers that I hear whenever I am not certain about the future or when I am feeling like death is lurking nearby. Thank you so much!

|Awesome secret "locals" swimming hole in Moab.|
Me and my fire...I love to build a campfire! We cooked sweet potatoes and fresh corn roasted in the husks for dinner this night. Who says road food has to be bad food? You just have to be creative!

|The BEST (and maybe only) thrift store in Moab!|

Jeff and I also spent a week up in Mazama near Winthrop and Twisp, WA. It was beautiful and we had the campground to ourselves for 3 or 4 out of 5 or 6 days we were there! It was climbing heaven! It was also so peaceful and beautiful! The little swing I found out in the middle of the woods near a trailhead. I expected to see fairies!

There are days that I feel like doing nothing at all, days I don't have the energy to even make food for myself or get up long enough to do just about anything. Then there are those days that I feel great! On those days I get out and take it all in, the smells, sights and sounds. I want to hold it close and never, ever forget it.
