So much happened yesterday.

First off, George had his blood work done and the doctor was able to see him, all in one day.
His tests are in the high-normal range, and his liver is functioning beautifully (the term his doctor used)
and his spleen is tucked back under his rib cage. That means two things, chemo will be finished in February and that boy will be skiing this month!

Then, for no reason I can discern, my computer fixed itself.  I have been locked out of yahoo, my yahoo email account and etsy for months. I tried everything I could think of to fix it myself, to no avail, and just when I have been trying to arrange for someone to come out and take a look, like magic it works again. My apologies to some pretty late holiday responses. Well I spoke to soon; while writing this post my computer shut down and now I can't get back in yahoo or etsy, but can still get into the blog and facebook. Very strange, but it was great while it lasted!

To make a good day even better, a wonderful friend gifted me the Liebster Blog award! Mona from today...
