Today's a Better Day...So Far

This morning Heather asked me if I had posted again on her blog, and my response was no as there is nothing really to report of excitement in my eyes. I then told her I would put something up about how excited I am that the Yankee's lost in there home opener of the new 1.5 billion dollar stadium and all the money that they spend on a yearly basis is a total waste, surprisingly again she rolled her eyes. Obviously, she does not share the same feelings for baseball that I do, and the utter hatred of the evil empire. So I guess I will give a quick update of what took place over yesterday.

Heather had received her highest dose of the chemo and it really took affect yesterday. She had a very rough morning and really felt bad. However, the afternoon was better. Angie came and paid us a nice little visit and brought us a few little goodies to get through the rest of the week. Other than that Heather slept most of the day yesterday.

Since she is sleeping most of the day, she tends to be more of a night owl. She is even somewhat chipper at 2:30, 3:30, and 4:30 in the morning. This morning we had the wicked nurse of the east come in and turn on all of the lights in our room to draw blood, and Heather hardly even made a comment. I think she even snickered as I flailed to cover my eyes from the light that I swear was brighter than the sun. Also, I heard Heather talking on her cell phone at 3:30 in the morning with one word answers-like she was talking to a recording. I figured I was dreaming, but it turns out she fell prey to an infomercial last night,and I think we have a new vacuum.

In other news the kids had a great day yesterday with their Grandpa Snyder. He took them to the zoo and I think they may have even gone to a park. They ended the day at one of Kyler's favorite places to eat- "The Moose Place" aka the Rib Crib. Dad turned the big 6-0 yesterday, and they nearly burned the house down trying to light all those candles. Happy Birthday Dad, we will have to celebrate when we get back into town.

Blowing Out the Candles

Today is the last day of this round that Heather will be on drugs followed by a couple of days of fluids and then we take the jet back home. I will think that Heather will resume the blog again after we get back home.

With Love and God Bless

Cody- Got to love the irony that millions of dollars can't buy you a winning game.

Grandpa Snyder- Happy Birthday!!

Heather- You go girl. Not even chemo can stop you from shopping! I got those sham-wow towels, not so impressed. But those glass bulbs to water your plants are great. Found out though if you have problems watering your plants to begin with, probably won't remember to fill the ball either. Thinking of you. -Amy Miranda

Want to set the record straight -- we couldn't set the house on fire with the candles because we couldn't find any matches but we sure had a great time pretending to blow out candles.

Both of you are in our prayers and constant thoughts. We will love to have you home soon!

Love, Mom Snyders
