for Pat Adair, and the people who love her...

Our beloved Pat got some shocking news recently, and we're off and running on a mysterious medical adventure. Not an adventure we would have picked, but we're off just the same... (If you're new to the blog, start here.)

Another good week

More good stuff. Mom's had pretty good energy this week - good enough to drive herself to Curves one day for a workout! That same afternoon she went out for lunch with a large group of girlfriends. By the time she got home she practically passed out she was so tired, but she managed to stay up long enough to watch "Lost" until 10 p.m. (To support Patio, I've forced myself to become totally addicted to "Lost" - but just for her sake. Now that's dedication.)

One day Mom realized that she'd forgotten her pain pill that morning. She's been taking Oxycodone, a powerful medication. But her main source of pain was from her hip, unrelated to the cancer, and the injection to her hip was so successful that she's been pain-free. So for the last few days she's off the stuff altogether.

When Mike came down we went for a great drive up to the top of Mt. Diablo, where none of us have been for years. (That's where we took these photos - click them for a larger view.) We used to go there regularly when the family all lived in Walnut Creek. We drove by the house where we used to live and even went by our old high school. It was pretty fun.

I've dedided to start watching Lost also, just for Aunt Pat support. I've watched it before (like every week and even reruns even though I've seen them too) but this time it's for Aunt Pat. And also, I wanted to mention that I've had a couple sit down visits with John Lock. (some people call him my boyfriend) I'm sure he sends his love too. :-)

I've started walking too Aunt Pat. Next visit lets walk together! I love you. I'm glad to hear you are doing so well. The pictures are beautiful, nice scenery too!
