Anxiously Waiting

This week I start the trial. Wednesday I go for blood work and scans and begin the pills on Thursday. I am most anxious.

I am extremely uncomfortable. My side hurts, my back hurts; nothing that I need to be snowed for (morphine) at this point - just uncomfortable. Luckily the weather has been nice and we have been able to get out for a bit.

We went to a concert on Sunday that featured the Pennsylvania Ballet (a first time event - pairing the ballet with the orchestra). This performance was part of the Philadelphia Festival of the Arts celebration currently taking place at venues all over the city. The festival encompasses live performances (ballet, theater), art exhibits and cinema. This is an event that should be recognized (inter)nationally for the level and diversity of programs that are offered.

I managed to take a couple of walks, and even took my weights out of the closet (2 and 5 lbs. only). The weight work did make me feel a bit better; I'll try again today.

That's all for anow. Going to put the invitations together for the "baby shower". Will try to write more over the weekend.

Hi Mary

I hope that the trial went ok this week and also that you are feeling more comfortable. I can't believe you got those weights out ... crazy girl. I hope you had fun getting ready for the baby shower. Baby showers are getting more common in the UK now. Take care and sending you hugs. Terry x
