What a week so far (and it ain't over yet!)
Monday... oh how I wish I could have attended this event but couldn't make it. Youngest daughter Susan was honored at the Autism Speaks 'Women Who Lead' luncheon at Winged Foot Golf Course in Maromoneck, New York. That's 2 of the 3 sons who were there to cheer her on (and her future daughter-in-law)
She and her husband started the organization Autism Coalition which eventually grew into Autism Speaks. They have put forth such an effort to educate, teach, lead, make things happen for the families dealing with autism. I couldn't be prouder of her. This was the 25th anniversary of the Golf Tournament which Susan and her husband started and led for about 24 of those 25 years. Susan has stepped down. Kevin, however, is the only original board member with Autism Speaks still on the board.
Yep, I would have loved to have been there.
But, the next day Shirley took me over to the hospital for tests... Echocardiogram, Full body CT scan, and bone density scan. Man, I was pooped when that was over. Came home, put my loungy pjs on and crawled up in bed to stream some shows. I'll have to tell you later about some that I have liked.
Then Wednesday... it was Shirley's birthday. She picked me up and we met her daughter and the two granddaughters for lunch at Decoy's to celebrate. It was a 4 generational thing! Shirley's been run ragged living her own life and also taking on the task of all my doctors visits, tests and the upcoming chemo. Couldn't do it without her.
Today... I tried out a new hair dresser. I walked into that salon and I swear, every single hair dresser looked like they just graduated from high school. I wondered how someone that young would understand my 'old' hair. The 'do' is not perfect but we'll work on it, she and I.
So, I'll hang around to see what happens the rest of the week. I do hope I can slow down some. This chick is not as young as she used to be.
