Spring 2013...and more snow?

Yesterday I finished 5 Radiation treatments to my arm. We zapped the tumor that has been bothering me. It hurts more now than  it has over the past few weeks. It's because it's in the bone. It's swelling and has no where to go. Tumors/legions that are in the soft tissue swell and they aren't as painful. For me anyway. I am also using my arm which doesn't help. 

Thank you Paul,Wayne, Mary & my support team for getting me through another fun city Radiation week. Boy, we have been through many adventures! 

I will now wait patiently for some relief.  This pain is aggravating. 

Spring? It was snowing a few minutes ago here in N.Y. 
I do remember having a beautiful Easter outside in the sunshine a few years ago. I am hoping for another beautiful day. We are hosting Easter Sunday and I am up to 18 family members! Don't worry I am asking for help. Paul and I want to enjoy the day and me fussing over dishes is a pain. I know that he is happier when I ask for help. 
He already does the dishes, laundry...and I love when I see him sweeping! I think I have him trained. Is that possible? I don't want to fake pain...but, this is wonderful. 

I wanted to post a great picture of these stunning flowers Paul brought home for me. He picks them out himself at the florist. I think that is so much more special and sweet.  

Off to get a million things done. 

I need to put the Jelly Beans down. Every flavor is amazing. 

Have a great Thursday
