We got together around 1:30 and had a wonderful dinner together and then we opened presents.
Here are all the kids getting ready for there gifts.
I'm not sure but I think Michael is directing where the presents go. : )
Seth got a set of walkie talkies and is very excited to try them out in the woods once the snow melts.
Jake got a new Webkin and it's a Spider Monkey. He loves it and it's already gone to school to show his friends.
Duane got his electric blanket. I think he was the most upset that Christmas was cancelled cause he wanted his new blanket. His old one finally stopped working. He mentioned he wouldn't have minded if I would have just mailed it to him so he didn't have to wait.
Bev is trying to get the walkie talkies working and Mick is opening one of his gifts. I think this one was the tool set.
After we got done opening gifts the big kids all went up to play the Wii. My brother and sister-in-law brought over Super Mario Bros.
Here's Jamie and Bev trying to play. The younger kids were getting upset that they couldn't play.
Jamie teasing Sidney with her blanket.
Once the kids got done playing they all come down to the Great Room to watch a little TV and a movie.
I had my brother take a picture of me with out my hat on. That way I have at least one picture of me to remind me of all the fun I've had.
Then I had my sister-in-law take a picture of me, Bev, AJ.
So an update of me. I'm now on my new chemo drug. The first round I had did not go very well. They gave me Benadryl first and I thought I was going to crawl out of my skin. I couldn't sit still, so they gave me two doses of something to counter the reaction. Well of course that made me tired and I ended up sleeping through most of my treatment. Once I was home my fingers got very swollen and my eye sight got blurry. Once the swelling went down in my fingers the skin started to peel. My eye sight has gotten a little better. The second round the nurses made the doctor come in and take a look at my hands and talk with me. After looking at my skin and nails he told me that if I had that reaction again he would make me stop treatment. The reaction I was having normally doesn't happen until after the 5th or 7th time. But of course nothing happened this last time like that. Instead I got very tired and my joints started to hurt. Which they told me was suppose to happen. So now I'm a little up in the air for my third treatment. It sounds like the doctor is going to sit down with Jamie and I. He wants to figure out if we should be done and move on to the surgery or finish out the last two treatments. I'm leaning more to finishing the treatments, but we will listen to what he has to say first.
