Another brush with celebrity.

Sally went to the funeral of her aunt Pat and I stayed home with the kids so they wouldn't be a distraction. I didn't do much today because , I want to be in Three Toed Sloth mode. I want to make sure my blood pressure comes down before Monday. I want no more delays and want to be back to work with two Chemos done before then.My STD Ends on August 5Th but, I would like to be back a week earlier if possible. Not saying I want to leave my family to go back to work. I just want to be a part of Avery again.The pain that I have been feeling only really bothers me more at night not as much during the day. Slowly but surely getting better.

I know a long time ago that I mentioned my bucket list and only mentioned 4 things so far and will come up with 6 more, I have another one I would like to add.
6.) I would really like to learn an instrument fluently.When I was 13-14 years old I was taking guitar lessons. The first songs I learned was Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin and Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple. I was doing pretty good but than my guitar instructor's Husband got sick. So she started to cancel my sessions allot due to his illness.So finally I got frustrated ,so I stopped going. I was becoming quite the guitar playing. I was like a 2 year old Jimmy Page, totally awesome as far as 2 year old guitar player standards go. I guess because of that teacher it left a bitter taste in my mouth.So I never went to another teacher to learn and then my desire finally faded away.I wouldn't mind learning any instrument. I think learning an instrument is good for anyone. I would even learn the triangle.
5,) Since the cancer my athletic abilities have diminished greatly.I can't run or jump without some sort of pain. I know that I have had two surgeries in about a 5 month period and I know I need to make sure not to over do it. I really miss the times I was able to run around and chase Zachary and Kaity. Michael and I use to be able to just play catch and play Frisbee ,so because I get easily fatigued I can't do those things now, I could walk and do little things with them but hell, they are young and want to be able to run around with there dad without me needing rest to rest all the time. I know it will be a matter of a few more weeks and I will be able to do some of that again,but how much.I try to keep as much of the home life the same as I can ,they still notice and don't fully understand.I guess that is why I push myself so much all the time.It's hard always telling Zach that Daddy can't do that now. You can tell by looking at his face he is puzzled and doesn't understand.I really can't say why cause he knows that I am sick and it hurts him to hear Sally and I talk about it , so that is why I try to watch what I say around him. So I just want to be able to run around with all my kids like before I was diagnosed.

With all that is going on with the death of Michael Jackson,I have a little tibit of info to tell everyone that most of you don't know. Not that this is a huge deal, but I have met Katherine Jackson, the mother of Michael. I used to work at Sterk's foods in East Chicago in the Harbor on Columbus Drive. She came in the store with another lady wearing this mink coat.I use to follow people around the store allot if I thought they may be shoplifters.So here I am following these two around not knowing anything.As I was looking at them I saw some of my co-workers as well checking them out. I was good I have reinforcements if I need it. I was watching them for close to a half an hour or so. Then the store manager came up to me and said isn't that something.I said yes like they think we are stupid or something. He looked at me in this puzzled look and walked away.Than a lady that worked in the deli came up to me and said this is pretty wild having Michael Jackson's Mother here shopping. I looked at her for what seemed like an hour and I finally said yyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeesssssssss. When she checked out and left the store I hurriedly ran up to her and asked her for her autograph. She was very quite and only said sure when I asked her for an autograph.This happened about twenty years ago and I ended up giving the autograph to my sister Lisa. I don't know if she still has it or not.

I would like to ask everyone if they could pray for the daughter of Cub Pitcher Ryan Dempster. His Daughter Riley who was born on April 1 of this year was diagnosed with DiGeorge Syndrome.She cannot swallow and is secreting allot of fluid. She had surgery to have a Trachea and feeding tube put in. Ryan and his wife Jenny have to clear her throat of fluid since she cannot swallow on her own.So prayers that Riley will get better soon , please Thank you. This is not a Cubs or White Sox thing but,about a little girl who needs our prayers.

Thank you for visiting and God Bless.
