A glimpse into our lives, our joys...and my battle with cancer!

Our Family Trip to McCall, Idaho
No comparison, Larry...Aana's wins! :)
My family forced me to go away on a little trip to forget about the cancer and have some fun. I was worried about the drive...and how I would feel, but it all turned out okay. We all had a blast and really enjoyed ourselves. We had a gorgeous house overlooking Lake Cascade and just couldn't have asked for nicer accomodations or a better time. We played games, fished, boated, slept, ATE (of course), roasted marshmellows, did fireworks, and more. I participated where I could...and relaxed when I couldn't. They gave me the king suite on the main floor so that I could see everything that was going on from my bed. It was all perfect until the ride home. A couple hours into the drive, I started projectile vomiting...and went downhill until I landed in the ER. Long story...but it all ended up ok. Just a bad end to a wonderful trip. I guess I might have overdone it...but I hear the sounds of my girls giggling and see the smiles on their faces as I lay in bed right now. Those wonderful moment stay emblazoned on my memory and are truly priceless!
(Oh...and I caught 13 fish in ONE hour...and at that same time, Aana caught 9) I felt bad the people unhooking them and baiting my hook. :)
