    Well Jeff passed his DOT physical for another year. He also cut a section of my fence out, so we could have the yard dug up for a water leak. He's back out on the road now.

    That's good news about Jeff. He might just beat this thing!

    It's not beatable. It's that daily chemo pill doing it.

    How's you daughter doing?

    She still has the infusions every three months or so. She gets tired and frequently has to have iron infusions along with the chemo infusions.

    It's your old age memory acting up. Genine has cancer - a slow-growing kind of bone marrow cancer.

    No, the infusions aren't the kind that 'cure' the cancer. I'm not really familiar with the ins and outs of her disease, but what I get from it is they're adopting a wait and see attitude and just giving her infusions to keep it under control (or something like that). Maybe it's something like Jeff's and not curable. I don't really know. She gets along pretty good, and is as active as she ever was. The only thing is she gets tired easily.

    And @maggie18fan - I didn't mean for my response to sound so sharp. We talked about Genine's cancer when I first found out about it, I think it was last year or the year before. You had something going on in your life at the time, and probably just lost our conversation because of your troubles at the time.

    Frankly, I didn't think it was 'sharp'. Due to all the drug and physical abuse done to my brain I have been diagnosed with severe short term memory loss. Because of the kill switch on my car's ignition, there are times (even tho it's 30 yrs old)I have forgotten how to start my car. So a short reminder always helps me to remember...

    It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. It's snowing and my daughter is in labor.

    She had a boy a little over two years ago and now a baby girl. My other daughter had a boy almost a year ago.
