Janet B Posted March 28, 2013 Share Posted March 28, 2013 Hi everyone! It is a grey yucky day here again. One day of sun just wasn't enough!! I have to head out now and battle the grocery store so I can start cooking for the crowd arriving tomorrow. I also have to stop at the bank, the train station (to buy my ticket for my first Boston appointment) and Marshall's ( to buy a small rolling suitcase for all these Boston excursions). then home again to unpack the groceries and off to Maundy Thursday service. I am exhausted just thinking about it. I would rather just stay home and play with my bird! Eric, again, I am so sorry about the loss of your friend. I am sure you did a wonderful job with your eulogy. I have already planned out my memorial. I want it to be quite the party!! Lillian, I have been following your recovery on Face book. I am so glad you are starting to feel better. So, this Boston Clinical trial. Right now it is in the confusing stage, appointment making and then appointment changing and scheduling calling, research nurses calling, Drs calling! I think once I get started it will calm down and get into a routine! Right now I have to go to Boston on Monday just to sign the consent. (I will hitch a ride there on Easter evening with my kids and take the train back). Then I have to go back later in the month for Pre trial testing. Then I go back the following week for three days. The week after that for one day, the week after that for three days and then every other week for 5 months. phew! Everything has to be done there - the drug itself is Afatanib , a pill, that I take three days every two weeks. The bad part is, depending on scheduling, I may not be able to go to Hope Summit. I will know more on Monday, hopefully. My bird is getting a little tamer. He will eat out of my hand, but very skittishly! he does get mad however if I am not sitting right next to his cage and he squawks as loud as he can to let me know! I can't wait for him to be calm enough to come out of his cage and hang out with me. Well, I better get to the stores before it gets later, not looking forward to it one bit!! Have a wonderful day everyone - Janet Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
