Sherryl saw her doctor last week and learned she is still anemic. She was told there is nothing for her to do to increase her red blood cell count and that chemotherapy medications will be adjusted for this reason. Overall, she feels great.
Sherryl has commented lately how much she is enjoying "living a very simple life." Family and friends, work and play. There is uncomplicated routine and she loves it.
She had another fun weekend doing the things she loves most: spending time with family and friends of all ages. She rested on Friday, and on Saturday she had a massage, took Haley to her gymnastics class, had lunch with Austin, Haley, and Arleen, then made lollipop trees with Austin and Haley.
Always crafting frugally, Sherryl took the children to buy lollipops and Styrofoam cones. Simple, fast, inexpensive, and fun, creating those trees was the activity for Saturday afternoon. Another slumber party at RaRa's house for Austin, Haley, and Annie, and then home they went on Sunday with their parents.
The finished lollipop trees are absolutely adorable. As for the time RaRa, Austin, and Haley had together, a picture paints a thousand words. But a thousand words may be too many when you're loving the simple life. These pictures seem to say it all.
