I walked into Dr.Fretz's office and heard a little voice yelling from afar, "Here I come! Am I too late???" As I am trying to figure out this "strangeness", Marcia and Kay (office people but better than that....friends) and another office person are lining up. In runs Nurse Toni. She says:

"I can't believe it's already time
for Jill to come in with her rhyme.
I hope she has good luck;
If not it will really suck!"

After Dr. Fretz did our initial discussion (we don't discuss bladder cancer...we analyse  his daughters' school situations which I love to do) I told him that he better not find any new tumors or he would mess up my poem. He did a good job!

Dr. Fretz says, "Again tumor free!
Great news after month number 3.
Your bladder looks great!
You have a clean slate!"
Reporting with heart full of glee!!!

If  I can go another 3 months and not have any new tumors.....I get to change to every 6 months for check-ups. Terrific!

Music! Music! Music!

Alexis LOVES music! She signs  and says the word "music" or "piano" every chance she gets. She knows a few  words to songs and gets them rhythmically correct. What a girl!!! You may not know what the word is that she says but, by golly, WE sure know!

"Do you want to hear 'If you're happy and you know it'?"

"Did you like it? What shall I play now?"

"I will play...ABC.  It is soooo pretty."

"I will play a piece by Craig Courtney. My JoJo will love it!"

"Very difficult...very difficult but beautiful."

"Now I will show you my baby...oh...where is she?"

"I love her new shoes. (This is Marley's doll. She is sharing with me. Thank you Marley.)"

"I love this baby!"

"Will this shoe fit on my foot?"
