Today is Tuesday, April 1st

April Fool's Day!!!

No joke tho... it's raining!!! Yahoo!!!  Keep it up!!!

Let's play catch up... Last Wednesday, we finally spoke with the folks at Penn.  Tracy's bone marrow biopsy yesterday will determine his fate... all comes down to whether he's in remission or relapse.  If there are 5% or more leukemia blasts in his bone marrow he will go to Penn.  If not, it's transplant time... BMT.  Good news?  he has choices and Toni, his sister is a BMT match.

So, in the wake of the next phase of the saga ... the Reeds invited us to share their respite in Gualala for the weekend.  We drove up the coast on Thurs. and returned on Sun.  It was a cozy spot on the bluff with a view of the ocean and we totally enjoyed it.  Galleries and shops in Mendocino on Sat. even saw Van Craeynest ring in the same shop that started me on my quest for my wedding ring set so long ago....  the rest of the time we rested, watched the storms and streamed " House of Cards"... saw the entire 1st season again and hooked the Reeds and set us up to watch the 2nd season.

We had just arrived and T took some photos...

It was a great respite!  Mon. we went to Stanford for T's biopsy and  we should have the results by the end of the week....today,  I'm back to work.  Looks like we'll be reviewing offers on my listing on Wed.

Stay tuned.... keep the white light streaming please...


  1. So happy you were able to get away. Love the pics!! You both have been in our prayers daily. Even put T's name in the prayer box at church. Rachie hopes that T liked the picture she drew for him. White light is streaming your way from the Houghtaling house.
    Lots of hugs and kisses Di~

  2. Looks like a very nice weekend. Sending white light for results we want to see! Huggs to you guys!
