Mom's platelets were too low again. Chemo treatment was pushed back another week. That means it will be five weeks since the last treatment. I asked the oncology nurse if there was anything that could be done, and she said if they got low enough, they would transfuse her with platelets. But, who knows how low they have to go, and according to my nurse practitioner, Mom is in danger of catching anything she comes in contact with. And that would not be pretty.

Nurse practitioner's premature twin grandsons are stable. That is great news. It was very scary for a few days.

Spent the last two days doing a bit of house work, reading, leaf sweeping, and wrapping OCC gifts for tomorrow's "ingathering" at church. If you aren't familiar with Operation Christmas Child, go here and read up on a wonderful and easy way to reach children for Christ. I love shopping for the kids.

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. Friday at my home, my bunch and my in-laws will all "Gather together to ask the Lord's blessing." We decided on ham as we pretty much prefer it to turkey. Candied sweet potatoes, hash brown casserole, banana pudding and other delicacies will be devoured.
