The women's basketball tournament is very interesting these past few days. Baylor is going to the Final Four, where UConn will play them in the FF, if they get past FSU tonight. I don't have much doubt about that, but I don't want to ruin mojo here.

I haven't been feeling too good since the chemo...actually, I haven't felt good for a long time. I guess that's the price you pay to get rid of cancer...and if me not feeling well means that the cancer is getting wiped out...so be it.

I sleep an awful lot. I sleep until one or two in the afternoon, get up for a couple of hours, go back up and nap and then come down for supper. Then back up to bed again. In between naps, I drag around, exhausted.

I make myself do things, like hike up to get the mail, feed the birds, etc. After those tasks I feel so wiped out....no strength.

Two more chemo treatments to go. Sandy told me that she read on the ovarian cancer message board that a lot of people stop the treatments when they get to this point. I can see why they do, especially if they have a life to live....like go to work, take care of kids or others. I am so fortunate that I have no obligations like that....I have Sandy to help me.

I'm going to stick it out to the end. I may end up sleeping 24 hours a day, but I think that this is the best thing to do.

Water water water....Jean and Frank just called, they have four inches in their basement. Sandy is going down to help, but we don't have a pump to bring, she'll bring the wet vac..that's the best we can do. They used to come help us when the water would come in, now it's "our" turn to help them. Jean says they've already lost the freezer and they are hoping the furnace motor is up high enough.

Carol says they have a "huge sink hole" in their front yard and water in their basement for the first time ever. We have some small areas where the basement floor is "weeping" as the water has no where else to go. Our back yard is like a series of mini ponds.

We're lucky it isn't worse in our basement.

Tonight the Huskies play FSU. They had some trouble with them (minor) back in Decemeber. I'm sure that Geno had them watching the UT game and the Stanford game to show the team that you can't get complacent. I don't worry about that with this team. They are on a mission.


Nighty night! Stay dry!
