It had been a dream of Lisa's to get her drivers licence, well I guess dreams do come true! Yesterday, after much studying and practice, Lisa, accompanied by Gail and Connor ventured out to the DMV on Lancaster. I asked her why she wasn't going to take her test in Dallas or some place smaller and quieter than Lancaster and she insisted that she knew Lancaster better and if she was going to get her licence she would need to be able to able to drive on Lancaster!
She said she was nervous at first, but things went really well so her nerves quieted down....and Lisa passed with a 100%! So she got her licence, that's all she wanted to do, just accomplish that. Gail said that now she couldn't care less about actually driving!
Dream #2... Lisa is headed right now to Disneyland! Last year Gail won a trip to Calf. through her work. So this morning the family, including grandparents and some siblings, headed south to see Mickey! Lisa had no idea about this until Monday when Gail's co-worker, dress in a Tinker Bell costume, announced it to Lisa! She was soooo excited! They will stay with Gail's sister and play at Disneyland!
Because Lisa has been off chemo for several weeks, she is feeling pretty good. Her back is starting to bother her more, and that is probably from one of the larger tumors pressing against it. She was not able to start chemo on sched. last time because her counts were so low, so they had to put it off until after this trip. It is not good to go so long in between chemo sessions, but the doctors felt is was so important that Lisa enjoy this trip to CA with her family they decided to wait. She will start chemo on the 25th.
