april 2009

Hello! Cathy here. Just wanted to give you all a bit of an update.
Ellen continues to do well. She had an MRI last week with results showing improvement in the area where the tumor was.
The little cancer bastards are running like Hell! The two week schedule of chemo is difficult on her, fatigue, nausea and
loss of appetite seem to be the worst. She's getting a little skinny, but still looks pretty good to me.......

We are going to Louisiana the end of this month, me to do Jazzfest, Ellen for a visit with family in Lafayette. I am working
more in the studio, mostly to stay out of trouble, but I have been enjoying the process of creating again. I'm looking forward to seeing friends, selling art and eating White Chocolate Bread Pudding from my favorite vendor at the Fest.

Ellen is looking forward to spending time with family. We are looking at the possibility of moving to Lafayette during the
summer and so will be exploring the area for a place to live during this visit. I'd like a house with extra studio space and a large swimming pool, but so far I haven't been promised anything yet......I'll keep you all posted.

I want to thank everyone for continuing to call, or send cards, or send loving thoughts our way. You really have no idea
how much it helps, how much it keeps both of us in a positive place and how much we appreciate it. Our friends have
carried us when things have been the hardest and neither of us will ever forget that.

Till next time.
