She is having trouble being silent!!

The PET Scan went smoothly today, we were in and out within 2 hours.  Mom's technician at the Imaging Center, Cyndi - was a Nascar fan!  It's amazing how many people out there are #24 Car fans, Mom has a way of meeting them all :) 

As her throat heals from the biopsy, she is forgetting about the doctors orders to remain on "voice rest".  We find ourselves entering into conversations with Mom piping up with her own comments ...... and after a few minutes ...... it's hey!!!  you are supposed to be staying quiet! ..... and we all laugh!

There is a Thursday night NFL game on tonight so maybe we can get her to sit quietly in front of the TV.  It's encouraging that she feels well enough that she thinks she can be disobedient!

Mom was a co-winner last week in her football pool, let's hope she does well again this weekend.

No events on the schedule for tomorrow.  She and Margaret hope to take a relaxing drive up valley to view the beautiful Fall colors in the vineyards.


  1. Hi Grandma,
    I'm not surprised you are talking had a hard time following "voice rest" last night on Skype. :)

    Love you,
