Swimming in the pink

This whole post was supposed to be about Peyton’s surgery.  Her port was scheduled to come out and I had planned to spend an anxious night, dreading and worrying about all the possibilities.

But the surgery was postponed because Peyton developed pink eye.

Yeah. Pink eye.  We can get through cancer and chemotherapy, radiation and infections…pink eye brings us to a stand still.

So, surgery has been put off until January, but it will happen soon.


I’m going on SecondHand Radio tonight with my new bloggy pal Karl Erikson for…..something….I’m not entirely sure what we’ll be talking about.  I can tell you this, with Karl, it’s sure to be pretty darn funny.

So, check us out tonight at 10 PM EST. You can listen in to our special brand of chaos and add to it by calling in and asking questions or heckling us madly.

    That is a bummer on both counts (pink eye and delay of the surgery). Hoping for a quick recovery on the pink eye.

    Sorry to hear about the surgery being postponed. I know it would have been a wonderful holiday present. On the plus side, that Karl guy is HYSTERICAL!
