Sympathy to Wayne and Betty McCutcheon in the death of her grandson last week.

Last week was not a good week for my last chemotherapy. I was very sick the entire time.

John and Theshia Crow came over on Saturday to be with me for a couple of hours. My daughters do not think I should be alone and try to keep 24-hour care for me. A few days ago, I took another fall which makes four times I have fallen lately. I have been told that in a couple of months, I will be doing fine. I can't wait. For the last two weeks, I have had a happy Mother's Day. My kids have come over at different times to see me for it.

Maxine and Randy Rogers visited her brother Steve Eames last week. Steve came over to see me last week and brought me a bouquet of his mother's flowers.
