Mom made her standard 6 week trip to Trinity on Monday to have them check her port and attempt to flush it out. No real difference from the last time - the port is still letting fluid through but there isn't much of a return, so the nurses will just keep an eye on it for the next time. Mom has her labs scheduled for April 22 and then we will visit with Dr. Porubcin on the 29th for an update.
Mom and I are going to make a trip back to Ransom next Sunday. Cousin Alaina is "celebrating" her 50th birthday - and the word celebrating is a loose definition as I don't think she wanted a big to-do... but you know how those AUNTS are. Mom and the rest of her sisters want to celebrate us children getting older, so celebrate Alaina's birthday we will do.
So the plan is to go to the Ransom church first thing for the Sunday service (9:30 a.m.), and then head to Applebee's in Ottawa for lunch. If that doesn't scream "Happy 50th Birthday" I don't know what does. Pictures to follow.
