Can't believe how the leaves are changing already! It seems like it's literally happening overnight. I also want to remind everyone that on Friday, we have Bills alumni player Conrad Dobler on the show..(new book) AND a representative from Holiday Vacations to talk about the upcoming trip to Paris in April. We already have over 10 people signed up to go! We have meetings planned for anyone who is interested on October 11 and 12th at two local hotels. E-Mail me, call, or call Holiday Vacations toll free (1-800-826-2266) for locations. Considering it's still only September..this trip is filling up fast! Don't miss out, it's going to be spectacular!
Starting to decorate a bit for autumn at home and you'll notice the AM BUFFALO set beginning to change as well. The one thing I can't get used to are the days getting a little shorter already! Bernie (our dog) is starting to miss those late walks--it's too dark!
What does everyone think of Trent Edwards playing for Jacksonville? --I say "start him!" it's our best chance of victory! ..Speaking of the bills, they honor Booker Edgerson at halftime this weekend..his name goes up on the wall. We hope to have him as a guest on Monday along with author and sports columnist Sal Maiorana ..so stay tuned...ME
Things will be busy for me when we return too. Twelve hours after we land, I report to Millard Fillmore Suburban for a medi-port implant. That will allow my chemotherapy to be administered directly without additional I.V.'s. From there I head to my doctor's office for my first dose. Waiting for me there will be photojournalist Ed Reilly or our Chief Photographer Scott McDowell. We've decided to shoot that experience so everyone will know what it's like. So many people have been through this already, and unfortunately, many more will come after me. But it is an important part of treatment that prevents cancer from coming back. It is so heartwarming to hear from 10, 20 and 30 year survivors! I've kept all your cards and keep them in a special place!
So after chemo, I should be back on the sofa at AM Buffalo on Monday, April 18th. Thank goodness for Jon Summers who so ably fills in AND is out everyday shooting all the stories that appear on the show.
Wish me luck blogging from France..sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't ! Au revoir!
I'm responding as fast as possible to all my e-mails and everything sent by children will be cherished forever! I didn't think you could feel this good and still be ill!
But I am the most overwhelmed by the good news I received by Windsong Radiology yesterday. Their patient coordinator called me personally to tell me that their phones have been ringing off the hook with ladies looking for the next mammo appointment! She says they are positively jamming over there and have been since Monday. You girls rock! But I already knew that! xxxme
