I’ve been taking trips to Connecticut every other week recently while my Mom battles Breast Cancer. Her treatment requires trips to the nearby town of Willimantic for chemo-therapy. Once she is settled into her chair and hooked up to her drip I usually go out to get something to eat and watch a few birds. Until recently I just counted the birds in the parking lot of the hospital and at the nearby shopping center where there are a couple of fast food restaurants, but on this particular day in early February, I decided to drive around town a bit to see what I could see. I was never more than a mile or two away from the hospital in case I was needed, but it was nice to give my brain and my emotions a break. I found a little park down in the center of town in what is known at the Historic District. I pulled into an abandoned parking lot across the street from a school and a church and amused myself counting birds.
Meanwhile, the Turkey Vultures take to the sky!

On a Personal Note: Mom is doing relatively well with her chemo treatments. While she has had a mild allergic reaction to the drug that last 2 times, she only has one more chemo treatment to go and then she is done with it! However, if her White Blood Cell count is too low, she will not be able to get her chemo on schedule and it will have to be postponed, so please pray that her WBC comes up! Then, she will get a month off before radiation begins. Mom is strong and her spirits are bright. The good news is that the doctor told us that if she was not this strong she never would have recommended this treatment for a woman her age, so we are encouraged by this.
