Moving Day

We spent the weekend at the boat and moved to another marina. We got notice last week that our piers will be demolished and we have until the end of August to find another home for Different Drummer. Luckily we knew that was coming so we had already made arrangements and we moved on Saturday since we had plenty of friends to help. We really like our new home - Watergate Yachting Center - and everyone is very friendly. We hated to break up our community at our old marina, we have been there almost 3 years and made so many great friends. I know that we will keep in touch with everyone, but it's just not the same as driving up on Friday afternoon and everyone is just there.

Troy is feeling pretty lousy these days. It's difficult to get him to eat anything. I try to get him to eat, but food just has no appeal to him. He told me today that the last time he weighed this amount was high school. The doctor tells us, and our own research confirms, that the chemo that he received in the hospital (cisplatin - which is a form of platinum, and epirubicin) are the ones that are making him feel so bad. The 5FU that he is receiving now shouldn't make him sick. We are hoping that he will start feeling better in the next day or so.

If Troy feels up to it we are planning to sail to Double Bayou next weekend. It's a full moon and a meteor shower so we may try to sail over on Friday night. We'll see how things go this week.

Well - if it's not one thing it's another. As I am sitting here typing our TV just had some kind of freak out and it won't come back on. It made really loud screeching sound and died. Oh well - I think it's bed time anyway.

Change is inevitable - except from a vending machine. ~Robert C. Gallagher
