Resurgam, you're reminding me in your recent posts that I really need to start some sewing again! (Fleece of course, haha) I miss it!! It's certainly the season. 
I just cleaned up the dining room table, so clearly it's time to drag my sewing stuff all over it ;)

Mum is doing better this morning. She had a rough night and afternoon yesterday with the pain, and I felt bad leaving her last night :(
It seems to be much more under control today tho, and she really notices how much better she feels. 
She's been sitting up in her chair all morning, and even took a walk around the ICU. 
Just waiting until a bed in the regular ward opens up and then she'll be moved out.

Mum is going to have lung surgery Wed morning, then another (I assume on the other side) on the 15th. She'll hopefully be out of the hospital by the 20th. They're going to go and try to resect out all the lung mets. We're all very hopeful as surgical resection has worked well for her before (the liver surgery)
She and Dad went to Portland today for kind of initial appt with the surgeon, and we were all figuring that what with getting insurance approval etc this wouldn't go forward till like next week. So things moved faster than we were expecting!
I decided to drive up, I'm not sure how long I'll be able to stay up there, hopefully the whole time. If work gets antsy I guess I'll have to play it by ear. I'll be bringing my laptop and working remotely, so hopefully the hospital (OHSU) has good wireless!
argh, OK, I really gotta pack. I'm going to go into work till about noon tomorrow, then just leave from there, and head up the I5. I'll find a place to crash overnight probably in Eugene, then get up early to make it into Portland Wednesday morning. Mum is scheduled to start the surgery process at 8am.

I fly up to Oregon tomorrow at 12:49pm. No seat assigned, cause it's the usual oversell, so I plan to get to the airport nice and early and will hope for the best. Cause the worst is that all the other flights (and there are not many to Redmond/Bend) that day are booked out, so it would be a flight for the next day.

Actually, the worst is that Katy and Jack are coming out as well (well, of course that's not bad!) we're actually going to be together on that same flight from SFO to Redmond, however I'm really worried that her flight from BOS to SFO will be stuffed up. I'd thought that all this flying mess would be figured out by now, but it's clearly not. At least it shouldn't be a weather thing.

It would be ironic if her plane is delayed, and that's how I get my seat on the plane...

went into the city early today to watch my favourite almost 10 yr old at her skating competition. She came in first in her group, yay!

After that, I meandered around and did some shopping. It was a beautiful day up in the city. Got a few shirts and some makeup. It was nice to just wander around on my own, hadn't done that in ages.

ok, now off to convince Chris we need Chinese for tea. Green beans, mmmm.

Had some grey-ish beige soup today. Potato-leek. Tasted as appetising as it looked. I bought two packs, think I'll be ditching the other one.

heading out to Sacto this weekend for Worshipping the Beast, woo! The Burgundy Topz city rally, which I haven't been to before, I've only been to their camping rally (April). Will be setting up the trailer for the first time for a two bike set up (and of course that would be my wonderful Chris doing that!) and taking the Bajaj for it's first rally! With Sacto being nice and flat, I think it will be a good start. My clubmate Erin is coming with me. The weather sounds like it will be spectacular, so I can't wait! One last rally before the weather turns ;)

I'm in Ashland, woo!
Later today I will be in Portland, WOO! Staying over tonight with susanstars   and Pearl, WOO WOO!!

Then tomorrow I will be in Seattle, for the Fremont Fair.

So happy to have a little vacation.
Wish Chris could have come with, he's too slammed with work. He finished being a juror last Thursday. Murder trial, ugh. Poor thing said he had a nightmare about it the other night.

Hmm, I always seem to be posting depressing things lately. I'll have to do a happier post later...
