April 29, 2013

Today is Casey's last day of freedom before he gets admitted into the hospital and hooked up to a 24/7 IV.  Saturday we went to La Porte to a festival.  There were carnival rides, live music, food and drink stands, and a barbecue cook off all on the beach of Trinity Bay.  The people who were entered into the cook off had real elaborate set-ups.  They would have a blast at the pumpkin chunkin in Delaware.  We met some really nice people who had a set-up for the cook off and they recommended we go see Kemah boardwalk.  We went to Kemah and had a wonderful time.  We went to a cafe on the water and had a snack while watching the boats go by.  We left Kemah and went to Charlie and Melissa's house and had dinner with them, and their 7 year old son Conner.  They are so welcoming.  Conner has been working on dinner menus for when Casey comes to stay. 
Yesterday Casey had to be at the hospital at 8:30 am for some lab work.  His labs came back ok so we were able to leave before noon.  It was a nice day, so Casey and I walked to and from the hospital.  He spent the rest of the day getting caught up on meet entries and writing practices.  We drove around downtown Houston and went to Joe's Crab Shack and had a nice dinner.
Today we drove to Galveston and went to the beach.  We sat on the sea wall and put our feet in the water and had lunch overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.  The water was really warm.  We are back at the hotel.  Casey is starting to get real tired.  He is not sure if it is the cancer or the medication.
Tomorrow Casey is scheduled for 7:30 am at the hospital.  It's been really nice spending this time with him.  We have had a mini vacation interrupted by doctor visits.
