My First Drink

Today was a busy day -- I went to the beach and then to Ron and Judy's for dinner and fireworks. We brought my pink champagne for fun, I thought I was ready to have a drink, but after a few sips, I knew I wasn't. I got buzzed off just a few sips and then got a stomach ache, and now I'm feeling dehydrated and tired - and drinking lots of water :) Ahh well, hopefully I'll be able to have a couple drinks at chemopalooza, and maybe when Julia and Lynda come visit in a few weeks.

I've been watching Michael Moore's new movie, SICKO - my internet is slow here, so I've tried a few times, but it's online and totally free, so feel free to check it out - in fact, I don't even think it's out in theatres yet. It makes me a bit nervous though - for those who don't know, it's about the US health care industry and how fucked up it is - that's the jist, I've only watched about 20 minutes so far. But it makes me nervous because I still haven't gotten an invoice from my insurance for ANY of my chemo, surgeries, or anything. Pretty crazy!

Anywho, I'm going to get back to watching the video. I'll post some firework pictures soon.

Hey Kelly,

I'm sorry you couldn't have much more than a sip. I'm sure before you know it you will be able to celebrate with a glass of champagne.

My husband and I really want to see SICKO. I didn't realize we could watch it online. Did you have any sort of co-pays for your chemo treatments? I can't believe how much we pay for insurance each month....it sucks.
