Carousal of life...

I am reminded of the Joni Mitchell song...Painted Ponies (I'm riding on the Carousal of Life...and the painted ponies go up and down)...well, if you are anywhere near my age you know the song!! LOL....I have come to go with the ebb and flow of the visits to the Doctors office every Monday for the blood work....And today was no exception....Blood work showed that the protein level had risen again this week, so they arranged for the blood washing right there and then...no waiting for another day....Then the white count came in...it is so low that he will now be getting a series of booster shots to help his body make more...every day this week....which means in return that his laser surgery had to be cancelled because the Doctor does not feel he is strong enough due to the counts...his resistance is so low that he would not be able to handle any infection ...So I think the ponies are down right now...the music is still playing....and I am still waiting to catch the brass ring!

Hang on to that horse, my friend. Maybe you can do what Mary Poppins did: ride that carousel horse right off the merry-go-round and onto the racetrack, win the derby, and take home the sweepstakes! In any case, I hope enjoy the music.

pretty weird... I've read 3 references to Joni Mitchell songs today. I figure, we've got to come back up eventually... hang in there, you're in my prayers.

I used to sing this song to my daughters as a lullabye when they were small. Up and Down...everyday a pony...a wave...a breath.

beginnings and endings circles inside of circles...fasten your seatbelt and sing along...this life is your song.

blessings for the ride,
Laura
