Ed Update January

Discussion group at The Bishop's Lodge, January 16.

Ed had his check-up and chemotherapy as scheduled this past Wednesday, January 24. He is doing well – no change in his condition according to the doctor and his reports. This is good news. So far, the effects of Wednesday’s chemo have not hit him – that is good, too. The past couple of times he has felt terrible from Friday afternoon through the Saturday following Wednesday chemo.

We survived our New Year’s weekend with no power for two days, snow piled high and branches down everywhere. Lights came on just after sunset on New Year’s Eve. However, the yard is still full of branches, and there are still snow piles in the shade. We spent the nights of January 16-17 in Santa Fe, where we had a wonderful time meeting friends for delicious meals and an animated discussion of Willa Cather’s “Death Comes for the Archbishop” at The Bishop’s Lodge, the former home of Bishop Lamy (the model for the book’s Bishop Latour). I hope to post a few pictures on Flickr:

Monday this week the annual ALA children’s book awards were announced – always an exciting occasion, even though this year I was not directly involved. On Tuesday we attended the Metropolitan Opera’s webcast of “The Magic Flute” at the Starport theater at Cottonwood Mall (to be broadcast on PBS stations this Sunday at 1 pm).

We’re looking forward to a visit from Craig Werner at the end of next week, and a trip to Ixtapan, Mexico from February 23-March 3, where we will meet Gloria and Herb Thompson from Pennsylvania, whom we have not seen for many years.
