This just in...

Polar Bear Update:
So planning a wedding in 2 weeks is turning out to be somewhat chaotic. Therefore, it is with great sadness that we need to postpone the Polar Bear Plunge... it was planned to celebrate Spring's arrival. We are now looking to reschedule it for late April or early May...  and the weather will also be more tolerable for our plunge into the cold Atlantic. BRRRR. Sorry for any inconvenience.

And for the record, I was ready:
look at my hat :o)
And to the peanut gallery, I know Polar Bears don't hibernate. Lol.

                 Medical Update:
Nursing Progress Report:
Pt received zofran and decadron premeds this afternoon. Abraxane 125mg/m2 & Gemcitabine 1000mg/m2 given as indicated. Pt experienced some dookie for the remainder of the day, but otherwise fine :o) No nausea or vomiting. Pt with a good appetite & actually gaining weight. Noooooooo! Need to fit in my wedding dress :o). Neulasta tomorrow. The end.

P.S.  This is my new required PORT position for lab draws. :o)

Wedding Update:

Wedding dress & tuxdeo: check
Bridesmaid & junior bridesmaid dresses: check
Cake: yummy cake testing tomorrow at Potito's Bakery
Florist: meeting tomorrow with Flowers & Company
Photography: pending
But there's so much more on my checklist!

And lots more to do tomorrow. So on that note... good night, everyone.
lots of love... little lisa lollipop

P.S. Thank you to my secret admirer that left the pretty flowers & lollipops on my door step. :o)


  1. Yeah! Glad the polar bear plunge is postponed as I was working that day. i want to do this with you!

  2. I'm glad it's postponed too since I couldn't have gotten off of work on the 20th! I definitely want to come...sounds like an awesome time - Keep me posted on the new date! (:

  3. What is a dookie, for the nonmedical readership? So glad that I might still be able to make the Polar Bear Plunge!

  4. Lol. Not a medical term, but a slang one for poop.

  5. I understand the whole preparing a wedding in a short amount of time. My dear daughter Rachel gave me approximately 6 weeks to get her wedding together. Continued thoughts and prayers to you.
    Hugs, Tammy Alba.

  6. PS~ I LOVE the polar bear hat. TA

  7. Let me know when you do the plunge, Mike and I want to be there to join you!
