The doctor called back and said that he wanted to look at another option called chemoembolism. This is basically a chemotherapy treatment that is injected directly into the tumors in order to kill them. It's supposed to make you much less sick than regular chemotherapy and it's much less invasive than surgery to removed the tumors. He's still going to present my case to the other specialists at the conference because he said there my be some issued since I have a heart murmer and high blood pressure that developed during my pregnancy and haven't gone away. I'm still on hold for everything till the doc gets back from the conference in mid august sometime. I'm in a much better place emotion wise than I was during the last post. I'm okay with having to do something about this.

Valerie came over today and watched Riley while we went to the movies. We went and saw Hellboy 2 and The Dark Knight. I won't ruin anything for anyone. I really enjoyed Hellboy 2. I like it much better than the first one and truly enjoyed the entire movie which was full of action and comedy. I'll definately see that one again.

The Dark Knight was a little different. I did enjoy the movie but it is not a movie for children. It did portray the darknest of the batman comics to the extreme. It showed the joker as the psychotic killer that he is but left out his outward charm. I won't be seeing this one again.

I'm currently reading The Chase Brother series by Lauren Dane. I love this series. This writer has found a perfect way to mix in a more erotic slant to wonderful love stories with strong women and men that find ways to be together in partnerships. I just finished the 4th book in the series, Making Chase. This was a wonderful story that showed strong families are made from many different things. It melded the heroine's strong family that emerged from an alcoholic father with the hero's family that was strong due to the love and support of a strong parental unit. Both the man and the woman were strong members of their family and I love the way she brouht the couple together. This is considered erotic romance. I have found that there are several writers of erotic romance that I absolutely love. Yes, they have the very steamy sex scenes with words that I wouldn't want my child saying. They also have some incredibly talented writers that can weave an engaging tale that keeps you turning the page just to see what's going to happen next.

I love to read. I've taken some flack about some of the books that I read but it's not going to stop me from reading them. I read all books. I have favorite authors in scifi, fantasy, romance, comedy, suspense, horror, childrens, young adult and even non-fiction. There are incredible authors and stories in all genres of books. I read because I enjoy diving into a book that can transport me to a world created by my imagination using the authors guidance. I love movies too but for me movies are a way of mindless entertainment. I don't have to image what a movie is trying to show me cause it's there on the screen. I find myself reading more and more and escaping into my own mind instead of staring at the TV. I do go through periods where I don't pick up a book for months though and during that time I find myself watching TV while I stitch. I can't remember the last time that I sat down to just watch TV. I'm always doing something else like stitching or playing a video game or computer game or playing with baby while the TV is on. When I sit down to read though, I read. Reading is my time. Justin takes care of the baby and I let my mind go to a world of the author's making while my body relaxes from the day.
