* Mom had some good news from her CT scan earlier this week. Tumor, on her pancreas, has shrunk significantly. My brother Joel's take was that even the doctors were surprised at how much the radiation shrunk the damn thing. I'd like to think that the earlier "bring down the herd" chemo helped set this up to happen with this completed chemo / radiation protocol. So, some up news for a change. Mom will likely have surgery in the later part of May.
* Unusual pattern being seen on some modeling for early May. Big cut-off low could bring freezing temps to the Carolina's around May 3rd to May 9th. Can't even begin to tell you how devastating a freeze (over several nights), at this time of year, would be for every sort of growing plant. If the Spring nectar flow goes south, I'll have bees in trouble. Here's hoping it doesn't verify; but color me leaning worried right now.
