My father had called me earlier today to tell me that he had just awakened from a major knee surgery. The surgery itself was a success and I was happy for him that he finally got his second knee fixed all in one year. It will be a hard road ahead for his recovery, but once that part is over it just gets better. We talked for a little while as I updated him on my progress with my health. I am still getting over a very serious cold actually both me and my hubby are still battling this cold.
I feel I initially got this cold from a young family who was standing directly behind me at the Safeway across the street. This particular Safeway is pretty disease ridden as I remember catching most of my colds here. My husband doesn't even want me to shop there anymore. I may just head his advice. Getting a cold usually happens while waiting in line; someone sick will almost always get behind me and for me, I really have to be very careful when getting in line in case someone in front of me might be sneezing or hacking. My immune system is low considering being on chemotherapy treatments.
Well a very sick looking family got behind me at the store nearly 2 weeks ago. The mother and her 2 children were both coughing like crazy. They should not have been shopping and spreading the cold to everyone throughout the store. The children were coughing opening behind me (without covering their mouths)and I even think I got spit on just a little bit. I know for sure this is how I got sick anyway to get back to talking with my father. He was worried about my low blood counts and getting extremely sick or catching pneumonia. Yes, its still a concern as it takes me about 10 times longer than most to get over a cold. I am feeling better, but still kind of coughing as I get over this cold.
I told my father that we were indeed getting ready to go to a San Jose Shark's game. He was very happy to see that I keep on living no matter what. My husband and I are always having fun together.
My father and I reminisced about the game that we had gone to all together back in October 2006 (just 2 years ago). We sat in the second tier, it was an exciting game only the Sharks had lost. It was still fun to go and to spend quality time together creating those memories.
Yesterday, my husband and I were given free tickets to go see the San Jose Sharks first home game opener (I think I am pronouncing this right). A close friend of my husband's gave up the two tickets so that my husband and I could get out to enjoy the game; to get out together and to have a nice romantic date.
There was a really cool street party going on just before the game which we had much fun walking around and people watching. I loved seeing all the teal colors as it reminded me of the Ovarian Cancer Ribbon. I think I will write someone about funding this #1 Gynocologist White Ghost of a killer. It certainly is worth the effort.
My husband and I walked around looking for the perfect Christmas cards to send home to our family. This one looks like a winner. We got our photo taken by a very nice Firefighter who shot this photo in front of the actual Shark Firetruck. There were several really cool painted Shark vehicles. We try to get a few good pictures together each year to send to our families at Christmas time to let them know that we continue to have fun together no matter what.
Right before the game, the theatrics were amazing in that they had these giant projectors, jumbo trons which started out with this giant thunderstorm over the ocean, ice being created and thunder striking the water, displaying what looked like sharks swimming just below the ice. I got somewhat of good photo here. You can see the HD display of water and Sharks swimming around madly. The only thing that bummed me out was that they forgot to lower the big Shark Head. It sat up above un-utilized. Maybe it was intentional but it still a great show before the game. It really got the whole crowd energized as well as the team. My husband and I were bad in that we fell temptation to popcorn and I had my usual justification as only living once and to enjoy right now and right then I wanted popcorn. I didn't eat too much, but hopefully I won't have to suffer too much over the next couple of day.
The San Jose Sharks played a very flawless game entertaining game; I think they only got 1 penalty through out the game but did get a few Power Play goals. We were hoping for a Hat Trick for Jonathan Cheechoo, but we were not disappointed with this game at all. I was amazed at their skill. The Sharks beat the Anaheim Ducks 4-1.
