The Stacey Report

May 14: Stacey’s Birthday!

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on May 14, 2006

Also Mother’s Day, of course. The Stacey Family is celebrating with Dim Sum in Chinatown (yum!). The Bancroft sisters are celebrating with a trip to The Fabric Place to buy the makings of Stacey’s Chemo Cape. This is a request from Stacey, a soft cloak, modest black on the outside but fabulous purple on the inside, easy to throw around shoulders or over feet during chemo.

Don’t tell, but the cloak is actually a disguise. No one will know that it is really a Superhero cape for Super Stacey, Conqueress of Cancer! Mighty she stands, wielding the Bat of Justice, as scofflaw cells flee in terror!

(There really is a bat of justice, apparently; she has it on her desk to keep wayward co-workers in line.)

Also, there have been some corrections from Herself: she does not always have to go to bed at 8:30, that has only been a few nights and usually right after a hormone treatment. The arm is bothersome, but it is getting better. I myself noticed that while she still has a bit of trouble with stairs, she is walking almost normally; she says that her hip and back are better every day.

Also the haircut was a huge success: it is short but not as short as the buzz cut from high school, and we now have some very lovely 10 to 13 inch ponytails to send to Locks of Love. Thanks, Jackie!

    I just cannot figure out what a scofflaw cell is. Explanation please!

    scoff·law (skoflô, skôf-)
    One who habitually violates the law or fails to answer court summonses.

    scofflaw cell: a cell that does not follow the rules.

    Ha! Wasn’t in my dictionary.

    So smart.

    Too smart.
