Me in the Spotlight!!!

I went to Mayo Clinic this morning as usual to get my chemo. I was in "my room" minding my own business, when one of the doctors came in. (Can you tell how often I am there? I have my own room. he he he)
 Anyhow,  I looked up from my "Monk" episode and set down my scrapbooking project. Dr. Norfelt, who is in charge of the experimental study that I am in wanted me to do an interview with chanel 12 News. I had already recieved a call from an ASU student that wanted to interview me for his documentary about the "drug shortage". Truthfully though, I don't know much about the drug shortage, so I declined.  But today they promised to not ask too many questions that don't really concern me and they promised to do the interview before my Benadryl, which makes me loopy and incoherent, so I took a chance and did it. It was actually pretty fun. I always think it is funny though that they interview you for an hour or so, and then only use a line or two. I guess that is why they call it "editing".  
 Oh well, for good or bad, here it is......

p.s. thank you so much Heather Wilson for finding the link.

Happy Birthday Christa! I remember when Grandma Wiemer called from Iowa to say Christa Jolene Wiemer had arrived on September 30, 1978...I had just turned 16 and had my drivers license and asked if I could drive out to see you. The answer from Grandpa Wiemer was a big "No"! I hope this 33rd Birthday is the best one ever!!! Love, Uncle Mike
