Blog #275, Chemo Eve, Family Photo
You know how I dislike coming up with a title, so I've given you a few to choose from. Call it whatever you wish, the words are what count anyway.
We had a wonderful Easter yesterday. Starting with 8:30am church service at Camano Chapel (all 5 of us went together), then Easter dinner and Darlena's birthday at Jeff & Dawn's house, then back home for a relaxing evening, the day was perfect. This photo isn't great, but you get the idea....we clean up pretty well.
Last year at this time I was anticipating a doctor's appointment with a specialist regarding my pneumonia that wouldn't clear up. I was attending mom's weekend at WSU, then went to Spokane for an Athletic Director's meeting. Never in my wildest dream would I have imagined my life taking the turn it did. Lucky for me (us) we've gained so much more than we've lost over this past year (besides weight). Miracles do happen...you've just gotta believe!
I worked today (at my real job) so I'm exhausted tonight. It's not as though I run around all day, it's just mentally draining and that's what wears me out. I forget how much information I have stored in my head until someone asks me something and "poof" it pops out of a dusty, cobwebbed hole in the back of my brain. Thank goodness it's only my short term memory I struggle with. No kidding, if they made velcro post it notes that I could hang on my clothes to remind me where I'm going or what I'm wandering around the grocery store for, I would buy some (but I would probably forget what I bought them for).
Hopefully chemo will go a little easier on Rick this week. He just hasn't felt the same since the episode after the last chemo cocktail. His treatment isn't as early as it usually is ~ so I'm hoping to be able to sleep better tonight since I won't be afraid of sleeping in. As a matter of fact, a little shut eye sounds good right now so I think I'll call it a day.
Love you more than the IRS loves our money...
