Month: February 2014

The Bald Eagle

Even though JJ is done with Chemo, he still has to get his weekly blood draws for a while. So this morning we all got up at about 8 a.m. JJ was grumpy about having to get up early (he is a night owl,… Continue Reading “The Bald Eagle”

Exercise

It’s nice to have a week without any Chemo. Yesterday morning I went to the grocery story in a nearby town to pick up a few things. I was really surprised to see employees busy in every aisle. At first I thought they were… Continue Reading “Exercise”

Future Plans

Both Saturday and Sunday I sat down and began to write a post, but I never finished them. For some reason, an intense week of Chemo really tires us and it takes several days before we regain any energy.  We have been sleeping late,… Continue Reading “Future Plans”

Cancer Center Goodbyes

Today was a very special day because it was JJ’s very last day of Chemo. I think the three months of cancer took forever to get through and yet also went very fast. Today JJ had a nurse we had never seen before. Pamela… Continue Reading “Cancer Center Goodbyes”

Thursday

We made it through yesterday’s Chemo ok. JJ hasn’t been feeling very well this week, but he hasn’t been vomiting so that’s good. I slept in EJ’s lazy boy chair last night. It’s easier to sleep near JJ so when my alarm goes off to… Continue Reading “Thursday”

Tuesday

This morning we again had to be at the Cancer Center at 8:30 a.m. We had about five or six inches of new snow, but EJ had no problem getting us to our destination. We were in Infusion Room 9 today. It’s the first… Continue Reading “Tuesday”

Last Week

Yesterday we had a relatively quiet morning. Well, except for the hawk. It twice tried to catch its breakfast at our bird feeder. The birds all were in a panic to get away and some of them sort of hit the window. The second… Continue Reading “Last Week”

The Survivor

This week has been a relatively quiet week. I did my daily chores. EJ went to work. I cuddled the cats and fed the birds. I also walked Danny twice. I haven’t been able to walk Danny very much since JJ was diagnosed cancer… Continue Reading “The Survivor”

Pampered Fun

My friend told me that she had given me a Fairy Godmother gift because I had laughingly told her that I sometimes feel like Cinderella. When JJ isn’t feel well, he is fretful and can’t settle down and needs attention–like meds, or something to… Continue Reading “Pampered Fun”

Earth’s Crammed With Heaven

My alarm went off at 6 a.m. this morning. Ugh. Too early, especially when I didn’t sleep well last night. In fact, none of us slept well. We had to be at the Cancer Center at 8:30 a.m. It is difficult to get up… Continue Reading “Earth’s Crammed With Heaven”

The Hawk

EJ had to go to work this afternoon, but we had a quiet, restful morning together. I made french toast with Challah Bread and then we studied the Parashah, or Scripture portions, together. Afterwards we watched a Netflix movie called “Owd Bob. The story… Continue Reading “The Hawk”

Spaced Out

Every day this week, I told myself that I needed to write a post, but that’s as far as it got. I’d sit down with my computer to write and my mind was a blank.  It didn’t help that my space bar was/is being… Continue Reading “Spaced Out”

Today at the Cancer Center

This morning we had to be at the Cancer Center at 11 a.m. The sky was very blue. The trees and bushes had heavy frost on them and they sparkled in the sunshine. The ground also glittered and sparkled. I commented later that I… Continue Reading “Today at the Cancer Center”

The Gopher and the Flower

Yesterday was a very bad day for JJ. He was restless and fretful and fought nausea all day. He finally ended up vomiting. A lot of times a person feels better afterwards, but JJ continued to feel nauseous. At bedtime I gave him his… Continue Reading “The Gopher and the Flower”

Why Be Happy?

Yesterday evening JJ felt pretty miserable. Several times he fell asleep on the couch, but then woke a short time later. A few times he had dry heaves. “How long will I feel so bad?” he asked. “How do I get through this?” I… Continue Reading “Why Be Happy?”
