January Thaw

I haven’t written for…a week or two? Life has been happening. JJ is back in his college classes. He really enjoys his classes. He is taking a law enforcement class, sociology, math and, I think, a psychology class. Almost every year Michigan has what…

GPS Meltdown

JJ had his periodic appointment with his oncologist today to make sure he is still cancer free. I went with him because he doesn’t want to go to medical appointments alone–especially not to oncologists. I wouldn’t want to either. We’ve only been to this…

Unfamiliar Things

Last night I looked out the front door and saw a humongous spider on the porch. I texted EJ, “I just saw the biggest spider EVER on our front porch. I need a gun.” It was the size of my hand. Seriously. I took…

Autumn Walks and Drives

I spent Wednesday and Thursday afternoons in the kitchen. Wednesday I made two homemade potpies from leftover chicken. After I made them, I realized that I had enough chicken for a couple more pot pies so I made two more yesterday, which I froze…

1, 2, 3…

This morning JJ had an appointment with his oncologist. JJ and I were both really tired because we only got about 4 hours sleep. We never seem to sleep very well before a medical appointment. EJ slept really well. We had a really nice…

Nice & Boring

The days of this summer are passing by with one day blending into another without much change. I don’t mind that. Sometimes co-workers ask EJ “How’s life?” When he replies, “Nice and boring,” they respond, “What? Really? No, you want it EXCITING!” EJ says,…

The Summer of No

One morning last week EJ went for a walk with Danny and me. He doesn’t walk with me often, but I always enjoy it when he does. Anyway, at one point EJ said to me, “There is a bug on you.” I didn’t panic…

A Good Report

This morning we had to wake up early for JJ’s appointment with his oncologist. I was so afraid of oversleeping that I didn’t really sleep much at all. JJ didn’t sleep much either.  EJ slept well, but he didn’t sleep much the night before…

The Doctor Appointment

Last night I didn’t sleep well. My thoughts wouldn’t shut off and I tossed and turned until after 2 a.m. Then I came downstairs. JJ was still up because he couldn’t sleep either. I settled into EJ’s recliner. Several cats settled next to me….

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
