Tears of Impotent Rage

Yesterday started out bumpy for me because I feel increasingly  frustrated by the problems with the lawn mower. Every mower I touch this summer dies. I don’t know how to fix an ailing mower and EJ is too busy (or tired) from hours of…

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…

Borgs and Empaths

I knew from the forecast and Accuweather radar that it was going to rain today, so I walked to the post office, took out the trash, and weeded my herb garden early(ish) this morning. I had only weeded a bit of the herb garden…

Plants. And Chickens. And Binoculars.

Yesterday EJ had to have his blood drawn in preparation for a doctor’s appointment tomorrow morning. We had an enjoyable 30 mile (or so) drive to the lab. Afterwards we stopped at the nearby farm-market type store because EJ had had to fast for…

The Waiting Room

I feel better than I did on Saturday, but I am still struggling with congestion and a cough. Last night I only got a few hours of sleep because I couldn’t get comfortable and my coughing kept me awake. It was a short night…

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…

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,…

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…

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…

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…

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…
