All’s Well That Ends Well

Yesterday morning EJ had an appointment with his doctor to discuss the results of the MRI. We were both hoping and dreading learning the results. The good news is that EJ does NOT have anything like a Hydrocephalus or a brain tumor. Instead, he has…

Two in One

Last night was a very short night. Today was a long day. The alarms on our phones went off at 3:30 a.m., which is the middle of the dang night. We staggered out of bed and rushed around getting ready to leave for the…

Hand Therapy

The weather has been very nice. The nighttime temperatures often dropped below 20, but the daytime temps rose into the high 30s and 40s. Our snow is mostly gone, but we are supposed to get several inches soon–tonight, I think. Yuck, I like winter,…

Spring Fever

Last night I told EJ that if he would make sure the ducks and chickens had plenty of food and water when he shut them in the coop at night, I thought I could let them out in the mornings. EJ is always short…

Mostly Good

I really didn’t mean to go so long without posting an update…oops. I am doing mostly good in a lot of ways. I had been afraid that I would be in much more pain after the surgery, but I am actually in much less….

During and After

I survived my surgery. It was done at a surgery center, not the hospital. Apparently, they specialize in surgery. It is a very modern facility. I was so glad EJ was with me. I appreciate and trust JJ taking me to the other medical…

Update

I’m home. I survived surgery. It went well. I will write later.

The Billing Lady

I spent much of the morning doing laundry, washing dishes, and paying bills so we don’t have to bother with any of it right after my surgery. As directed, I called the surgical center early this afternoon to learn the time my surgery is…

Surgical Plans

JJ drove me to the hand surgeon today. It was actually a consultation, not the surgery. EJ had been sick when he called to set up the appointment with the surgeon so I think he misunderstood. Sickness can sort of make the brain a…

Low Day

This afternoon my best friend called me to tell me that she and her husband had bought me an Amazon gift card to cheer me. She knows I love Amazon gift cards. While we talked my friend asked me questions such as if I…

Life’s Focus

I’m discovering that even though battling cancer with a loved one is very, very difficult and very, very exhausting, it’s also very difficult and exhausting to try to merge back into life afterwards. During the cancer battle, life’s focus narrowed down to a task,…

And Miles To Go…

It’s been several days since I have written anything in this blog. Saturday was Shabbat so we rested. Sunday EJ moved several climbing rose bushes away from the bird feeders and next to the fences where they can climb better. EJ is never “aware”…

Slow Motion

I am sleeping on the love seat again while JJ recovers from his surgery. Often he needs help getting up because trying to get himself up strains his abdomen. He is getting stronger and sometimes can get up without help, but at other times…

Hair-Raising

When EJ called the repair shop yesterday to make an appointment to get our car fixed, he was told that cars were repaired on a first-come, first served basis. He wanted to get our car in early, hoping that it would be fixed before…

All About Today

After each major hurdle has been passed in JJ’s battle with cancer, I always think, “Ahhh! When this particular thing is over, we can REST!” But that is not really so. Or, at least, it hasn’t been so thus far. We still have busy…
