Saturday And A Haircut

Hey all…  It’s Saturday.  A day when my honey and I can hang together a bit more…. even though she is still the energizer bunny taking care of the house, the grounds, the shopping, the cleaning, the loads to the dump, and me.  She gave me a haircut today.  I was overdue.  Getting kind ofContinue reading “Saturday And A Haircut”

No Sweat? Not!

Good morning Friday.  It was a rough one last night.  New bed, no sleep.  Go figure.  It’s a usual thing, or at least seems to be.  Come home from the hospital… sleep really well the first night, don’t sleep the second.  I don’t think I slept more than an hour last night.  Miserable.  Seems whenContinue reading “No Sweat?

Sprung…. Day Four

Karen and I got sprung from the hospital today, not long after my last push was completed.  We just got a call from Nancy letting us know what my blood counts were from yesterdays draw.  They only drew me once while we were there and those numbers are stable and still up.  Nancy told usContinue reading “Sprung….

The Return of Ida

Ida is back. She was a caustic visitor last we saw her, though she promises to be gentler this time around. We shall see if she keeps her promise. We are back in the hospital for consolidation round one. Karen’s air mattress is blown up, we walked what we think might be a mile aroundContinue reading “The Return of Ida”

Consolidation… Round 1

We went in and met with my oncologist today.  It went really well.  We aren’t messing around starting the consolidation round, I go into the hospital tomorrow, a day we chose.  I have to be there at 8:00 a.m. at admitting and then I’m back on the oncology floor for 4 days, if everything goesContinue reading “Consolidation… Round 1”
