I had my chemo at the Lucy Curci Center today. I love the place….it’s so nice, so close and convenient and I’ll have the same nurses every time I go.
My mother-in-law Gale drove me today and snapped some photos. I won’t get my blood results until this evening or tomorrow but I’m praying for a good result.
And then the dreaded butt shot…..they can’t fit it all in one syringe…..so I have to get two (one in each cheek). All I repeat to myself is: at least it’s not Boo, at least it’s not Boo. They can do anything they want to me as long as it’s not Boo that has to go through it….I’m thankful it’s me.
My weight went down again so Gale bought me some Boost to try this time. 390 calories a bottle. I think if it’s really super cold and I use a bendy straw I’ll be able to get it down. Seriously, is the bendy straw not the greatest invention ever? I don’t even have to burn any calories moving my head to drink the Boost……so it might be the equivalent of 420 calories.
I miss my mom and sister. I wish I could be with my mom today. She just drove home to my parent’s house in Florida last night…..the first time since my father passed away. I know it was really sad for her because that is where she was when she got the phone call in May. She has so many friends that have been helpful down there and supportive though. Friends showed up to unpack her car and one even came over to set up her computer. So much kindness in people. And so much kindness when no one is even looking. I feel so overwhelmed by kindness recently I just need an outlet. I need to do something. I can’t take it all in. My friend Alberto sent someone over to clean my car today just because. I didn’t even think my car was that dirty.
My mother-in-law Kathy is here too for a week to help out. We are lucky to have a huge blended family. She and Boo put up our Christmas decorations today. I don’t see any reason why we can’t have them up for 7 weeks. Brett accidentally threw away the box that we usually lift the tree up with so I used the only other box I had: my wedding dress. It’s the perfect tree propped-upper….and actually makes it useful:
