Now we wait and see.
Hopefully last Thursday’s chemo was Hil’s last!! It was number six in the series. Thanks again to Pam for accompanying Hil south of Major Mac for the bloodwork and to Rosie for coming down from Collingwood and spending the day with Hil on the Thursday. Great chicken recipe too!
Again this last event was speedy. Perhaps your body gets used to the cocktail.
Hard to believe that this has been going on for almost six months now but she still has her eyelashes!!
Now we have to wait approx three weeks and then a battery of tests will be performed in order to determine where she stands.
The only Christmas present we want is the “R” word wrapped up in a big bow……..remission!!
I would be remiss to not thank all the people that sent cards, letters, gifts and flowers for Hil’s birthday a couple of weeks ago. The house was like a florists!!
Today the roles are reversed! I have to see a specialist at Southlake as my right hand is totally (&*^%$#ed! Something wrong with the tendons in the palm of my hand. Can’t hold a golf club or tennis raquet. Doncha just luv gettin’ old! Soooo…Hil will come with me just in case. North for a change.
Even Sam was crook this week. She hurt her back working out during the week and ended up at the vet. More medication. No we don’t have a budgie.
So what have we learned from all this…..coming from a bloke that’s bin kinda material all his life?
The big houses, fancy cars, big boats, extravagant vacations are all so much bullshit at the end of the day. The principal things that count are your relationships and the health to enjoy them. Perhaps sometimes you have to be scared into this understanding. Hil and I are fortunate indeed. We’ve bin round the block and still survive. We have kids, grandkids and still have a bucket list although much shorter now.
Sooo….now we wait and see!! A few more days of needles for Hil and then Christmas is just around the corner.
Thanx to all. Best wishes to all. Hug someone today and keep laughing.
