Just wanted to say I had a good day today and I expect mostly good days until August 19, when I get my next chemo treatment.
My personal nurse, Sylvia, gave me a completely painless neupogen injection today. Carol and Helena kidnapped me for an outing and it was absolutely splendid. I laughed A LOT! Carol has deservedly earned a reputation as "the funniest person we know" (Garnet said it first), and she was in fine form today. Helena and I were killing ourselves! The places her mind goes ... how does Ross keep a straight face? Ever?!
Sylvia took me on an excursion to check out "hair fringes" to wear with hats. The shop brought one in for me to look at ... something they thought would be similar to what I already have. But I was disappointed in it and didn't like the look. It looked very fake to me and a bit harsh. I did bring it home to play with a bit. Sometimes it's just a matter of fussing with these things as well as getting used to something that looks suddenly different than the way you imagine yourself. I'll look at it again tomorrow and see what I think. I really would like one because then I would wear my hats outside of my bubble more often ... and I DO have some gorgeous hats! Thanks, Sylvia, for the fringe. I hope I can make it work.
The rain meant I didn't get to Luke's lacrosse game tonight. They won their game handily. There's another game tomorrow at 7:00 and as long as it's not raining, I'll go to it. I miss seeing him play and I really do love the game.
Thanks, Mom, for cleaning our bathrooms today. And Luke quite loves having a personal laundry attendant. Boy, is he going to miss his Grandma when he heads back to Kentucky and back to doing his own laundry. Who will iron his t-shirts then?
Surefooted: A Visual Definition - I’m taking the visual dictionary approach today. This is hard for me. You know how I like to talk. But I’ll look at it as a spiritual discipline. The Word ...
