Back to work today for me and a nice day for Kathleen and Elaine together doing some simple things– going to the mall for a short trip, and washing the new Eddie Bauer order that came in the mail today. (6-8 weeks is a long thing of the past in this instant gratification age).
Still 3 bags of gravol today unfortunately and only a few hundred calories of food. But I think a little better emotionally today. Doing these normal things help. Certainly for me, I have my work which forces me to focus on things outside the bubble. For a bit. But even better, we had a nice walk around the neighbourhood tonight for Orville’s evening outing. We love this time of year. Orville is by far a winter dog, but for us, this time of year is the best. Something about walking under that thick green canopy dappling the evening sun in 30C heat is just so welcome after those dark winter nights. We took our time, stopped and talked to our neighbours and just enjoyed the moment. It wasnt “best night ever”, just nice. But, its great to be able to be in that moment again and enjoy something simple again.
Tomorrow is the lung CT scan. That can be one of the places it can go, so better take a good look. Kathleen’s new radiation schedule is up too. Back to the radiation on Thursday. No sign of the chemo, but not sure if they just have not updated the schedule yet. Also, a long 90min appt with the genetics people. I guess there is some suspicion there might be a genetic aspect to this type of cancer. No idea what to expect, but we will find out tomorrow.
Kathleen wants to say that she really appreciates all the emails and comments she gets. She wants very much to respond, but her focus and energy is not quite there yet.
