Bottle Episode

Aka clip episode, aka recap show.  We kind of feel like we are in one right now.  You know those episodes on TV where the cast members are “trapped by an [earth quake|winter storm|power outage|Alien invasion|in prison|illness] and they reminisce about events past and speculate about the future.  Hollywood will do them typically at the end of a season when budgets are tight or if a main cast member is away for whatever reason and they need to be written out that week… So you have flashbacks and clips of previous episodes somehow woven into a ‘mostly new’ episode. Kind of feel like that right now.  Not too sick to be in the hospital, but feeling crappy enough not to venture out of the house very much and trapped in doors for the most part.   Thinking of times past and trying to look hopefully to the future.

It was nice to spend the day home with Kathleen today and take her on her errands.  She was feeling a little better compared to yesterday.  Still, she has some nasty breakthrough pain in her shoulder and neck which is rather worrisome.  Her CT is supposed to happen well before her next appt with her chemo oncologist which is the first week of Sept. Will the mass be smaller/bigger/gone on her pancreas ? Is it just a pinched nerve in her neck ?  A season one cliff hanger.  Will have to wait for the season 2 opener to find out.  Hopefully it wont be one of those annoying shows where all is not resolved.  Oh right, this is reality 🙂

    Dear Kathleen and Mike,

    I am sorry to read that these last number of days have been so tough for you both. So many questions and unknowns it seems. I am at a loss for words on this particular blog posting though I do want to say that with this message comes a humungous load of caring thoughts being sent your way.

    Hugs ~ Jill

    Hello Kathleen and Mike,

    I wanted to pass along some warm thoughts and good energy to you during this difficult time. You are so brave and I must say that the love you put forth is amazing, the love that comes through all of what you are going through is truly inspiring. I spent last weekend with Drew and it was so timely for us to be sitting at his computer writing a message to you and poof there was a new post on your blog. I had sent a reply message to your “About” section which I now know that is not really the place to send you messages….I am not so savvy when it come to computers I must say…
    So I wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you, and that I wish you best thoughts.

    hugs to you both

    I sent a msg to Mike through Facebook but maybe you’ll see this quicker. I was hoping to come visit next Saturday and bring the husband and kid. Neither of which you have met. I know it’s been difficult and I don’t want to intrude. Our visit can be short. And I know my daughter will put a smile on your face becasue she’s really goofy and funny. Hope to see you soon.
    Love you guys. Mon
