i had them run the dexi for an hour (instead of 30 minutes), in the hope that i wouldn’t sleep so much two days later. well, i didn’t sleep so much – only 8 hours – but not 8 consecutive hours. two hours here, two hours there. thankfully, Dewey (the book, that is) was around and kept me company. it really is a wonderful book. you should read it.
in other events, i have a gummy bandaid on. the nurse – one of my favourites – did not believe that i spurt. oops. i hope i didn’t get her in the eye. now i have to find replacements – and learn how to apply them.
and olivia is coming for a visit! little dog, little dog! i hope this helps. i’m feeling better than last time – but i’m not feeling that good right now. maybe cannibal will give me a break.
somehow, i threw the alarm. now you never think about alarm clocks, but i had no choice but to, given the fact that after not ringing at all it rang at 2:30ish am regardless of what time i set it for. i ended up buying a little one – only one ringer and sound. let’s see how this works. and hope i don’t throw this one.
thwump. thwump. thwump. golfers don’t know how to golf – which is why my front yard looks like a playground. front yard. that’s right – front yard. not back.
sun showers. sun with rain. annoying! i went outside to get the water bottles and got deluged. now my socks are wet – and i’m too lazy to change them.
and to the box that was supposed to arrive NEXT week but arrived on the 29th: you’re lucky. just lucky.
stage 4 cancer sucks. this whole ordeal – which has gone on for almost a year – isn’t nearly as cute and cuddly as a new baby, or puppy, or kitten. it’s a lot of hard work.
i’ve had to shut off my bedroom phone to sleep (and yes, i do sleep).
i’ve had to shut off my bedroom phone to work (and yes, i do work).
i’ve had to shut off my bedroom phone.
but olivia is here and loving life. well, as much as a ten-year-old can love life. she’s relaxing in the living room and due to go out for her potty break. she has some issues – but nothing that can’t be taken care of by my vet. she likes syddie’s bed. i was going to get her a new one, but she likes his. he didn’t. she’s really a little dog – only 12 pounds. but cute. pictures coming soon!
i need to sleep, but olivia will keep me awake. somehow, i think she’s just the ticket.
well, olivia didn’t keep me awake. she stayed in syddie’s den. didn’t eat. didn’t drink. she’s back so far i can’t reach her.
i fell today. well, not really *fell* but went down on my knees and couldn’t get up. i had to crawl over to my white chair to get up. embarrassing, yes. but more humiliating than embarrassing. now i’m all crunchy.
truly, i cannot tell when someone is going to get sick during chemo. for the longest time nobody got sick – then two people in two consecutive treatments. one older woman coming back, and one younger guy starting (i think). the older woman required a doc – and she was trembling so. the younger guy should have but did not accept doctor’s services.
we don’t even talk about the young woman – a non-patient – eating eggplant parmasian – something i would love to be able to eat but can’t because it tastes horrible to me, the nearly-vegetarian. and she was rude.
he had a fever of 102. they gave him tylenol.
well, that’s it for now. have to go coral the doggie. and sleep (despite the fact my new alarm is 8 minutes fast and can’t be adjusted – i should have read the recent reviews) .
