This week is looking much brighter. Oh, the weather is still dismal, but I am feeling better. Unfortunately, I think I shared my cough with my son. The cough still lingers on and woke me this morning, but not before I slept all night!
Mom has her good days and bad days. The other day was good. I sit right next to her so she can hear me. I gave her a ride around the healthcare center. She has a Foley catheter which she is not too happy about. On the other hand, she said it is convenient at night so she doesn't have to get up and go! Love her outlook! Monday she goes to the urologist to see why she needs the Foley to "go."
Plan B: I cancelled our reservations for Easter and we are having it at the healthcare center. I got a room, ordered the ham, etc. Everyone chips in and brings a dish to pass and it will be so good for Mom! The best part is all the family can be together for her.
My bff has breast cancer. It is scary for me. My bff married my sister's husband. (We like to say that!) My sister had a three year battle with breast cancer and lost. Her husband remarried and Linda became my best friend! So, we don't want to lose her too! BUT! (Big but!) There are so many advances in the treatment of cancer and the survival rate is so much improved! We go up north (God willing) for a stamping convention the first weekend of May. I am sure she will be in the midst of chemo then, maybe be tired or not feel well. I have gone to convention after surgery. I had to rest more, stay out of the hot tub, etc. Linda is very independent and resilient. She will have her Nook, and knows how to relax and be alone if she wants to be. Whatever she wants, her friends will be supporting her and that means me. I hope I can be as good of a friend to her as she has been to me.
I went to another Stampin Up party last night. For some reason I am becoming a little more sociable even thought the table/s were very crowded with guests. We had a good time. This is one of the cards we made. (for some reason it is a little out of focus...sorry!) I am not crazy about the color combination. The other card was beautiful, but I am giving that one to Linda!
