Today was the second day of brain radiation. So far, so good. My hubby has been blessed with no side-effects, just a slight headache early this evening, which was handled with Tylenol.
To kick-off the treatment, our dear son took us to Dallas to see the Bears and Cowboys game. The Bears won, which is a good thing, since they are Bear fans!
I'm kinda running on auto-pilot right now, as these will be a long 2 weeks. The treatment only takes 10 minutes, but it is an hour drive there and back!
The first week of October he will begin once a month Zomeda treatments. Lord willing it will slow the bone cancer down.
I'm still working on our relationship issue, not so much between him and I, as my acceptance that this may be how it is until whenever. Today as he was going in to his treatment, I whispered a blessing to him, his come back, instead of a simple thank you, was to ridicule my prayer for him. I think I know that he may think it's humorous and maybe that is his way of dealing with all of this, but it stung like a bee sting, and you know how it keeps stinging until you can pull the stinger out? Well, that's what I worked on today, pulling the stinger out! I didn't say anything or react to his "smart" comment. But I will be discussing the concept of perhaps saying something back to him, such as, "a thank you would have been sufficient, or ok, I'll keep my blessings and prayers to myself", with my therapist. It may help the "stinger" come out faster!
I pray that this finds you all well. "Hang in there, Baby!"
