but it was such a glorious, wonderful day.
My PEG tube lightened up it's need to torture me in the afternoon (what a difference a few hours make)...It was sunny and warm for here (some sun and 60 degrees), the grass is greening up, some of the trees are starting to bud out, the air smelled like spring!
Home Health stopped in (I guess my Oncologist prescripted them), and showed me how to work my PEG...well, clean it around it, and turn it...so I'm not scared of the darn thing anymore. Checked out all my meds, and my living situation...BUT, once she'd gone I had a whole day of no Dr.'s, no runs to any clinics, or hospitals....just hubby, myself, the dogs and horses. Even went shopping for a recliner for me :). Found just what I liked and brought it home. Neighbors came over and helped hubby get it into the house, then sat around and chatted for a long time...so normal.
After we got home, Vickie (my twin sister) showed up with shrimp salad and homemade noodles and chicken....then my little sister showed up with homemade vegetable beef soup, and broasted chicken and veggies....AND her massauge table and oil. We sat that up in the living room and she gave me a head to toe massauge....WONDERFULlY relaxing. So tonight I have my attitude adjustment, my body is limp, I'm over fed...and I'm so glad I have two free days before I have to see anyone medical. Chemo and rads start on Tues. I'm actually looking forward to getting this started, after all the postponing, I'm ready!!...
I have great neighbors, the two best sisters a person could have, a wonderful husband, and great, supportive friends on here...I'm so very, very lucky...
Life is GOOD! :)
