Waiting for the Mothership

i am now a caregiver to my beloved.  Never saw it coming.  Clean colonoscopy 2016 but “oops“ GI doctor missed it.  2018 digestive issues.  Beloved had complete bloodwork by GP to see if food intolerances and wbc and nothing odd found. GP congratulates beloved on being healthy.  Digestive issues persists. Beloved visits different GI specialists and the tumor is discovered partially blocking rectum.  Stage IIIC colorectal cancer. Six weeks chemo and radiation.  Next LAR with temp loop ileostomy.  Beloved asks surgeon in follow up when is the next CT scan.

Book blog, maybe?

I think I'm going to start a blog about the books I read. I don't always remember what happens in some books and this would be a way to help that (plus, I've kind of always wanted to start a blog anyway! This doesn't count, it's more of an online journal). What's stoppin' me? Nothing. Now, I just have to figure out a name...

Endometrial cancer - grade 1

I am an 81 y/o female who was diagnosed with adenocarcioma of the endometrium - grade 1.  My life expectancy is around 84.

I am wondering if I should have surgery or opt for just radiation instead.  The reason I ask the question is  my age and health history

which is as follows:

(1) Post stroke - 10 years ago. Independent, Still drive,  but use a walker 

(2) COPD - mild  (3) Cataracts  (4) Rectocele  (5) Cystocele  (6) Hypertension  (7) Knees - bone-on-bone,

and now the cancer.

Made My Day

Barnes and Noble had a book blowout sale today and members got 50% off of a selection of books. And, if you buy at least 3 books, you get a free tote. I bought 2 books the other day and I got 4 today so I got the tote (I know I have a problem)! The real highlight of going to the store was that a total stranger gave me a hug. It was so sweet of her to do that, it really made my day. Every once in a while I'll experience a kindness like that and remember how much good there is in the world.

Colds and Unicorns

Bleh, I have a cold. It's not so bad right now, hopefully it doesn't get worse. I just finished The Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. She had quite the life. I didn't like it at first but as I read it, I found myself rooting for her more and more. It was a quick read, less than 300 pages. Now on to the next book!

I'm back!

I'm finally back home in NC! I'm in such a better mood now. I want to fully enjoy this week and do things that me happy. Today I went to Barnes and Noble and bought 3 books. It's the happiest place in the world. If I worked there, I'd never come home with a check.

Home Sweet Home

It's so good to be home, I missed it so much. It's sad that I have such a limited time here but I need to make the best of it. I really wish I could stay.
