I'm so glad it is almost the weekend!
I'm thinking Hope is pretty excited too. It is looking to be a warmer and less wintery weekend around here which means plenty of romping around outside, good fun for all creatures great and small.
I'm so glad Friday is here and we made it through another week. This week flew by. And it seems days are flying by. The scheduled appointments Yooper has each and every week make us plan, schedule and make arrangements for and then pretty soon the day is upon us. We are busy with Mini Me's twice weekly figure skating she attends and then to add to our chaotic life, Yooper Jr.s' basketball started up. Which all means more time chauffeuring them about and plenty of time driving in my beautifully repaired truck.
Chemotherapy went very well for Yooper Wednesday. He had two different chemos run through him; his medical cocktails I like to call them. He also began his oral pill form of chemo Wednesday night as well which runs for five days. He was pretty tired yesterday, fatigued and feeling some nausea, but handling all of this so well. I truly do not know how he does it most days. Maybe it is the chocolate chip ice cream bars I bought him or the two Dunkin' Donuts coconut donuts I came home with today. If anything, the treats makes him smile. We do know we are finally finding a hold of his medications and his body is handling them much better.
We are almost to the six month mark since this whole new life of ours began. It is has been quite a talked about topic lately as we hit this milestone. It amazes me how we have done all this for these past six months. A blur yes, but most certainly some trying times with so many memories. Some I would like to block out!
We head back down to Duke University next week to have his latest MRI read and see where we are with his treatments and the next plan of attack on this brain cancer. I foresee a really good report on his MRI and good vibes all around. I suppose lately I am feeling very hopeful about our future. I have to be!
While most days I feel so tired, usually due to waking up at 3 a.m. during the night feeling so anxious about so many things, I keep plugging away. Yooper is feeling better as the days go on and regaining some more function in his arm and leg. These are such reliefs for both of us to believe we are perhaps finally coming over that plateau and settling in for some smoother roads ahead.
