As Good Friday is upon us, I am thankful for good reports. On yesterday my husband’s appointment with the urologist went well…no cancer in his prostate and the foley was removed.
He was exhausted though…we both were. The appointment was early morning and he struggled. After the appointment he was to tired to eat lunch, so instead he had a protein shake, some fruit and lots of water. Then he rested. I sat my alarm for the next round of meds and tried to rest myself but could not…I contacted my husband’s daughters with the latest update.
I’m so tired…I phoned a friend and talked briefly and then a mentor called and allowed for a brief vent session. I then plundered in my garden…planting flowers, cayenne and three varieties of sweet peppers all from seed. A neighbor from the water side made her way across the street; bringing with her a beautiful ocean shell for me to add to my collection. Her husband and my husband would often speak yet this was our first interaction since they moved in a few years ago. She shared a story of a friend who stopped chemo all together and has been suffering and said that she’d be praying for us. The shell fit perfectly on one of our tabletops out front.
I can stay in the garden for hours…sometimes working, other times just sitting but always praying. I move things around alot as well…sometimes you just know that a plant is not where it should be, so you move it… that’s when it gets happy. I have one bird of paradise that must have gotten jealous of it’s twin in the house and just started to fall apart…she’s out in the garden now and I am praying she finds her way back. I moved a watermelon to her final destination as well. I’m excited to see if she is yellow or red…either way she’s going to be just as sweet as can be. I also added the lovely Thai Basil to the mix…all that is left is to find holy basil and make myself smile my happy smile.
Today was a good day and I pray it was for you as well…Remember that and don’t forget to drink your water 💦
Blessings Abounding, Vetta
