A very informative Tele Health communication with Dr Sara, she has been filling in for my husband’s regular oncologist. I really like her…Dr Johnson is great as well and I am pleased that everything has been running just as smoothly as if he were still in the office.
Lab results were better…from a 7 up to a 8 on hemoglobin. The overactive thyroid will result in a referral to an endocrinologist in the next couple of weeks…prayfully they will be able to get it under control which will result in him being able to maintain a reasonable weight. She’s prescribing a medication to help increase his appetite as well. Next round of chemo in 10 days.
Now if I could only get him to eat a reasonable breakfast on this morning. He says he is burnt-out on grits and eggs and oatmeal and wants cereal…I’m to exhausted to protest, so cereal it is.
Another small miracle would be him not continuing to take off his oxygen…how important is breathing is my constant reminder to him. Without proper air to the body’s organs things just aren’t going to work properly. But he knows best…so I digress.
Last night right before midnight, I opened the upstairs window to enjoy the breeze coming off the water…It was lovely and as I attempted to get a little rest before the next medicine scheduled I could hear the birds chatting it up. At first it was quite entertaining…by 2am I was over it. I gave Mr his meds and tried to rest but those little birdies were going at it. I decided I’d get to talking too…talking to The One Who Does All Things Well.
Remember that and don’t forget to drink your water.
I think we might both try and nap before lunch and his afternoon appointment. A tired body does you no good.
I was planning on working in the garden a little this morning. Instead I will let all the hard work I’ve been doing by composting do it’s work instead…I can’t wait to get my hands on some of God’s Earth and those little wigglers.
Rest is all that’s on the menu for now.
Blessings Abounding, Vetta
