DH and I are doing better than I expected. He's really living out the "in sickness" part of our vows (not that I doubted him for a minute ... but it's still heartwarming to see him keep the promise he made me almost 29 years ago). For example ... sitting in my recliner has been most comfortable for me, and he's lowered and raised the footrest as often as I've asked (which is a lot more than you'd think) without a single complaint. And he's living proof that an "old dog" can learn new trick ... we had a lesson in doing laundry and in cleaning the bathroom. ;-) I appreciate his caregiving, but I'll be honest with you all ... I can't wait for the ok to resume doing more for myself.
DH and I are keeping busy working on puzzles.
We finished this one on Wednesday
and started this one
I'm also doing a lot of reading ... I'm about halfway through Harlan Coben's latest. And I've got the second book in the Kay Scarpetta series downloaded to my iPad. That all is in addition to my devotional reading (Jesus Calling, First Five and incourage.me).
And now that the baseball season is underway and the Stanley Cup playoffs are just days away, our evenings are full of Cardinals and Blues games.
If only Spring would return ... I'd love to be able to sit out on the deck, soaking up the sun, and reading. But with lows in the low 30s and highs only in the low to mid 50s, it's just too chilly out there for me.
I've also been daydreaming about our plans to spend a day or two in Paducah during Quilt Week. It's a little less than two weeks from now, so I should be able to be mobile enough to spend a few hours being inspired. Of course, if I don't tolerate the second round of chemo (especially if he adds another chemo drug), that little trip will be cancelled.
Speaking of chemo, I see Dr. Powell on Tuesday, and I'm hopeful that he'll release me from some of my restrictions and give us an idea of when we'll start the next round of chemo.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
