Today was a good day. Actually, dare I say it, it was a great day. About 6-8 weeks ago sissy was tested for glaucoma and it came back that it was a possible positive. At the time this was crushing to mom. I couldn't stop laughing because it's such an "old person" thing. Anyway, sissy had her glaucoma testing today and mom went with her. I took the kids out to Grama's, came home and mom and sissy were already here. Sissy excitedly told me "I don't have glaucoma!" I told her good, since it would have really sucked to be blind AND have cancer. Mom just shook her head and looked away. She doesn't care for our cancer humor. It's the dry, offbeat sense of humor that sissy and I both got from our grandpa, mom's dad.
So, off we went to sissy's school so she could return her books. It was very sad as she loved school and was only able to go for a week before this cancer shit took over. After that we went out to lunch at the Adventist hospital (that's an entirely other blog post) and then the Adventist book store to stock up on veggie food. Suffice to say, whenever I leave either one of those places, I'm reminded again as to why I don't believe in that religion.... for me. So to go to BOTH places in the same day, well, it was negative overload. But at least it wasn't like negative CANCER overload, like tomorrow will be. Sissy, Josh and mom are going in to see the oncologist. We all hate and dread oncology day. It's actually three days long because you dread it the day before, the day of the appointment is always depressing, and the next day you still have this cloud of doom and gloom over your head so oncology day is really three days. Enough to make you puke (which all three of us almost did after lunch).
But, today was good. The three of us girls hadn't been out and about together without the kids since this whole fucktard cancer thing happened. So our spirits were up, we had fun and laughed. Well, most of the time, Beya didn't laugh whenever sissy and I made cancer jokes. We're trying to be respectful and not make so many of them around mom.
So, to wrap it up:
this afternoon = good
this evening = oncology day anxiety set in
tomorrow = sucks
Friday = oncology cloud still there
HOWEVER, the weather has been great and we're supposed to have fabulous weather (high 70's, low 80's) for the next week! Time to get the pool set up and get it warming for our annual 4th of July kick off pool party! SPC baby, SPC!!!! Take THAT you fucktard cancer! And sissy will be able to swim, even with her port! WOOHOO!!!!!!
