Sissy called her oncologist today to talk to him about what to do with her last two day doses worth of chemo pills. The verdict? He told her to take them starting today, then she goes in Thursday or Friday for blood work. She then goes in on Monday to review her tumor marker numbers and see what to do then. She is glad that she only has chemo for today and tomorrow and the rest of the week off.
Work has been very, very slow for Norm but thankfully he's been able to stay working. I've been hearing from him since May, "I don't know if I'll have work after the next few weeks". Well, it finally happened. He isn't working tomorrow and may not be working the rest of the week. Winter is always slow to begin with but work has been especially scarce with the economy. We've been very, very fortunate to escape any repercussions thus far. And if worst comes to worst (meaning we'll have to live on unemployment and our income drops in half, literally) we can still make the mortgage payment. Again, we are very fortunate! It still sucks to have Norm out of a job though for who knows how long. But considering cancer, we don't have much to bitch about. And that's something we've always said, going back almost 17 years. No matter what shit we got thrown, we always said "we have our health." And when what we were bitching about was our (mental) health, we were able to say "we have meds to correct it."
That's about it. Sissy has felt good the past few days. We had a big party Saturday for the boxing match (yay!) and sissy was able to hang out all day! It was lovely.
Finally, I have a couple of pics that made me laugh out loud:
This dude was on the "Today" show (duh) and I could not stop laughing at him! The hair was what did it to me. Seriously! What the fuck is going on with that?! It wasn't until I was showing sissy the pic Saturday that it hit me who he looked like:
Am I right?
I watched "Oprah" today (at mom's behest) with Sarah Palin who was hawking her book. When they showed the cover of it.......
..... it too reminded me of something........
So there ya go, my highly politically INcorrect comparisons of the day.
