I am sitting here watching hub sleep and listening to his beautiful sounds he makes while sleeping. I never thought I would think snoring was a beautiful sound BUT at this moment it is.
Hub had his first round of chemo a little over a week ago(March 21st to be exact). The following g Thursday we went to remove his chemo pump (after taking 3 different kinds of chemo he comes home with a mobile pump-pumping chemo into his body for 46 hrs) and he became like a dishrag. A wheel chair was needed to roll him to the infusion room, his blood pressure dropped, and he began to sweat a lot! Immediately taken to the ER to begin tests and given fluids. The tests came back showing no concerns and hub began feeling better.
Monday was his doctor's appointment with his oncologist. The oncologist was concerned with his weight loss but blood work looking good. Hub promised to eat better (yeah, right) and drink better. On Tuesday he felt awful, so I called his oncologist ( hub has his cell phone nu…
Back in July, a trip was planned to visit Asheville, North Carolina with a couple of college and sorority friends. Two were driving from Atlanta, Georgia one from northern Virginia and I was coming from southwest Virginia. We had rented a house in Asheville. We had not all been together in over 20 years....so one can imagine the thrill the night before the trip!
Screaming and hugging on arrival of seeing one another..was only the beginning of a fantastic weekend.
Thursday evening we drove into Asheville for dinner and spent the evening with much talking and laughing.
On Friday, we had tickets to visit Biltmore. None of us had ever been and on OH MY...if you have never ever been I highly recommend a trip to Biltmore. It is breath taking.
Please excuse me but I can't seem to rotate the picture. The construction of this family home took six years. We had purchased the audio guide and were able to hear an explanation of each room plus…
Hub's first round of chemo was Tuesday-Thursday. On Tuesday he went for 6 hours of chemo and then he is hooked up to a mobile chemo pump that goes for 46 hrs. straight. Ya'll that is some harsh chemo.
I stayed with him on Tuesday, well I did sneak upstairs to a shoe sale going on. Daughter #1 stands from 8-7 five days a week and then on Saturday. Even though there is a mat, she still says her feet her. The shoes were for nurses to wear and the nurses said daughter would really love a pair. The nurses also assured me hub would be okay. One nurse even walked with me to the shoe sale. I bought daughter two pairs...a hit too for she fell in love with both styles I chose for her.
Hub was all smiles when I showed him the purchase....BUT not the price ha!
Hub finished the treatment, was hooked up to the pump, instructions were given (hygiene care, clothes washing, and he had to drink 3 quarts of liquid daily),and we headed home. Tuesday evening and night was prett…
