Today's Tuesday, no? NO! It's Wednesday and I only know that because Carol was home today....this is her day off.
I had a looooong night. Up to the bathroom so many times I lost count. Then had some problems getting back to sleep at times. Stayed in bed today, got up, took a shower, then felt so shaky I went back to bed. Stayed there until almost 3:00! Then I got up, dressed and walked around the driveway, five times. That's what I've been doing each day, walking the driveway, round and round.
I can't stop thinking about the people in Haiti. That's one of the things that keeps me up at night. I think about how lucky I am to have food in my stomach, something to drink, a warm bed to sleep in....We have no idea what deprivation is.
Jim Calhoun is taking a medical leave. This is weird as I was thinking about him last week and thinking that he was just about "due" for one of his "spells" where he is dehydrated, or exhausted or has the stomach flu, etc. I think he should think again about retiring. He thought about it last year....time to rethink.
Something I keep forgetting to write about here, or maybe I had decided NOT to mention it....but I'm going to now. Some time last Spring I woke up in the morning and the number EIGHT was right in the front of my mind. It was a very strong premonition. Eight....and I knew it was associated with my cancer. I thought: does this mean I have eight years to live? or eight years until it comes back again? Or what? I put it in the back of my mind and didn't tell anyone...except Sandy (but I waited to tell her that--didn't say anything until the fall).
The other day I woke up and thought about the number eight again. I counted the number of months there are between March--when I last had chemo and November--when the cancer was back. Guess what? EIGHT!
I don't say that I always believe in these things...but sometimes.....
Sandy's making barbecued chicken for supper. That should help jumpstart my chemo cravings for barbecue! YAY!!! Food is tasting better....it lasts a few days and then fades. Thankfully!
Tonight I'll watch the Husky men try to win again. They are really in a slump. But with Calhoun gone, George will be coaching and the guys really respond to him. They'll be winning one for the Gipper tonight!
