We were able to travel to the coast to see our children and grandchildren and that was a real treat. Unfortunately I did not get nearly enough time to spend with the family as I had chemotherapy the day before we left, and much of the week I spent in bed sleeping off the exhaustion. I thought it would be easier to handle, but being bed ridden at home is not the same as out like a light at my daughter’s house. I felt sad that I missed so much, yet really blessed to be with family during the time that I was awake.
Lately, I have been recouping at home as I came down with pink eye the day before we left to come home. My daughter Misty took really good care of me as it was nearly impossible to find a clinic open or one that would allow me to come in. They were filled with sick patients, which is a huge problem for a chemo patient with a compromised immune system. Misty contacted her doctor and he was able to get me the medicine I needed. I still feel tired, but I am slowly getting better. I just have to get rid of the pink eye so I can have my last chemo session next week Thursday. They won’t treat me if I am still infected.
Below is a picture of my daughter Misty who was a tremendous host and fantastic turkey soup maker!
Below is a picture of the loveable Roxy who wanted to sit on my lap every opportunity she could. It wasn’t until after I contracted pink eye, that we found out that Roxy was the source. Poor Roxy had pink eye under all of that fluffy hair!
I never knew a person could get pink eye from a dog. Now I know!
I hope all of you had a blessed Christmas and that 2014 will be the start to a blessed year to serve the Lord!
