Our entire family is struggling right now. We have the cancer thing in common, but then each have our own things that contribute to our own anxiety and depression. I think we will all benefit from some time off from the real world. I’m looking forward to being able to spend one-on-one time with each of them. Holiday break can’t come soon enough.


Today started off way rough. I’ve been majorly constipated for two weeks, and so I did a Fleet enema, which worked, but too well. And the pain…OMFG. So after about five hours of complete misery, I took Oxy and Immodium to clog up the works again. Sigh.

I was able to get it together for Jackson’s birthday dinner, thankfully. We had a really nice time, and I’m so grateful.

Aren’t we cute? ♥️

Happy Birthday To Me!

So this is 43:

I woke up feeling pretty rough, and thought the day was a bust, but I ended up getting better rather quickly. The symptoms became manageable enough that I was able to go out to lunch, do some shopping, and have dinner out. We ended up with this fabulous family pic, which I’m obsessed with:

After dinner, we came home and rented The Black Phone, which was really good. Highly recommended.

It was a really good day. I’m so very thankful. ♥️
