I honestly cannot say why, but I have been in an outstanding mood all day today! I thought I would be in the doldrums because Jeanette, Jillian, and Vanessa left in the wee hours of the night for a pageant in Nashville, so I wouldn’t have my darlin’ daughter to talk to through the day, but it hasn’t been a bad day in the least.
The only time I choked up a bit was discussing my buddy’s elderly mother-in-law, whose body is shutting down. His description of what she’s going through reminded me very much of Kim’s last days. That, and his aunt who was a hopeful inspiration to Kim and me – she’s been battling pancreatic cancer for over 7 years – is now on the losing end with metastases in her lungs, and no longer having the will to put up with chemo. But, for flying solo all day today, I have to say it was a VERY good day.
The therapy for the signal imbalance in my ears, too, went very well, and to good effect. Frankly, I think I’m pretty much back in fighting trim – at the very least 98-99%. My PT suggested we continue with the two scheduled sessions next week, and that will likely be that. I like the people there and will miss them. They are friendly and approachable – not at all like the ENT who sent me there.
Excepting the two bits of bad news for my buddy, I’m hoping for more and more days like this one.
And, today is Family Friday. It’s Christopher’s turn in the galley, and he’s on a keto diet, so I’m a little curious to see what he has in store for us.
Postscript: Barbacoa! Delicious barbacoa tacos. I ate too much…
