Evening all! Or afternoon for you westerners.
Joe, I had no idea you did embroidery work. Please post a pic when you're done.
Ted, this is the season I start walking . I swear so many years in an OR environment decreased my ability to tolerate temps over 68-70 even more. Hope the muscles are better tomorrow.
Tweety, hope there's lots of strikes/spares in your evening (look! I know a little bowling terminology!)
Herring, stay safe out there.
Stars, it truly is heartbreaking to watch a loved one decline, isn't it? Hang in there.
Today was day one of hopefully a very long string without soda. I'm not a coffee or tea drinker, so that was my source of caffeine. I tried quitting before, and that didn't last too long. Definitely ate healthier today too, so we'll see if that holds up as well. Considering some of the disease risk factors that I can't change (thanks, genetics!), I definitely need to work on the ones I can change. Amazing how much a reality check/shock can influence your outlook and determination.
It's been 2 weeks without Mom, and I think I'm handling things better most of the time. I miss those just before bedtime calls to talk about our days, but now my dad calls every few days (much shorter call, but still much better than nothing). Finding out that there were things she's been hiding from us kids for a while- apparently back in July she asked the oncologist if it was weeks, months, or years left- he flat out said "Definitely not years" so I guess the dominoes would have fallen fairly quickly sepsis or not.
