TGIF and then some!
Roger has me on a short leash today(yes, it IS possible) so after folding some laundry and remaking the bed in the guest room(if that bed could talk....it has been rotating between Kelli and Kiereney and Michael has had to sleep on the couch when he's been here. He's coming up for the weekend tonight and he gets the bed back!) I have been sitting at the computer loading songs onto my IPod and playing long overdue catchup with email and blogs.
As I mentioned, Michael is coming up tonight for the weekend and we're going to watch the debate between McCain and Obama. I listen and Michael translates as my mind, thanks to cancer treatment and fibro, isn't able to absorb a lot of data at one time so Michael gives me the highlights and it works for us. He has to use that BA History degree somehow...
KJ is doing well with Kelli although the poor thing is obsessed that either her incisions are infected(they are not and the staples will be removed on Tuesday) or the spot where her central line was is infected or bleeding out(it is not). I guess if I had been hit upside the head with as many unexpected medical problems as she has been in the last 5 months I would be leery as well. A friend of mine who is the secretary at the Methodist Church KJ's grandma attends saw her yesterday and said that KJ is the unsinkable Molly Brown with her humor intact. She carries the bear Michael got her everywhere she goes for incision comfort when she coughs usually but forgot it yesterday when Kelli took her to see my friend and my friend gave her another bear so KJ is racking up a collection.
As for me, I've coughed up at least 6 pairs of lungs so far but I think the end is in sight so hopefully by Monday when I pick up KJ for her appointment up here on Tuesday, I will be better.
What's on our weekend agenda? No clue...we're just rolling with it. I hear our temps are supposed to get cooler so I may talk the boys into some road trippin' in the area to see if the leaves are turning yet.
And, needless to say, KJ's quilt got sidelined for the last month or so with her illnesses so I need to get busy and get it finished by Nov. 1 before the holiday season begins. Hold me to that, will you? I've just been too pooped to pop this week and somehow I couldn't concentrate on it at the hospital. KJ kept me hopping.
Take some time to get outside this weekend and JUST BREATHE. I learned when KJ was in the hospital that you can forget to do that and the most restoring moments for me were either in the chapel or stepping outside with a cup of coffee and just feeling the air and remembering that the world was still going on around me even if mine had stopped because of KJ.
Have a phenomenal weekend!
