Took it easy this morning. I let Peter get the kids up and check Eric's blood sugar in the morning. We are getting the hang of the procedures but not his values yet so it is a little stressful to try and keep everything right.
Today we had more diabetes training at the hospital and the final check out meeting with the doctors. They are really a fantastic bunch there and spend the time to explain everything to us even though my chemo brain is not registering everything.
I am amazed that I can get around as well as I do. I don't dare sit down too long because I might not get up. We don't have many days left until the movers come to pack up the house so things have to get done.
After diabetes training it is time to go back to the pharmacy to pick up more of the medicine for Eric and then home. I tried to rest but it just didn't work because I am so excited that my sister in law Nicole and my nephew Jackson are on their way to us. It is Jackson's first ever flight on an airplane so it will be special journey for him.
We have been feeling the pressure of all the things that have been going on. Even though I am doing a lot of things, I am not doing so many of the things that should be getting done. And that is very stressful. So, any steps we can take to relieve the stress is good.
Today we decided not to buy the house that we had put an offer in on in London. Our plan was to renovate it and I am just too tired to choose items and deal with the builders. We have decided that it makes the most sense for us to rent something for a year and live our lives and then find a house that fits us perfectly. It was a hard decision to make but it feels like the right one.
I am not having any time to feel the side effects. I am thankful for that. I just get by each day doing the best I can. It is gratifying all my friends that make sure I am not alone by keeping up the contact with me - either in person or by chat or a call. It is overwhelming at times to be so loved. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU.
LOVED. GRATEFUL. KICKING CANCER'S ASS. FAMILY. FRIENDS.
