Its Sunday afternoon and shann is napping. A quick overview; Mar’s fella Will, has left and headed back to their Calif. home—Mariya to follow next week…..both have been ‘huge’! We were on a regime of everyday visits to SCAA (seattle cancer care alliance)—-we asked for a day off after yesterday’s outing and so we get to keep a low profile all day today! The second time now in two weeks of this new reality. Everything that was the normal and the routine is now topsey turvey—The new reality is that its all different and all the time changing.
It seems that each persons cancer (and body) is slightly different; so to is the ‘cocktail’ of drugs that they receive to treat it. Shann is doing dasatinib and vincristine and half a dozen other drugs, including steroids and white blood cell boosters—more info that anyone needs to know I suppose—-and is coming along pretty darned well—getting to sleep uninterrupted through the nights and away from the hospital (as great as the staff at UW Hospital is) has been grand. Our ‘cottage’ life is settling down—am making soup today and shann and I have started back into watching the West Wing for the first time since this all came crashing in two weeks ago.
Think I’ll make a run to the store while she sleeps. Regards to all you Shann fans out there and a request; Business gets to come to me and not shann–her job is to heal, 100% of the time—-and that healing of course includes getting jokes and notes and antidotes from you, her fans……
Not very literary—-just a bit of information—–steve
