We just made a banana trifle with praline crumble within the layers. It's in the 'fridge and won't be touched until tomorrow. Too bad we can't grow bananas here, for we already have the tarantulas! In fact, just yesterday, Jane found a tarantula in the back yard. Peachy. You KNOW how I feel about hairy-legged spiders.
Someone asked me today if I had the results of the PET Scan yet. Well, *I* don't have it, but I'm sure Dr. Fastenberg has seen it. I would think that if there is no problem, we won't even discuss it until May 5th, when I see him before my infusion. So, if someone from Ironwood were to call before that, I'd surmise it was because something 'problematic' was found, and we'd have to go back to the toxic chemos. Gods forbid.
Wendy's been doing clinicals in a palliative care ward at her local hospital. I know it's hard on her, because I think she's equating a lot of what she is seeing with what will be my future. In fact, she asked me today if her talking about her time there was bothering me. Actually, it's not. And the reason is that I understand what's probably in my future, and though I'm not looking forward to it, it's simply another part of this 'adventure,' as my mom would call it. I can't project myself there; each of us will deal with what's presented to us in our lives in our own way. When the time comes, I will deal with it. Just make sure I get lots of pain-killers, please. :)
Oh, and I bought myself a birthday present today, although my birthday isn't until the 6th of May. But I got myself a Xoom. I'm so excited about it! It will be such fun to have during infusions, and waiting on doctors, etc. I have to wait until Tuesday for it, though. I am SO impatient. :D
So, this coming week, I'm going in to work on Tuesday and Thursday. Wednesday I have to go have some bloodwork. I always look forward to seeing my local Phlebotamist! Ahh, I shall take my Xoom with me, for although I have an appointment, there might be a bit of a wait, and besides, I tend to arrive for my appointments with obsessive earliness. That's a trait I inherited from my father; punctuality to the nth degree.
For those of you that celebrate, Happy Easter! I remember one year Wendy and I, not being one of those that celebrate this holiday, went bowling. We had all the lanes at our disposal. :)
Love to all!
