The days pass so fast now. Often friends say their days crawl along. Mine don’t. Often I sleep. Was it Monday or Tuesday I slept on and off all day…then not at all during the night? I have a care nurse who says it might be a combination of any two drugs I am taking. The new chemo alectinib does effect blood pressure. Mine is now a tidy 119/72.

I’m not getting the quilt done. Instead, I pick up a book and nod off.

Today-Thursday, at 10 my case nurse to update everything.
At 2 a blood draw to see if my kidneys are still working.

Friday at 9, the dentist. He’s going to open it all up and see if it “took.”

Saturday: Bobbie is visiting. We had hoped she could take her quilt home, but that’s not to be.

Sunday: Is a Marta day. We run away from Home and have breakfast on the cliffs or by the bay AT 8. For me it is scrambled eggs, sausage, and bacon. They add sliced tomatoes.
Himself: His continual cough may be due to one of his meds. Duck had the same reaction.
Myself: That’s me and my primary Doctor.
Reading: Penny
Watching: KPBS
Photo: on my little red scooter.
Gratitude’s: The sun outside on my windows.

Ya look good! I wish I could find a nap or two. How nice to go out to breakfast, I don't remember the last time we did that.

It's pretty hard to keep days and nights in order during this pandemic-triggered time warp. Add meds and "is this last week or next month?" One has to rely on calendar and notes.

Well your body must be needing it so sleep away. Your doc looks lovely although I imagine her feet won’t thank her for working in those gorgeous shoes all day! :)

It looks like Laura Linney is your doctor! Did you have a good visit with Bobby?
