Yesterday was a mixed bag. My husband Steve had radiation therapy in the morning. Then we went to buy burial plots, followed by a lovely time at Gardner Village (across the street from the cemetery) with Steve’s sister, her husband, and Steve’s mom. Had Philly Cheese steak sandwiches at Moochie’s then Steve’s family left for a few hours so he could rest. When they came back we played Farkle in the back yard until it got too dark to see the dice. We had fun and connected with the family, but Steve was not feeling the greatest. His bone pain is making it hard to walk.
This morning I woke up to take Steve to radiation therapy and his temperature was 102.4. That’s hot! So we went to radiation and then to the ER where a urinary tract infection was found. His family came to the ER and then we went to lunch at JCW’s. The whole time we were there Steve was shivering, but managed to eat his pastrami burger, fries and orange soda. He was very disappointed he couldn’t have a milk shake because it would interfere with his antibiotic absorption. His family left us after that so Steve could rest. He came home and watched Terminator 3. Well he sorta watched it twice because he kept falling asleep. We are hoping he feels better tomorrow because he has been planning to go to Ogden with his family to visit his father’s grave and to take an NLP (neurolinguistic programming) class. Today he wanted to go to Park City and stroll around the art galleries. Not gonna happen. But life is a mixed bag – we are having fun times, sad times, boring times, exciting times…. At least Sky Net is not a reality (that was a Terminator 3 reference).
