We're feeling a little blurry today. After a tough evening of suffering through some of the occasional side effects of the chemo we had a crisis in the middle of the night necessitating a visit to the emergency room. Thankfully, v was fine and required no intervention other than a check by the doctor and a couple of prescriptions upon leaving.
Today he is happily reading his New York Times and awaiting the arrival of our neighbor for their annual discussion on election topics. He is also very happily visiting with his daughter who lives out of state and is here for a visit. We do not see her very often and this is such a joy for him to see his beautiful daughter. I suppose she will have to be r in keeping with our style of incognito. We're afraid she didn't get the best of welcomes as he was barely present last evening, but she does, certainly, appreciate what his battle looks like. We really didn't mean to be quite so dramatic and hopefully the rest of her visit will be uneventful.
Tomorrow v begins his one week break from the chemo. We mean to make the best of it!
In bocca al lupo. m & v
