I got to the hospital late today. I wanted to go to the farmers market and get my cinnamon shorty. I got the last two. Everyone tells me to take care of myself but it is so incredibly hard to do and fills me with guilt. I know, my own problem. My Handsome Prince does not feel good. He has a low grade temperature, no white blood cells and neutrophils, and issues at both ends of his GI tract. That being said, it is all being addressed. Blood has been ordered as has Tylenol and some ointment. We will spend the afternoon and evening listening to a book on audible or podcasts, him snoozing, me knitting. And that's how I take care of myself, gathering the knowledge I need and sitting beside him. Oh, and knitting.

I saw a card with these words and I think of them when things are not going the way they should. It was a Charlie Brown and Snoopy card. Charlie Brown says wouldn't it be nice if life were like a DVD...and you could fast-forward through crummy times! Hang in There! We will pray that Pat will get through these unpleasant times quickly. Take care. Love, Molly's Family

grumpy as you both may be, just being together is the most important thing you can do for yourself and each other.
