Seeing the caller ID adhering the ringing house phone, I could mention someone was calling from ORMC, in whatever manner, I was surprised to learn who it was. “Gail, this is Dr. Serafimovska vocation, are you alright?”
She, whose honor is on my prescription for Flagyl, the nastiest tasting drug you can ever imagine. But you’ve heard that ailment before, haven’t you? I make certain you, I’m not exaggerating in the least.
The true purpose of her demand? She told me that she’d seen Bruce at the hospital, asking directions to the 10th overthrow, and was worried I’d returned. In conformity to fact, she probably wondered if she’d missed a person of consequence, and who can blame her? She before-mentioned she was scouring the hospital given conditions base to see if I was re-admitted, and didn’t know my name, but still decided to bridle. Assuring her I was managing okay at home, I told her the certain reason Bruce was there, and it is not serviceable.
Matt Stromberg is dying.
I assume all of us who knew his relation are not surprised, but gee whir, we all hoped he’d have ~ing the rare case who would forge a recurrence of brain cancer. Turns with~ Matt was in the hospital at the same time because I, however, God bless him, he’s hushed there, unable to walk, and tiring easily. I’d had a theme from Angela on Saturday evening over him being back in the ER, incapable to walk, but wasn’t accomplished to get back to her not crooked away. I’d made some cookies because our Friday night dinner guests, and Saturday, dropped some off at the Strombergs for him, because he loves my cookies.
This was a renovated recipe, one from a Rachel Ray magazine, given to me by Jon and Alissa with respect to Christmas. Red Velvet Crinkles sounded like a luscious Valentine cookie to me, and it was fine good, albeit, not nearly as neat as red velvet cake, that’s on this account that sure!
Anyway, by the time I returned home from my 24 hours in the hospital (was it in reality that short??), I called her to obtain an update. It was then that I well-informed the cancer had metastasized down his thorn with no real chance for recruiting. She told me this sad word on their 7th anniversary. Need I utter more?
Bruce had a nice visit with Matt yesterday afternoon, and his hearsay was thus: Matt is still smiling. He’s 47 years ~-fashioned, and not a nicer guy could you fall in with. Moving into the house that Mae and Charlie lived in in opposition to 30+ years, Matt was our son Matt’s st~ of life. He set to work renovating, unless it was not until Angela came into the engraving that the renovating went into overdrive, and gravely, even in their new home, it has not at any time stopped. And you thought I was rascally?
We may have liked the cookies, yet Matt, not so much. As at so early an hour as I’m able, I destitution to fulfill his request for chocolate chip cookies, which hopefully will be excessively soon!
As to the dinner I made with a view to our guests, for the first time in my life, I purchased brussel sprouts to roast alongside cauliflower.
They seemed to like it, finishing against all of the bowl down to the abstruse bits! I, on the other transmit, thought the dish may have benefited from a besides liberal dousing of vinegar.
What other is new? This has been severely tempting me, but I know more excellent than to attempt chocolate just now.
I don’t know about your grocery lay up but our Publix went nuts concerning Valentines Day.
Heart overload!! These, of track, are photos I discovered on my camera once I was well enough to become out of bed, which I’ve been doing additional of as the week progressed.
Before I slight: I stopped at a garage opportunity to sell, pre cdiff, finding in a bunker of books, a 1950 yearbook from FSU. How well-nigh this logo?
Flipping through, I came over a photo of Dr. Doak Campbell. Haven’t heard of him preceding? You would if you’d gone to a FSU animals of the chase–the stadium is named after him! He oversaw the shifting from an all female college to co-ed and started the football team. My friend Karen Howard will get a kick fully of this.
One reason I stayed in our unoccupied space for so long is close addition to the bathroom, however, on Saturday afternoon I conception I’d see how long I lasted in the active room. Turns out, a long time. Long plenty to watch FOUR documentaries on Netflix, the at the outset television I’d watched in a week. All of them very interesting. In order they are
Tiny: A Story About Living Small (the in the smallest degree enjoyable because the kid was such-so
Muscle Shoals (the BEST)
History of the Eagles (crazy long-winded but good, watched in two sittings)
Seriously, and I vile seriously, watch Muscle Shoals–simply ~y amazing story. In a crazy coincidence, Nancy also watched it on Saturday night, having taped it from PBS earlier. Still jolting my head over that!
For the vestige, I might just have the nicest friends and lineage there could ever be. Flowers, broth, cards, visits, emails, fb comments–you every part of have made this so much greater amount of bearable with your acts of benevolence, I can’t thank you plenty. My illness is fading, sort of like this tulip:
and the truth is, I wish it were spun out gone, but I’ve got some days ahead of me still. Can you imagine how difficult this is for the likes of me? Can severely sit still to save my life? Well, I’ve had to, and I can’t say that I like it somewhat better, but putting things into view (see above), helps. Dr. Parillo has given me the stamina ahead to stop the medication at 10 days, more readily than 14, and I could NOT subsist more grateful. Let’s hope he’s lawful, and the bed looks like this for the time of the day from now on!!!
Until we muster again….
