Today begins round four of chemo! Brad has two more days this week of chemo and he is all done. He will still continue radiation everyday and likely will have immunotherapy every couple of weeks, but for now, chemo will be done.
Curiously, Brad hasn’t lost all of his hair yet. It’s definitely thinning and he has shed some strands here and there, but for the most part, his mane still has flow. For me, I was bald by week 3. Still so weird to remember those feelings and see those pictures
Now that we’re all under house arrest, we are going a little bit bananas. Brad’s benefit has been postponed due to the pandemic, the littles are distance learning, and I’ll be lecturing from home. I don’t think there is a house big enough for all of us.
No guests are allowed at the Cancer Center right now. Brad has to be dropped off and picked up, making for a long day of figuring out school for the kids and myself and getting Brad to his appointments. I am really thankful the trip is only 50 minutes round trip, but twice in a day is a lot.
This caretaking stuff is really (REALLY) hard. I hate to say that it’s like single parenting, but there’s that part of it along with having one less adult to pick up the slack. I’m practicing grace, but there are days where I want to lose my shit.
Today I started getting summer stuff ready and winter stuff stored. I got the battery put in the mower, my bike up to the garage and the snowblower to the shed. It seriously better not snow anymore.
Our days are busy and nights are tough. I don’t want to wish the days away, but I do. Please, God, give me normal and give me health.
