We had a nice, relaxing weekend. Well, let me start over, after a Friday night visit to the ER, we had a relaxing weekend. Not to worry, it wasn't me this time. I ended up taking Doug to the emergency room Friday night after our dinner with his parents. Doug was not feeling well at all and ended up collapsing, then he was really out of it and very, very weak. He is okay, it just seems to be dehydration, but we were worried about his electrolytes since he hadn't had much to drink all day long and got sick earlier that morning. The fluids perked him up a bit and he came home about midnight Friday night. The rest of the weekend we layed pretty low, with just family over to play with Ella a couple times, but Doug is still not completely back to "normal". He is frustrated that he just didn't feel like doing much, again, not the norm, he is usually project king, always has something going on. I, personally, liked having him loaf around with me and Ella, hehe.
Again, thank you everyone for all your comments on the blog, I appreciate each and every one of them.
This coming week will be busy, tomorrow is bloodwork and another appointment with the psychologist, which I am looking forward to, actually! Then Tuesday I have an appointment with my surgeon, that I made at the time when I thought I was stopping chemo. We are then leaving Tuesday night for Omaha to be ready for an appointment with a new doctor to us, through the wonderful assistance of Chris Ireland and Jan Velander. That appointment is Wednesday. I hopefully will find out more about the recent reports and if I am going to have more testing or what the plan is from here. I will, hopefully, no more tomorrow.
It was interesting, this morning, we didn't make it to church. We were all resting this afternoon, and I just had this strong urge to go to church. So I popped out of bed, threw on some nicer clothes and told Doug I was going to church. He was asleep and not all there when I told him this. I am really glad I went, and the mass really pertained to me. Father talked about loving your neighbors and doing things to help people in need. Of course, this made a lot of sense to me, I have been "the one in need" lately. There was a great verse and I said it over and over in church but of course, now I can't remember it. ugh. I believe I went for a reason, not that there isn't usually a reason to go, but this time more so, ya know.
I am looking forward to this week, getting more answers and getting closer to what we are going to do about this new development! Let's hit God hard with all the prayers, thank you! I will keep you posted. Shawndra
