w1/d5, pt

This is the first Monday since September without therapy. And five days into cool-down and still no sigh of a curve in the road.

Tomorrow is weekly doctor check-in. Can’t come too soon. Have got to get the pain meds worked out right. I’m walking around way too groggy. But for as strong as they are supposed to be, I can’t imagine how much pain they are handling.

    Hang in there, Freddie! Continue to look to the horizon. That curve in the road will eventually come into view. Love to you!

    I realize this tidbit may have little relevance with your circumstances so take it for what it is. After each of my c-sections the pain seemed like it would never let up. Each time at one week post op, the pain seemed to significantly drop and then a steady decline after that point in time. For #2, #3 and #4, I was able to mentally envision one week post op as my turning point and it helped me cope. It was like a switch was flipped one week post op and I could count on it like clock work.

    Soon Winter will be over and the Spring flowers will look more beautiful then they ever have before. The reds will be more red, the yellows more yellow. The sun on your face will shed a warmer warmth. Yes, soon Winter will be over!

    Fred: Saw exceptionally high end chocolate in a very high-end take-out joint with eccelectic coffees too. Made me smile thinking of your post weeks ago. It’s the little things that are special and memorable. Hoping you will soon request such items be forwarded. Awaiting your download on pain meds. I trust the daily recovery–albeit slower than any would like–is going to be noticeable post the several week period you mentioned that metabolism and cell function continue to be affected by chemo and especially radiation. Luv ya mon.

    Hey you guys: Steve Friends. You know what? I wanted to use those words MFC
    and I appreciate your doing so for me. Steve did not log in today. It gives this mother
    great comfort to hear the strong voices of you men who know and love Steve. If Steve is tired maybe we could just……log in. Of course, the women are always empathic. and that is such a good thing. Good night Steve. I am just holding hands with all your friends and loved ones. We all want to do that bike ride in San Francisco with you, good fellow.

    Bringing back memories seeing Macy’s day parade on Television. Loved last year when we came to NY for Thanksgiving day and went out on the streets and saw Kermit & Spiderman floating down the streets. It was great being with you and Gladys and I would love to do it again. Love you Steve and Glayds
