Well, here I am… the procedure went as well as it could have, I guess. Other than the fact that he was late and then he started before the freezing had a chance to fully take hold! He’s pretty certain he got it all but nothing can determine that better than the pathology report. So I still hold my breath for another 10 days or so until the pathology report arrives.
I spent the rest of the day resting though I didn’t have the opportunity to sleep because my mom was called to the nursing home because my grandma wasn’t doing well.
I have been extremely fatigued the last several days. I’ve been going to bed early and waking up as late as possible.
Overall, today is about the best day I’ve had so far.
I spent 2 hours at the home visiting my sleeping grandmother. She is palliative. Her lights are off and there are two carts in the room… one holding water, juice, coffee and tea as well as lemon loaf and vanilla wafers. The other cart holds a CD player, a diffuser, lotion, an adult colouring book, gum and a number of other “comfort” items. That’s really cool and it is comforting.
It’s just sad to know that her life is not only ending but ending in this way. A woman who used to be so active and vibrant (though she had her share of “complaints” about the world) is now less than 100lbs and her body is shutting down.
So as though I haven’t had enough going on with my own body, I will likely be spending more time at a funeral home than I’d prefer sometime in the next couple of weeks. It doesn’t seem like it will be long. Like the nurse said, she has her own agenda, all we can do is make her as comfortable as possible and let it run its course.
My emotional roller coaster continues…
