How is Cheri?
David and the CoolCyberCats
We're having a lot of trouble getting a doctor to see her before January, which is just way too far off. There's a lot of back pain that comes and goes, especially if she stands too long. For unknown reasons no one will prescribe pain medication. Helps a lot when she lays down, which she does a lot lately. She's finally getting her sugar more under control for the first time ever. That helps a lot in how she feels generally. And yeah, I'm worried to death. John
Any luck on a doctor appt?
Not yet. Seems cancer is a fairly popular didease right now. She can always get in to the emergency room or see a general practicioner, but of course they can't really do anything. We'll keep hammering at it.
Of all the crazy things, she was supposed to have jury duty this morning and was worried about the pain coming on while she had to wait. Thankfully they canceled it last night. John
Hi John, How was your thanksgiving and how is Cheri doing?
Hey David, thanks for asking. Cheri's feeling pretty rough. Getting in to see a doctor is maddening. She hasn't been outside the house since before Thanksgiving. Too tired to walk anywhere and can't stand long before the pain sets in. Spends a lot of time in bed because it doesn't hurt when she lays down.
I'm a little worn out taking up the slack. I only sleep a couple hours before I have to get up to get the kids ready for school, then sleep a few more hours. Every day there are trips downtown to pick up medicine or groceries, and I haven't done grocery shopping in years. I'm not very good at it. We seem to go through more laundry than a laundramat and that's something else I'm not used to doing. Then there's trying to keep the house straight, which is not easy with 2 kids who were raised, quite literally, in a barn.
I spent Thanksgiving with Cheri's family so the kids could go. Cheri spent almost that whole day in bed. Of course, I brought home leftovers, and she ate quite a lot of it. She's up now, on her computer. Always glad to see her up and around, even if she doesn't feel great. John
