Finally...

Carol got her meds yesterday but not from the
manufacturer. They denied assistance.
I was told to call the pharmacy that supplied the
chemo for the past year.
I don't understand it but they are charging her
less than  ten bucks co-pay and sent it 'next day'.
No idea how long this deal will last but we'll take it
with a grateful and humble 'thank you'.

I can relax a bit and look forward to the sunshine
forecast for the next week.

Looks like I missed November...

Here, not in real life.

Carol spent several days in the hospital with cellulitis.
No idea where it came from, just another issue to keep
an eye out for due to a compromised immune system.
Add it to the list.

She may have to have surgery on her lower eye lids.
They've curled down some and that lets her eyes get
too dry which, over time, can cause damage to the corneas.
She's using special drops but a surgeon will make a
recommendation after a consultation after xmas. 
Supposedly, this is not a side-effect of the chemo.

We're trying to get co-pay assistance from the
manufacturer of her chemo drug. She received a grant last
year that covered it but it ran out this month. The paperwork
and red tape seem to take forever. The co-pay is over
$1000 per month. We should hear if her application has
been accepted by the end of the week. Fingers crossed. 
She will always need chemo to keep the cancer from spreading. 

I try to read a lot to keep my brain busy. 
It works most of the time.

Thanksgiving was nice.

Lake Street Dive...












You're not excited about my book choices, 
maybe you'll like some music
Lead singer sounds, to me anyway, like a
cross between Bonnie Raitt and Carly Simon. 
The song 'Good Kisser' is killer. 
G'head, lissssssssssten.

An excellent book...

The life and career of David Fairchild.

Did you know that the Chilean translation
of "avocado" is "testicle"? 

Did you know the Incas ate quinoa and
that it is a cousin to spinach?

You can't send flowers to a post office box...


Wherever I was, it wasn't here. No snow.
But yet, in the fenced yard, I saw a polar bear wandering.
I kept checking the gate to make sure it couldn't escape.
I sensed other large animals in the yard but didn't see them,
so I don't know what they were.
I started looking for the bathroom and that's when I woke up.
Sure enough, I had to pee. 

Dreams are weird.

I miss blogging. The way it used to be.
Thank goodness there are some of you still out there.
I'm not ready to give up yet, either.
