Chemo side effects: Same as ever. Yes, that bad. calendula_witch arrives tomorrow evening. shelly_rae will miss this infusion cycle. H— came over yesterday and did some household chores, as well as making a delightful dinner. Life goes on.

tillyjane a/k/a my mom: Angiogram today. Her youngest sister, my Aunt M— flies in this afternoon. It will be a delight to see my Baby Aunt, but the circumstances could be more fortuitous. She will be a great lift to tillyjane's spirits. Assuming no further unexpected medical events, tillyjane should be release from the hospital tomorrow.

For my part, Not Writing continues, to my immense frustration. The combination of stress, fatigue, and time spent at the hospital is eating all available spoons plus some deficit.

I'm sorry, I really am. You've had a lot to go through, especially recently. We will make sure Shelly has an enjoyable weekend, at any rate, so one thing off the plate.

Writing will come back. You're just exhausted. Emotionally, physically, in every way. Be gentle on yourself with all you're dealing with, as frustrating as it is.

Yeah, I know. More annoying advice you already know. :-)

Hugs and love.
