- My mom's cancer has returned and in response to some kick-your-ass chemo treatments she's been moved to the rehab section of a nursing home to go through physical and occupational therapy.
- My full-time job was reduced to part-time due to the restructuring (read: layoffs and downsizing) at my company.
- The doctors will make some adjustments and give her a smaller dose of the truly nasty chemo with longer breaks in between the treatments. She's been reacting well to the other meds. The lumps around her jaw/neck have gone down considerably since starting chemo. She's able to eat again and is even gaining weight.
- I STILL have a job and now have more time to spend with Bug during the week. And with the new work schedule, I'll be able to go back to the Midwest and visit my mom again soon.
Now I think I'll fill the glass with wine.
