Day 7 – Restful day   October 13th, 2011

From Linda…

Jake said he felt less agitated today compared to yesterday. He got a good round of naps and no extra IVs today. His doctors congratulated him on a good boring recovery day and having a good attitude. :-)

Today Krystyana and I visited the National Gallery of Art to see the special exhibit of Italian Drawings which Jake had already seen about a month ago. We hit the supermarket on the return to stock up on microwave Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup for Jake, plus food to cook for the rest of us at the Lodge.

I took Jake for a pre-dinner walk – three laps around unit. After dinner of beef broth with extra roast beef bits added to it, another three laps around the unit. I suggested a marathon next week – 26 laps!

Tomorrow is another boring day, highlighted by laundry for all.

Making my nightly rounds :-)

Nappy boredom is good for the hardworking lymphocytes! I keep having the image of Pack-man chasing through the maze, gobbling up his enemies after eating a power pellets….with that goofy music in the background!
Glad that you and Yana got to see the drawings. A dose of art is good for the soul! Hugs, Dara

Peaceful and boring sounds wonderful! Congratulations!! We loved the Mohawk do!! However, bald men always have a special place in my heart (esp. Martin!), so have no fear – bald is beautiful and it’s nice to see your face!

There was an inspirational story on the news about a chef who has suffered cancer – Hans Rueffert – and he is in 6th year of remission – he has written a cookbook and I thought you and Linda would like to know about him (33 yrs old when diagnosed -stage 3 gastric), his story (terribly tough, like yours), and his super healthy and cancer oriented recipes.

I am thankful that you, Linda and the kids are all together – and Jana’s photos were great! Thank you to each of you for sharing, and I hope that knowing how much we all care and think of you all every day offers strength and comfort as you each cope.

Hugs from Bonaire – xoxoxox – forsa!
