Another Monday down the drain, and Jerry's energy seems to have gone down the drain with it! He was doing SO GOOD, I almost forgot several times he isn't all better yet. He has been up before me in the morning and coming to bed after me at night. He watched a zillion hours of football -- fixed two leaky toilets -- went to the skin doctor and the hardware store -- worked several hours at the store Friday night fixing computer issues -- ate and ate and ate some more! -- and then, it started happening.
He took a shower yesterday morning. He came into the kitchen where I was working and handed me this:
I looked up at his head, and there were lots of bald spots on one side of his head. I felt so bad for him, but I didn't let on. I told him he still had a lot left.
He said, "Let's face it. It's time to shave my head. Will you please do it for me?"
I got out his electric hair-cutter-offer that has a guide on it, and I put the guide on as low as it would go without scalping him. I didn't want to shave him down to the skin, so I left about 1/8" all over. I love to run my hands around and around on it, and I call him Colonel Bernsides.
Fortunately, he has this really cool hat that I asked him to buy one time when we were at Bass Pro Shop. He doesn't really like it, but I think it looks amazing on him.
What do you think?
Tammy has knitted him a new cap, so he can wear it when we get back up to our other house.
he was doing SO GOOD.
I was feeding him ice cream and popcorn and cereal -- and that was after 9 PM!
He has gained about six pounds.
Right now, though, he is sound asleep and has been since we got home from our store about 3:30 today. He has a runny nose and a cough and chest congestion.
Says he doesn't feel like eating anything. I HATE that because he just gained weight!
REMEMBER, I just got over Bronchitis and the doctor said I was NOT contagious. If I wasn't contagious, how did he get it??????
Having bronchitis sure didn't stop ME from eating, however.
I swear, I will probably reach up out of my coffin at my funeral and ask for some chocolate!
I will call his doctor in the morning and see if there is anything he wants to do about this. 2nd Chemo treatment is this Wednesday.
And remember the boots I ordered from Zappos?
You DO know about Zappos, don't you? You order a BUNCH of shoes or boots, and they come to you the NEXT DAY. You have ONE YEAR to return them, and they pay the freight both ways. (Yes, I know they don't REALLY -- but... It makes it a whole lot easier to do returns even if I really am paying for them. You print out their label and slap it back on their box. Too simple.)
I ordered six pair, but I kept only two pair. I took my skirt to the store with me so I could try the boots on with it.
Here are the tree pair of boots I decided I liked.
Since Jerry is in bed already, I guess I'll go watch some videos on my laptop and get educated in some new jewelry project. I just ALMOST finished a new blouse. It is a Silhouette pattern, and it gave me all the usual fits! I'll explain when I get it done.
