6.11.11 Saturday: Today I flew to New Mexico. While waiting for our plane to load I looked out the window and saw the plane next to us, which brought a smile. I must be an "old bag" or a "bag lady" I obviously wasn't a "free bag" because I had to pay. Or maybe I was paying in order to have a window.
6.12.11 Sunday: This time I’m staying at my mom’s and Bella’s house. Bella felt it her prerogative to check out my computer bag and make sure there was no contraband smuggled into her house.
6.13.11 Monday: Hmmm. No pictures from the day. This week I’m in charge of getting Mom to all her therapy and doctors’ appointments, eating, weight, blood sugar, and medications.
6.14.11 Tuesday: Tuesdays are Mom’s heavy days. Along with her regular radiation treatments she also sees her cadre of medical doctors and her dietitian. In this week’s appointments every one of the doctors expressed their amazement at how well Mom was doing. She's over her half way mark and is experiencing no symptoms from the chemo or radiation.
6.15.11 Wednesday: I gave my camera the day off today. Mom and I took some time to visit with my sister and her husband and Jedi. He was excited to see me and had to sit in my lap.
6.16.11 Thursday: Mom is feeling tied down. She’s been longing for a trip. Before all this came down she had a tour booked, but unfortunately had to cancel. So we took a little field trip today to a Mercado. It was a big supermarket which caters to the Mexican clientele. Tamales - beef, pork, chicken, cheese; piñatas; chilies – red, green, jalapeno, hot, spicy, bags and bags of them; tortillas in several sizes; a meat counter with all kinds of weird cuts of meat, even a large skinned cow’s head complete with eyeballs and tongue hanging out ready to lick its lipless teeth. I wish I could have taken a picture, but there were guards posted all over that weren’t friendly to my camera. I learned that after I took the picture of all the sweet bread like the kind my grandma would give us when I was growing up. That guard was mean. We bought a sweet bread for each of us and had them for dessert. Delicious!
6.17.11 Friday: Over the last few days I’d spent a few hours a day at my sister’s house and helped her organize her scrapbook room. This time we tackled her big cupboard.
May your week be filled with love and strengthened family relationships.
Ciao y baci mis amicos,
