Too tired to type

We have snow, now turning to ice, AND still have power…. very, very thankful (although preparations are all made for when it goes out in the middle of the night – oxygen in tanks for when the concentrator makes this REALLY LOUD alarm when it’s not getting any electricity, internal batteries charged in the tube feeding pumper and the monitor… )  But even though this is just the first week of a three week weekly chemo cycle, the toxicity of it all is cumulative and I am tired, and also having significant pain management issues.  I know it doesn’t seem like a lot, to move some photos and get the right words with the right pictures, but truly, it’s more than I can do at the moment.   I probably could have done it easily and efficiently with  a little energy I found earlier but used it up managing wet snow clothes instead because the boys were so excited to be able to go sledding and play hockey.  But I have so much to tell you about, sock stories and a priceless George video “The snow is very cold.  I don’t like it”   … but they are going to have to wait until I don’t feel quite so darn bad.  Please forgive me.  I did, however, get several more inches knit on my Aunt Nancy’s socks, and they are quite pretty… a new Opal self-patterning yarn in purples, greys and greens.   Good night friends.  Please pray that the pain doesn’t keep me from getting some good sleep…. tomorrow will be lots more fun if I don’t feel so bad.
