Even though we each become a bit uncommunicative at times while we ponder what we're going through, we always come back together again. He was a bit unapproachable this past weekend after receiving news that his former mother-in-law had passed away. He was not close to her, but he was and continues to be close to his former brother-in-law; therefore, he is feeling his pain right now and reminiscing about the death of his own mother. Today, he has to go for blood tests and psyche himself up for his next chemo (tomorrow) when his oncologist will only give him one of the three drugs he has been on. Fingers crossed the side effects will not undermine his health.
This past week, I managed to get the tree up and decorated. Our Princess Tegan was very curious about all the boxes we pulled out and the strange thing now standing in the corner. But she had been uncannily good about not poking about and stealing anything. I've invited my single sister to come for Xmas Day with the two of us and she is delighted to be invited. If Lorne needs to rest in the afternoon, we'll be able to have a nice time together - take Tegan for a little walk or even go to a matinee. It will be a nice quiet, unexcitable day - just what we need this year.
Here are a few fun photos: on the left is Lorne's oldest glass Xmas tree ball and on the right is mine.
This is an ornament my sister gave me one year, just for fun!
