Another week has gone by. The biggest event was Sasha's second chemo treatment which went much more easily than the first one. Fair Isle Animal Clinic gave us a room for the morning and I was able to hold Sasha all the time except for the two actual treatments when her oncologist held her and she burrowed her head into the oncologist's shoulder and was ok. Sasha therefore got lots of loving and I know that made a difference. Her anti-nausea medicine is now in a form where I just have to rub it in her ear and that is much more pleasant for us both and much more effective as well, so she is eating just fine so far. Next chemo will be May 6th, as long has her blood work is good. We are now half way with just two more treatments to go.
No real construction this week so nothing to report there. Leigh will be back from visiting her mom on Tuesday and then things will move forward again. But the electrical inspection did happen this past Tuesday and of course passed just fine.
My son, Eric, ran a 50 mile endurance run yesterday, the Zane Grey 50 in AZ, and he did very well. It was apparently hotter than last year and so more of a challenge, but he tweeted that he ran a smart race and that should help him in his training for his next 100 mile race, the Bighorn in mid-June.
Otherwise, life continues. I'm fighting with depression yet again--sort of a constant with me, I know. Can't decide what to do with the day, and wondering about the big existential questions. As I tweeted this morning: does existence need to be justified? If so, how? If not, why? But I suspect, as my therapist keeps reminding me, this too will sort and pass. That's this week's update and I promise more news and photos and good cheer in the next post. Hope life is treating you all very well indeed.
