Waiting to start again

 So now we are waiting to start again, in a manner of speaking.

 The chemo was set to start again, but got pushed back so Robin could have her hysterectomy. That got pushed back a week for some reason or another. But now we are a week out from it again. Hopefully it will happen this time, because none of us want to keep waiting, since we would still be four weeks out from when they wanted to do another ultrasound.

 Hopefully it will be over and done, and the pathology will be clear on it. We are hoping for that, but our fortunes don't seem to go that way. We can still hope though.

 Also, I am rather lucky that my job is working with me for the time off I need in all of this. Many people can't say that. For all it's shortcomings, working for the government does have perks sometimes, and the leave time is one of them. Having a good administration above me is another one. My lieutenants and Captain and Warden are a good crew, and I can honestly say the last time that I had people above me that cared that much, it was when I was on active duty.

 We are a week out from surgery (again) and a few weeks out from chemo starting again. We have a lot of road ahead of us still.

 If you could say a prayer, if that's what you do, for four children who just lost their mother, and a husband who just lost his wife, I would ask that you could. That is my biggest fear right now, and a friend of my sister-in-law's just died, leaving behind a young family. From Influenza. Sometimes God kills Mothers, because he has to. The wicked and profane seem to live on though, just watch the news.


  1. always praying. anytime i can do anything to help, please let me know.
