She’s Back! – April 30, 2005 – Day 23

What a difference a day makes. When I last wrote Lis wasn’t really coherent. She was like that on Wednesday, Thursday, and half of the day on Friday. When I saw her last night (Friday) she was good. Laughing, joking, looking like someone doped up on drugs but fun to be around.

Quick note: Lukas is here in the “office” with me as I type. He woke up when I tried to transfer him from car seat to bed. Now he’s fascinated with my typing and wants to come over here and watch me. He’s so cute! His eyes so big and blue!

Okay, back to the real stuff. Today Lis was again in good shape. She was awake, cracking jokes and still quite doped up but looked great. It made me feel so good. I love it! I love her! She is getting kind of weird though. She forgets things right away, like she forgot what bandanna she was wearing and didn’t know where it was when an hour earlier she was wearing it. She didn’t remember me telling her about the hat the Boss Lady bought her. I had told her twice earlier in the week. She didn’t remember us telling her about the rice and beans we had bought her at Ixtapas on Friday. So she didn’t know there was stuff for her. And she didn’t remember the hats that my coworker brought and the fact that I had visited her the past couple of days. That was disheartening and very hard to see and hear.

But she looks great. Her scab from her blister is healing perfectly. Maria, the nurse, said it looked wonderful and that it was such a good sign that her body was healing.

Oh yah, and we got good news. Eliana got her Visa. So now her Mom, Elen and Eliana have their Visas. Sogra and Elen should be here this week. I’m so excited. It’s going to be great…so great to have them here for Lis. It makes me so happy.

I better get going to bed. I’m tired and Lukas is starting to fuss. I think he’s bored. Oh yah, we found that he’s got teeth. They were finally right, he is teething. It’s kinda neat but bad timing. hehe!

  3. God Bless you and your family! This cancer stuff is just horrible and will never understand it. I lost my step-father to the disease and just had to tell you that I wish you all the strenth in the world. Your wife seems to be a strong woman herself and with a good husband by her side, she will overcome this battle. Beautiful family you have there!
