This weekend was a complete wash. The weather was rainy and Melissa did not feel well. Saturday night, we ended up going out on the town, Cancer style, with a late night run to the ER. She was running a fever and had a bad cough. She also had not eaten in 24 hours and was sick to her stomach. We headed out at 1am Sunday morning for the ER. She got spend most of Sunday at the hospital, running blood tests, lung scans, and many other tests. Long story short, she left the hospital Sunday afternoon with a few new medications.
It had been some time since our last hospital trip. Hopefully, it will be the last for a long time. I can say, though, she seemed quite content this hospital trip...insistent, even, that we go to the ER. That is when you KNOW she is not feeling good.
We have a pretty important doctors appointment Wednesday afternoon. Hopefully, it will provide Melissa with some much needed motivation to get back on her feet again. No one knows how they will handle cancer until they have it, so it is impossible for me to say that "if that was me, I would..."...but I think despite what I or anyone has or will do, it is well past time for her to get back to some level activity, no matter how tired she might feel. You just can't wait to live...you just have to get out there and do it.
