Well today is Fran and Rosies last day in Chicago. Thankfully, they will be back in about 10 days. I was told I could go back to Texas, but they didn’t advise it since I’ve had this virus and chemo. My body is just exhausted, so I didn’t put up much of an argument. This morning was a rough for me. I felt like I took 5 steps back. the nausea and headache were bad. I took some nausea meds, but was trying to lay off the pain pills. I layed down and fell asleep at about 9:00 and at about 10:30, I was awaken by a maniac with a laundry fetish. For all those care givers out there…. Please note: Even if you love laundry and the hotel decides to remodel the laundry room, closing it for a week without giving anyone notice, it is NOT OK to wake the person you are giving care to out of a dead sleep for laundry details. Laundry in no way constitutes an emergency. I am not going to mention who did this….
After I was jarred awake like the building was on fire, I decided it was time for those pills. We stayed in the room for a bit and at about noon I decided I needed to get out of the room. We went to Eataly again and I forced myself to eat. Surprisingly that helped, a lot. Rosie was in heaven because her favorite food is salami.
We then walked a bit and headed back to the room. Tonight, we are hanging out and I am watching Fran repack their suitcases for the 18th time. It’s amazing the lengths she will go through to avoid checking a bag. 😄. It’s kinda awesome!
Rosie told me she is sad she is leaving and she is going to miss me, “but the internet here stinks”! I don’t blame her. It really , REALLY does stink.
Tomorrow is Mobilization Day 6 and the dreaded pills and shots start at 7:00AM. My brother Tom is also flying in for the week. So there will be a ton to blog about.
Hope everyone has a great Friday! Chicago is jumping tonight!
PS – Happy Birthday Uncle Dan! We love you!!!
