Back to Normal

This time it took me three days to get back to “normal” after chemo. Today is Tuesday and I feel pretty good. Yesterday we went down to Galveston to the Social Security office and signed up for Social Security. I had held off because I was working but now it doesn’t look like I’ll be working very much. We went for a walk on the seawall and had lunch at the Mosquito Café. Nice day.

Today I’m going to edge and mow the yard. It’ll be interesting to see if I can do the whole thing without wearing out. The weather’s pretty nice – cloudy but warmish – so I want to take advantage of the day. Verva’s spending the afternoon at the university in her pottery studio – it’s a nice break for her and she’s very talented.

P.S. Yard work went well – edged and mowed and then took a nap in the hammock.

Tough life.

Jeez Bob, I don't mean any offense to you or others by this, but you sure make having cancer sound easy... even relaxing!

Thanks for your note on my blog too - we'll keep you up to date on the new arrival as soon as he gets here. We heard you guys will be at Bodega Bay next month. I wish we could join you! It takes me back to the "good old days" for sure.

Bob, The last time we spoke, you were in Baton Rouge for a Cold Eyes Review and preparing for retirement. I was dismayed when I heard about your cancer. I had met your daughter, Katy, several months ago when she joined the Process Control community and we attended a Gulf Coast Leadership Team meeting. I didn't know the connection until our most recent meeting last week.
After reading some of your blogs, I see you have a great attitude (as I would have expected) and you're meeting the challenge head-on. I just wanted to send you a note to let you know that I'm another one of many who are pulling for you.
