Being away....

Sunday, July 22, 2018

Hello friends,

Sorry to have been absent for so long. I've been "flashing" on when able at least to log my food and exercise and spin those wheels. That's about all I've had time for.

DH had his surgery this past Monday and is doing well. His doctor said we made a good decision in selecting the surgery right away. The spot they'd found on the prostate wasn't at all normal. They think they were able to remove all of ANY Cancer before it had spread. They took the lymph nodes surrounding the prostate as well, just in case.
Of course, he'll need to be watched over the next few years. Expected since my endocrinologist keeps tabs on me since my thyroid was taken a few years back.

DH is beginning the second week staying home from work. I worry about him, especially since I've been working 11 hour days and can only keep tabs with texts. Our daughter is here when she can be and does any of the heavy stuff that he can't do.
He goes back to the doctor tomorrow, hopefully, to remove the catheter. The one thing that he was so concerned about prior to this surgery. He's finding that it's not as bad as he'd thought it would be but will be happy once it's gone anyway.

Now, his main worry is getting back to our marriage bed. Has kind of been my concern as well. We've been together for over 40 years. Our 38th anniversary is coming up in September in fact. Time certainly does fly, doesn't it?

BIG THANKS to those of you who keep dropping by leaving goodies and encouraging comments on my page. You all are very much appreciated!! emoticon emoticon

In the meantime, I'm trying to work on myself AND still take care of him, so it may be a while yet before you see me regularly again. There's just no time in the day for me. Work is work, of course. The overtime, at least, will help pay down some bills.

Have a great week to come, and know that I think of you and pray for you all every day.
Peace and Blessings.
Jules
