26th Sep 2007

On Thursday, last week, Mrs D had her 3rd session of chemo. She felt O.K. to go to work the following day, but by the evening she was feeling very tired and decided to have an early night. Much of the week-end was then spent in bed. Unlike the first two sessions of chemo, this latest session has really knocked her about a bit, although with each passing day, she is feeling a little bit better. Hopefully she’ll soon have recovered sufficiently to tackle the task I’ve set aside for her this coming weekend. While we were at the hospital on last Thursday, some B*astard trying to do a 3-point turn demolished 1/2 the wall fronting our drive ….

Repairing this wall should be well within Mrs D’s capabilities (no need to climb a ladder either).

I shall be on hand, of course, to offer sage advise and the occasional glass of Merlot!

    so the Mrs. is the real fix-it person in this marriage? Shame on you!

      You misunderstand me , DF

      I let Mrs D do all the DIY jobs round the house (whenever she’s got a free moment from doing the housework, shopping, and gardening) as a favour – to broaden her skills base 😉

    Ah but Duncs is the exercise type. That elbow of his is as fit as a fiddle 😀

    Hello Dunc! I continue to read each and every one of your posts about the Mrs., but I need to ask….how is she currently?

      Not good, YnB

      She’s beaten all the odds so far, but we’re getting near the end of the road now.

      I’ve been working from home since June so I can nurse her here rather than she spend her last days in a hospice.

      We’re just hoping she can hang on another few weeks to have one last Xmas with family and friends.

      Though there’s only a few more weeks till Xmas – some days those few weeks seem like an impossibly long way off.

      Still, as long as we both have breathe we’ll continue to fight on
