Today my fibromyalgia kicked me in the rear, and I stayed home from Church. Unfortunately that meant the kids stayed home, too. Wes, feeling great, walked the 1.5 miles to Church.
But for supper we had a couple come to visit us who live in another state, whom we have been friends with since before we were each married. (In fact, their wedding was just about three weeks before ours, the same summer). It was so good to visit! They are the types of friends who are friends for life, that you just pick up with again where you left off and there's really no "leaving off" even if we have not seen each other in a few years.
Tomorrow, thankfully, is an ordinary day. I'll just get up, take Maia to work and then take Wes to work. After that, I have to go get my blood draw done, so that my doctor can have lab reports on how I'm doing with my various health concerns. That's what so weird and difficult: Just because Wes has cancer does not mean I don't still have thyroid disease and fibromyalgia that I have to manage. Just because Wes has cancer does not mean Bethany doesn't still have her autism and mental health issues to contend with. Just because Wes has cancer doesn't make the world stop.
I think the world should stop.
But I'm so glad tomorrow is fairly normal I hope I can go for a swim in the afternoon. I desperately need the exercise.
On Tuesday the extra doctor appointments start for Wes. But tomorrow I'm going to hang on to ordinary as tight as I can.
