Today it's December, another month gone, the old year is ending . . . sorry, have John Lennon's "Happy Christmas" running through my head. Things have been kind of depressing lately, haven't they? Terrorist attacks, world wide fears, numerous people I know of ill, in pain, or suffering. Trying to keep a bright outlook but it's difficult at the moment. I've got a headache and not sure if it's moving toward a migraine or just stress. Was over at Dad's again last evening. June was feeling weak and anxious/depressed. Having gotten through what we expected to be the worst - the surgery and radiation - with a good attitude and little depression or anxiety, this is coming as a surprise to us. I'm afraid it reminds me of when my Mom had a good spell and then her sudden decline. June doesn't understand what is happening to her. Sunday I insisted she contact her doctor on Monday and let the doctor know she was no better. She was told to discontinue the Xanax she was given by urgent care doc for anxiety, but continue the Lexapro for depression and come in today. She asked that I go along because I have training in medical terminology etc and can help her understand what the doctor says. I can't help but remember the spell Mom went through that was similar to this and learning shortly after that her cancer had metastasized to the brain. Even though June's last scan showed no sign of cancer, I wonder. It's a horrible and sneaky disease! And my father is looking so worn out too; he's worried. My husband is having a nuclear stress test today but insisted I go with June. His test shouldn't take more than half an hour and he feels certain it's unnecessary. With all the various things going on, I'm feeling unsettled, as though something bad is going to happen and soon. I hope that isn't a premonition just worry and fatigue.
and a pack of buttons and brads:
I hope you like these. This is a busy season for everyone but I will have to clean out old 2015 files from sharing servers to make way for new 2016 things. I'm going to extend the deadline for links until 1/15/2016 after which the old stuff won't be available.
Stay safe as you scurry about shopping, decorating, visiting and so on. Hugs!
