Today is our 45th wedding anniversary. It's hard for me to believe how fast these years have gone. We have been through a lot and our lives have been blessed.
The Coke can was a pure accident. We went to a cute little deli in Hilton Head and they sat this down in front of my Hubby. Mine said Mom. But I thought it was perfect.
So what did we do today. Nothing, really nothing. Yesterday was a rotten day for both of us so we just stayed home. I did venture out to give our son's girlfriend a ride home from the ER. I sure have been spending a lot of time at hospitals lately.
Hubby got me beautiful roses. We had flowered delivered from our son and his wife and their daughter Mabel as well. She came to spend a little time here tonight. She loved Grampy's new big chair and made a beehive right for it. She and both doggies were on Grampy's lap.
We will go to church tomorrow and maybe go to a movie. We can celebrate anytime.
We are invited for dinner to our Mabel's house tomorrow evening.
Last week my friend fell and ended up in ER, then the hospital and now in rehab. She is 84. She is doing okay and hopefully will be home next week. Her sons live out of state so I have been helping her. She is very sweet and appreciative. We have been friends for almost 30 years. Yesterday was my Mom's appointment with the oncologist about her bone marrow biopsy results. Not good. I really didn't know how they could be. Her bone marrow is 80 percent involved. Chemo would help but she doesn't want it. I can't blame her. She is 88 . She basically has no immune system. Anything could take her. The doctor said she could live a year just like she is right now but if she gets an infection or has a fall it will be the end. Of course, she is determined that she will do what she wants so she started back driving and going shopping. The doctor said driving wasn't really a good idea as she could pass out. She said she wasn't giving up her home or her car and she would just pull over if she felt like she would pass out. See what we are dealing with. But it is her life and her choice on how she lives out her time. I wish she was easier to be around and that we were closer but we never have been. It is what it is.
How do I feel about all this. It's sad. It's scary. Just knowing that the end could happen anytime.
It's sad knowing that others in our family are also going through uncertain times. But you just keep living each day. Every day is a gift.
And 45 years of being married to this guy has been a gift and a blessing.
