Mr. Hotpants & Flo
Morning VP's...well unfortunately Rhonda had to jet home this morning but not before we had another "interesting" apartment living experience. It's never a dull moment around here! Most of you have probably, at one time or another, lived in an apartment or 2 and you know that most are NOT constructed to be sound proof. Do you know where I'm going with this yet? HUMMMMMM!
Well the guy above us, that we named "Jack," moved out a couple weeks ago. We actually thought he was rather heavy on his feet...well until this new guy moved in. It had to be a man because he pounds around up there and actually shakes the ceiling of our apartment so much that the lamps rattle!!! Last night when we were all trying to get to sleep Mr. Heavy was really moving around up there, pounding around and around and around. This guy is definitely not a ballet dancer!!
OK...so we all got to sleep...Finally! Brenda was feeling so miserable I was worried Mr. Big Foot was going to keep her up...she really needed to sleep. Thank heaven for meds!! Well around 2:00 or 2:30 this morning...I woke up again with Mr. Big Foot running around upstairs. Now I know it's Saturday night, but this was ridiculous. We all needed to sleep in #414 and Mr. #424 was just getting started. Dang! Just as I was about to get up and start pounding on the ceiling...I heard that old tell tale rhythmic movement of the upstairs floorboards. OH! For cryin out loud...Mr Hotpants and Flo were really going to town!! You just gotta laugh! Thank heaven Brenda didn't wake up. I can't even tell you how glad we'll be to get home!!!
So Rhonda and I got up at 5:30 am to get her off to the airport. Brenda was sleeping soundly so after a quick goodbye off we went. Brenda just needed to keep sleeping. Her strength has really been zapped over the last 2 weeks. Rhonda is such a love.
Today is laundry day and apartment cleaning day. Chemo-sabe is working hard on getting her nutrition up, getting rest, and getting CURED...she's working overtime on all that I can assure you. Her stamina is amazing but the edges of the envelope were sure pushed this last week...especially last Friday. Next week looks like a good time to try and recouperate. We only have one appointment each day (radiation) except for Wednesday when we see Dr Swartz and his yeam for the weekly appointment. Only 16 more radiation treatments to go.
Hope your weekend was a good one. Please say a prayer that Mr. Hotpants and Flo exhausted themselves last night and that they have to get up and work tomorrow so they'll behave and BE QUIET tonight.
Nurse Dee and Chemo-sabe
