Thank you so for your well wishes!
The results of DH's scan were pretty good, overall. One of the lynch nodes has grown slightly, but Dr. Lee isn't concerned. They'll do another CAT in 90 days; suppose it's best our doctors are being pro-active. (Either that or they like my company's insurance!)
I was more than a little nervous this time, on account Tom's been experiencing some shortness of breath and increased coughing.
... then near daylight I had to chide myself for my ridiculous mental preparations.
It's always the same story:
We sit in the little exam room, examining the ceiling tiles like they contain a dark secret. Our eyes roam here and there; everywhere but at one another. Then, the magi appears and I'm intrigued all over again by his footwear. Today's moccasins are a buttery caramel that look soft as a baby's bottom. So I'm sitting all prim and focused with my little notebook, when all I want to do is caress his right shoe leather.
BTW, last night's concert totally blew away any expectations I may have harbored. Even Tom (who I suspect came along for the ride) said it was one of the best shows he's ever seen. Have you ever heard of frozen cheesecake on a stick - and red wine - served at concert venues? Tom enjoyed his drizzled with hot fudge. Thank you, but I take my 'dago red' straight up. (smile)
I was initially dismayed that our seats - so carefully chosen on line - afforded us MAYBE a quarter view of the stage. The fellow beside us was nearly apopletic: "For what I paid, this is *****! I'm going to Guest Services and give them a piece of my mind.). His poor wife just sunk a little lower in her seat. I was tempted - just for a minute - to offer her some wine.
Instead, I put on my 'nice' face and asked an usher -- if if our section wasn't totally full, might we move down a bit. He did better than that, and exchanged our tickets for two on the 4th row. Woo-hoo!
Well, it's back to the office tomorrow, for one more day. I could get used to these abbreviated work weeks!
Enjoy your Friday, my friends!
