Tomorrow is Don's birthday.
He said, "Let's save these gifts for when I get home from the hospital." That made me sad. I hate when birthdays are tainted by illness or pandemics or accidents or surgeries...
FaceTime Party on Sunday
But on Sunday evening, we had a 2-hour birthday gathering, with our kids!
Before Covid, we never would have thought to do this! Thank you Pandemic, for teaching us how to connect with our faraway family! We had the best time talking and sharing and laughing... and yes, singing. Baby Charlie clapped along when we sang Happy Birthday.
Birthday Dinner on Sunday
Don was wise enough, to know he wouldn't much enjoy birthday dinner on Monday night... the night before his "birthday surgery".
So I made him spaghetti and meatballs for Sunday. Might as well. Who knows what diet restrictions will be in the future.
Don blew out his candles, while he wore his sushi shirt. I didn't ask him to tell me his wish.
I'm glad we celebrated a little on Sunday. Monday was blah as we anticipated Tuesday's surgery. Don went to pre-op. I met the plumbers at the house. We got all our other house renovations put on hold. That's what you do in times of Cancer, Covid, Coronary Bypass... You adjust and reschedule and refocus.
Tonight was quiet. Don watched a little Monday Night Football. We are both ready to get tomorrow behind us!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
