Hard to believe that Celeste's rehearsal was a week ago tonight...and tomorrow she and Anthony will have been married for one whole week! Woo hoo!
As for Harv this week, we have changed his meds to a long acting pain med twice a day and he has not needed any pain meds for breakthrough pain. The nurse came yesterday and asked what his pain level was and he said "zero." So that's good.
He has slept quite a bit. He gets up in the morning and has a small bowl of cereal and then goes back to bed around 9:30 or 10:00... And pretty much sleeps until almost dinner time. Then he's up until bedtime (9:30 or 10:00). He sleeps pretty well at night even though he gets up a couple of times.
When the nurse was here, she took his blood pressure and discovered that it's very low... so he stopped taking his high blood pressure meds and hopefully that will give him a little boost. I kinda think his steroid is helping ever-so-slightly with his appetite. Still doesn't eat much, but wants tastes more often, I think.
His mind is a little fuzzy sometimes and it takes a little longer to process things lately, but he's still alert and occasionally conversational.
When Harv was a young thing, he worked for years at Kumsheen Rafting Resort in Lytton, BC (his hometown, for those of you who don't already know.) If you haven't been to Kumsheen, I recommend that you check it out next summer. Anyway! They're having a big reunion this weekend. He really wanted to go. He was really looking forward to seein' all his old buddies. After the nurse's visit yesterday, though, we decided it was just too big of an event followed very soon after a very big event. She thought it was a bit too much to tackle for now.
SO! All you Kumsheen people! Know that Harvey loves you! And, even though he's not into Skype-ing, he is with you in spirit...and has very fond memories of those river-raftin' days!!! Thank you all for all of the fun and the great memories you have provided for him.
Many blessings to all of you people out there!
Lots of love!
