So Jordon I have been married 20 years today. We checked out of the Holiday Inn early this morning and headed to RUH where Jordon was scheduled for a surgical procedure to fix his port. Once that was done, we went to the Saskatoon Cancer Clinic for his chemo treatment. While we were there a pharmacist and dietician came up to chat with Jordon and I. It was good. They are changing his medication a bit… he will get a new ant nauseous pill and they talked about medicinal marijuana which Jordon doesn’t want to try.
After chemo we often go for lunch but Jordon just wanted to go home. He really wasn’t feeling well and was really nauseous today. After he had a nap, we took the kids out for dinner. Jordon wasn’t up for a fancy meal and only ate a bite and a bit while out tonight. He would have wasted a nicer meal. He also had some serious problems with his hands and mouth with the chemo neuropathy. Like a lot of cancer patients, he is super sensitive to cold to the point where he can’t drink cold drinks early in his chemo cycle but tonight, even the cold air bothered him and caused his tongue to swell.
We dropped the boys off at home, went to Lawson Heights Mall and then Peavey Mart where we picked up some LED string light for the tree. These will blink and fade in and out and basically make the tree more animated. Jordon and our local councillor later were mocked by Peavey Mart’s social media person which was pretty funny.
Gord Downie died today. It drove home that this could be the last anniversary we might have together. I really hope it isn’t. It was still a nice day. I hope we have many, many more.
