Rough Week but Trying to Keep My Chin Up

January 22nd, 2016 at 02:19 am

This week my FIL (who I love like a father) was diagnosed with cancer, we lost 7 less than week old rabbit kits, and one of our hens jumped the fence and got eaten by a dog. I have an ingrown toenail that is driving me crazy and I think it is infected and I can't get in sooner than the 28th. I still have bronchitis. My knee is acting up. My son has to get a CT scan next week. And I am just ready for the week to be over.

On the bright side, and I do have one, I have lost 4 pounds this week. I found a toaster and can opener in teal to match my sea glass Kitchenaid mixer, and I found a gorgeous tablecloth with matching linen napkins, dish cloths, and hand towels that all match the teal, turquoise, and blue theme I am aiming towards. My kitchen is clean, really, really clean, all the way down to its bones and so is my bedroom.

My marriage is good. My daughter started her college classes online this week. My son is doing well with his online high school home school classes. I sold 2 dozen duck eggs, 1 dozen turkey eggs, and a buck breeding rabbit, and feel like I made a friend in the lady I sold him to.

I am trying to keep my chin up while we learn more about what will have to happen with FIL. They do think treatment will work, but I don't really have any details yet.

I'm totally ready for February now, though.

    I'm very sorry to hear about your FIL, I hope that remission is possible, it's not too advanced? I get ingrown toenails at times too and find that trying to cut the nail as straight as possible is helpful and soaking it in a bath for 10 mins and then filing it down/trying to pull it out when it's softened works too. And if it's infected keep putting antiseptic on it. Good luck.

    Sorry about all the bad luck, especially your FIL's diagnosis. There are many types of cancers that are treatable these days; I hope he is in that group.
