We were to leave this morning for Boston for a family Hanukkah Party but the weather has changed our plans. It would be impossible for me to sit in the car for 4-5 hours, then through the party and another 1-2 hours to go home to the cape. My shoulder will not be able to endure this. I am disappointed since Jan’s cousins, aunts and uncles, and my kids will be there and I have not seen many of them in a long time.
If the weather is better tomorrow, we will head to the Cape for the week. I need to get out of this apartment and spend time with my kids. Hopefully I will see all four of them, their significant others, and Yonah while I am there. It is sad that I have this little grandson that I see so rarely but this is the way of our world.
For now, I am going to ice my shoulder and climb back into bed with a book. I am grateful that the pain is less this morning than last night, I am otherwise feeling good, and trying not to think about this lung situation until we have some answers. I must admit, I am scared. I am also mourning the fact that I will not be back at work and spending endless hours here in the apartment again.
