Feeling a little blue

I'm feeling a little blue right now.

Mostly my worries about Thing2's health are not front-and-center for me, but sometimes it breaks through. Tonight I was cutting her hair, and when I looked at her face in the mirror, right next to mine, it was obvious that her face did not have a healthy rosy look to it.

She has been asleep for about 2-hours. I promised I would wake her up at 10 so she could take her night-time medicine, but when I tried to get her up she couldn't stay awake long enough. I'll try again at 11.

We went on a nice long walk around our neighborhood this afternoon. It was sunny and relatively warm. Thing2 was comfortable in shorts.

I don't know if I've mentioned this, but she has been eating better in the last week and she's gained about 5 pounds. If she can keep it up I will be so happy.

The last few weeks have been quite difficult in parts for me, and I've lost a few more pounds. I haven't been this weight in more than 10-years.

My total weight-loss is now over 40-pounds.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about Thing2. I do hope the situation will improve for her and you as well.

  2. I'm sorry to hear these things. Wishing goodness in 09 for you.

  3. What a difficult time for you. Take care of yourself.
