A Sleepy Week
This latest round of Temodar has really made Gorman a sleepyhead. One morning he slept until 10:00! He has napped every afternoon, long naps, which he resists. I think he considers this laziness but I keep telling him to listen to his body and just sleep if he needs to. He’s been reading John Grisham’s newest book, The Racketeer, but even that page-turner hasn’t kept him awake through the afternoons.
We are both still coughing and hacking a little but are much better and today his sleepiness has eased.
Tomorrow morning we are leaving for a little getaway to FL. First we’re going down to Apalachicola for the weekend. There’s something about that sweet little town that calls to us. Gorman would so enjoy some of their famous oysters, raw of course, but with his precarious medical situation he’ll have to opt for roasted or fried. We can manage that. On Sunday we’ll worship at the very old and historic Trinity Episcopal Church. When we find ourselves traveling on a Sunday, we love finding the local Episcopal church. The liturgy and Book of Common Prayer make us feel right at home.
On Monday we’ll drive to Seaside to spend three nights. They were offering 30% off last minute reservations so we got a great one bedroom condo overlooking the Gulf and it has a fireplace, ta da! The weather is supposed to be sunny but chilly. Gorman really feels the cold weather, a side effect of chemo I suppose, but if it’s too cold to walk on the beach, we’ll just build a fire and enjoy looking at the water from inside. No doubt we’ll eat some good food and drink a little wine. Oh how we treasure every single day that God gives us.
