It’s been almost a week since I’ve updated. Things have been relatively uneventful since Monday when Gabriel received his last spinal tap, intrathecal chemo, and bla bla bla. We are getting to a point where it is all running together in the brain.
Otherwise the week was relatively uneventful, except Wednesday Gabriel had to go in for his third blood transfusion. Unfortunately, since it was his first here in Reno, it meant most of a day spent at the clinic for Chet and Gabriel. They got there at 9:30 a.m. I took them lunch and hung out for a while and then they were finally released to go home around 4:30 pm. They say the next transfusion won’t be as long. We can only hope.
The best part, at least for all of us this week was the SNOW! Oh, it’s been awesome. We got about 18″ here at the house, not to shabby. Gabriel and Rebeka had a blast playing.
It’s been a fun week for all.
This weekend Chet and I were able to get our office remodel almost completed. We finished up taping and spraying texture on the drywall. Have I mentioned recently how much I would prefer to pay someone else to do that work. Oh-well. Then today, while Chet was running, I got the primer on and the first coat of paint on. I did not expect the walls to suck up an entire gallon of primer. Whew. We had 3/4 of a gallon, and ol’ Murphy was at his best with his law, and I had to make a run to Home Depot for another gallon with only less than 1/4 of one wall left to prime.
But, it looks great. Tomorrow, God willing, Chet will have time to lay the new hardwood floor and then we’ll have the trim left to do, but otherwise it will be nearly complete. My job will be to get it set up like an office. One more project nearly complete. Pictures will be up once I remember to take some in decent light. I have to say, the office colors are very masculine – very Chet. That’s not a bad thing.
Well, that’s pretty much all there is to report from here. Things are pretty mellow. Gabriel goes back in on Tuesday for another spinal tap and intrathecal chemo along with a few other chemo drugs. Wednesday we’re going to head back to Oakland for the rest of the week and radiation for Gabriel. Onward we go.
