So here we are on the second day of the 10th month of the year. Autumn has always been a great season of the year - a welcome respite from the oppressive heat our area experiences during the summer months. Our neighbors asked us if we wanted to go with them to visit Ennis last night. We had already decided we were going today after my acupuncture appointment so Dwight said we would wait. I am so glad we did. Evidently Ennis has been non-responsive for awhile now but today she was wide awake, smiling and talking. You have to get down close and listen really good but she answered me and I understood what she said for the most part. Especially when she told me she loved me. She even ate some ice cream and applesauce they said. I know it can change again on a dime but I'll just be happy and appreciate it for what it was to me - a wonderful gift. To see her beautiful eyes light up as she smiled and tried to answer made me very happy.
at Outer Banks. He talked to GG on the phone for a little bit tonight and said she sounds really good. He told her we were coming down and she was happy to hear it. I'm looking forward to my appointment next Tuesday with my Radiation Oncologist. I'm going to start trying to come off the oxycodone. Kelly thinks it is time and I have to agree. Hopefully I can do it in a way that doesn't cause me too much distress. I love the picture on the left I scanned of Jen and Kelly when they were down at the cottage one weekend some years ago. They pulled the sofas closer together, put all their junk food and "drinks" between them and watched a lot of TV together. A perfect girls weekend.
