This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
It’s Wednesday (ok, actually it’s not Wednesday. I mean, I’m writing this on Sunday but I’m publishing it on Wednesday so it IS Wednesday but not currently for me. Was that confusing?) October 3 and today is a busy today.
Why is today a busy day? Well I’ll tell you. Today Keely has an MRI and a big appointment down at Duke with her Orthopedic Oncologist. Hopefully, the MRI will show a lot of bone growth in that tumor area and the entire operation, the ORIGINAL operation, can be declared a success.
The entire point of the operation was to stabilize the area and finally add the bone graft. The hope was that the large hole in her hip was the cause of the problems and pain that Keely had been having. Of course, she had a few complications such as the Femoral Bypass and Pulmonary Embolism but we certainly hope that the hip and pelvis itself is in better shape than it was before.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed because then, at 5:20, Keely and I are boarding a flight to Los Angeles. That’s right … Keely is getting on with her life. This summer Keely realized that what she really wanted to do was to be a writer, specifically a writer for TV (at this point at least) so we are going out to LA for a visit to see if she even likes it.
Los Angeles is a different type of city, certainly from what Keely has grown up with. Some people love it and some people hate it. We will be staying with friends while Keely checks out the business, checks out the city, goes out with some friends to see what it’s like to be a young person in LA and generally sees if that’s what she wants to do.
We will be there for a week. I will be just visiting friends since I’m not moving to LA. If Keely likes it out there than I guess she’ll just move out there and try to make a go of it.
Andie has told me that I’ll be incredibly depressed when Keely leaves and I’m sure she’s right. Other than the very beginning when everything was going wrong medically, we’ve had a delightful summer.
With Andie and Daniel both down at Duke, I’m sure I’ll be bored out of my gourd once Keely is gone but I suppose I’ll have to figure out what to do next. Perhaps I’ll get back to painting and sculpting. Maybe I’ll even finish my book? Who knows, I’m sure I’ll figure it out and I’ll let you guys know as well.
Meanwhile, I am trying to set up posts ahead of time but it’s always difficult for me to write while on the road so just a warning about my content.
Hope all is well.
