The pleasures of dexamethasone allow for pleasure of food as well as looking as though I am not looking gaunt. However they do not extend to being able to get out of bed because I've become quite dizzy on the dosage. Monday we will go down on dosage and hope to stay there.
I did get out on Thursday in a medivan with two great attendants and an extra one who was on training. This was to get over to Dr. Svorkdal's Pain Clinic for a pain pump fill. So I got to see the neighbourhood on a sunny day and on the way back they backed in so I could see my chickens and Andy brought up my favourite one, Zoe who is a True North Blue. Andy brought Thelma, my biggest Jubilee Orpington in last night to visit. Her combs and wattles are very red and I think that she will lay soon.
You may recall that my son Steven came from the Sunshine Coast north of Brisbane in Australia almost 2 weeks ago and has been allowed to visit masked outside my door on the deck with mask on. I too was supposed to wear a mask and finally on the lastly am complying. I think we all know I could be considered to be defiant/independent and now apologize in this case. I miss Heidi, Steven's wonderful partner so much but she is working full time on her online art and jewellry store that is all personally made. Were she to come now, she would have to quarantine two weeks here and two weeks when I'm going back so we shall see. My daughter-in-law Kara, wife of Andy and mother of Parker are now working and in school in Terrace. Should there be an opportunity for them to come on a break perhaps I will be overjoyed to see them.
There is no question that I feel some mental deterioration as is expected and I hope to be able to write this blog for a little bit longer. I think today's edition is enough for now. Love you all, Marian
