Betty Dudley would have been 60 years old today.  In honor of her, I am spending the day eating leftover t-day food, watching tv and napping as the mood hits me.  Esp. when she was still working, she loved days like this.  Except for the tears that come and go, I'm mostly enjoying it too.

I am planning Betty's Memorial/Party for Saturday, Nov. 12. If you would like to come and you are not sure I have your snail mail address, please send it to me at gillygrrrl@ hotmail.com. I hope to get the invitations out in the next week.

In less than an hour it will be exactly 1 month since Betty died.  Feeling weepy and tired, even though I had a decent amount of sleep last night.  We started going through her stuff yesterday and making decisions on what goes where.  I'm putting out her books, dvds and cds for people to take when we have her party - which I haven't set a date for yet.  Just another closing type of thing to be done.

Betty isn't doing very well.  It is pneumonia.  The doctors aren't sure she's going to be able to fight it off.  I saw her this morning and she was in pain and disoriented, although her O2 level was better.  I just got home from a 1/2 day of work  to let the dog out and pick up Guy and now we're on our way back to see her.

I went to bed around 2 am and then I woke up suddenly at 6 am.  I layed in bed for 2 hours, but never manged to fall back asleep.  Lots on my mind from the changes coming down in the next few weeks with my job to Betty.  After a bad evening of headaches and a pain under her eye, she is kinda of loopy this morning.  Says she feels "fine", but I know something's going on.  She has an appointment with her onocologist on Thursday, but if she's not better, I'll have to get her in tomorrow to see someone.  I don't think I can leave her home alone like this.

Long day of doctor visits with Betty.  I'm completely wiped out.  Cancer sucks, it really, really, really does.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I’ve been doing short bursts on FB because I haven’t had the energy to do anything more. A lot has been going on.
