Sally's Blog

This is Sally again. Bill wanted to write but he is really tired. It's been a long day for him. He woke up early this morning and made the 2 little ones breakfast. Zachary expressed yesterday he missed his dad and wanted to spend more time with him. So Bill promise he would eat breakfast with Zac in the morning. I wasn't feeling well so it was nice. I went back to bed. Bill tried to lay on the couch but Kaity has been missing her dadda as well and wanted to jump all over him.

Of course we are all relieved from the good news today. We will keep praying it will remain this way. Five more full chemo sessions left. It's nice to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. There will be another 6 treatments to follow but it should be much easier for him to handle, he won't have to come home with the pump anymore. Hoping until then the side effects of the chemo he can handle. It seems to be a little harder for him to handle. Plus he is still trying to get use to the 12 hour shifts. He is working tomorrow night through Sunday night. It will be harder for him because there is rule at work that is now being enforced. They were allowed to leave the premises for lunch. Because of an incident from a certain employee they will no longer be able to. It's crummy how one person ruined it for everyone. With chemo he has a hard time with food. What he might want a couple of hours ago, the the thought of it later on might make him feel ill. It wasn't so bad because he would be able to go and get something else to eat but now he can't. He won't be able to take medicine either if he isn't feeling well. With us just having one car, I might not be able to go for him either if he drives himself to work. Also, it was nice because once in a while the kids and I would meet him for lunch and now we can't.

After hearing the good news I left to get Michael and Zachary from school. On the way back I decided to celebrate by going to Munster Donuts and buying a box of donuts for Bill and the other chemo patients. I do not know why I didn't think of it earlier but I am going to do this every time. Often the patients are there for 4 plus hours. Many of them are by themselves. I know they might get hungry plus it's nice to have a little treat under crummy conditions.

Bill's favorite holiday is Halloween and the last couple of years he has been decorating the yard. Every year after Halloween we try to buy a little more to add on. Hopefully one year he can have a grand display. Bill is like a little kid when it comes to this. He is looking forward to next week when he has a couple of days off so he can start working on the yard.

Bill had mentioned a little girl, Hope, from Zac's school that was hit by a car. Her grandparents started a blog for those who are interested. She is still being sedated but hopefully by the middle of next week she will be able to wake up. The web site is You have to register to use it. It's under HopesFirstCarePage

Bill said he will write a new blog Monday or Tuesday next week.

Hi, I am Bill Ceiga and I approve this blog.
