I was waiting for a response to two letters I’d sent to family about Humphrey, the original cancer that had been removed in a lumpectomy operation on October 31st.
I had a phone call from one and a 125 word email from the other, though only a third of that was about me.
This time, I have not yet told those two particular family members, as to be completely honest, I’ve had extremely little contact from either of them all year. OB has rung me once because he wanted to know something about my sister (that is SUCH a joke, as if I’d know!) and Sis sent me a four word text to thank me for her birthday card in September (this is actually a first).
I would rather have a phone call because they genuinely want to catch up instead of feeling obliged to call because of circumstances. I suppose you could say I am equally at fault, but then I have sent everyone birthday and anniversary cards as I do every year, and heard nothing back. Ours were forgotten. Ho hum.
With Christmas just around the corner, I shall be sending out my cards and 2019 newsletter in the next couple of weeks. As far as Dick is concerned, he’s done and dusted. I’m getting on with life and next week due to have my fitting locally for the official falsie (haven’t thought of a name for it yet). I’m doing all of my exercises, though only three repetitions of the two stretching ones against the wall at the moment, but lifting my arms behind my head I am almost touching the bed behind me now and pushing my shoulders down against the mattress my elbows are also touching the bed. It’s slow progress this time as there is more injury to heal, but I am getting there.
Darts tonight, so no tea for me to allow for the darts supper. We haven’t played at this venue before so I don’t know what to expect, hot or cold, or a mixture of both.
I’ve just had a text from the league secretary and our team are second from bottom with three points. Those on the bottom have none at all, so it will be interesting to see how we get on when we play them the final week before the Christmas fortnight break!
