Tough Week
Old 08-02-2019, 10:46 AM

This was not a good week. Husband got his official diagnosis of COPD this week, although it was suspected. Our water problems continued and DH had to go down every morning and clean out the filter so we could take a shower. He bought a new filter and it still didn't help. We're getting on the county water next week as soon as permits and paperwork is done.

My sweet Westie has a lump on his left side, so I took him to the vet and they did a biopsy. He said it had two different types of cells, one normal, the other not sure, but could be a carcinoma. Set surgery for the 21st. He is running around and acting fine, so we are hopeful

Had flooring put in two bathrooms. One morning we had no toilet, but made it until lunchtime when one was put back in and flooring done. The other one is still torn up and the guy hurt his shoulder bringing in the new tub and shower by himself and had to go to the doctor. Won't be back until Monday.

Husband's best friend is a widower and had cataract surgery Tuesday and spent the night with us and DH took him to surgery and follow up appt. Wednesday. Thankfully it went fine.


My best friend found a big lump in her breast and it is probably cancerous. I went with her for an MRI this morning and will go with her for a biopsy Tuesday. The doctor was very concerned and said it looks serious.

Somehow it helps to type it all out and deal with it a day at at time. Thanks for listening.

That is a lot to handle. You are so wonderful to help others even as you navigate the difficulties in your own house and family. Good luck.

All at the same time. But you are very generous to help others in need. I hope your husband receives the best of care and is able to manage his health issue well. Sounds like your water issues will be resolved next week. I hope your dog turns out to be okay. Keep us posted.

I'm so sorry. It is inspiring to see, however, how you care for others even when you have many, many challenges going on yourselves.

Thanks for all your caring comments. I am a strong Christian and have taken it in stride. I have been through cancer and believe this will help me with my friend's journey. The water issue is being taken care of. My husband's friend is back at home and we have a week's beach vacation planned for August 10-17th. It has been a rough 4-5 years with parent's deaths and sickness, but I have so much to be thankful for and am trying to count my blessings. It just seems like it comes in droves, sometimes.
