I finished the book Empty Mansions that I had downloaded from the library to my Kindle. That was pretty fascinating, to read about the wealthy Clark family and how much the heiress Huguette gave away to her caregivers.
The one thing that I have been dealing with the past week is a whole lot of worrying and the blues. I have heard that depression is something that might come on. Well it has come, and I am trying my hardest to keep my chin up. The thing is, it doesn’t last long and comes and goes in waves. It’s not something that I have had to deal with in the past.
The nurse that I had on Monday said that some people, when faced with a serious illness, can go through almost a grieving stage like losing a loved one. I guess it might be a combination of my body going through all these changes and it being the holiday season. Who knows? I feel that talking about it with Mark and my family has helped. I am just really looking forward to spending Christmas with our families next week,
I did give the cereal a try, and it was quite nice. The texture and flavor of the little grains of sesame seed and barley were a pleasant change of pace from the steel cut oats. Thanks, old friend!
