Good morning to all. Today is chemo day 2 and I am nervous once again about how my dad will feel. Both he and my Aunt Shirley took chemo on Tuesday of last week. My dad seemed fine all week. I actually even found some of his short term memory alive and kicking again. He remembered several things I never dreamed he would pull out....whoooo hoooo! Anyways, day two is dawning very bright, crisp, and cold. I made the decision to let my mom (Miss Antsy) take him and stay with him.....and then I will go out during my planning period for a while and relieve her. I learned last week that there is no need for two of us to just sit there. The nurses at the chemo dept. made me leave my cell phone number....they obviously know my mom. If this works then I can save some days out. I hate to miss school so much. It makes me feel like I am letting the kids down on their learning. Spanish substitutes in our system don't exist....so when I am out it is videos with worksheets or busy work. Sigh....wish me luck....hopefully today will go well.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
