Bloglovin’ says to me.... You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.
I had only posted one comment when I got this message.
Why won’t Wordpress let me in? It used to be friendly towards me but not any more. I give all the information it requires but nothing happens. It has been that way for a few months on one blog, but now it’s happening on another one.
Bloglovin’ insists on only showing me two blogs at a time, which means either continually having to reload or give it up. I’m favouring the latter. The most efficient way to bookmark my favourite bloggers is by using Google’s Bookmark Bar.
Update on Joe
Chemotherapy is finished so kudos to him for coping with it so well. Now we wait for whatever comes next. We had expected that once chemo was done he would start to feel better; in fact in the first couple of weeks it was just the opposite.
First thing to hit him was tiredness. During the day he would nod off mid-sentence (almost) in whichever chair he happened to be sitting in but I have to say he seemed less tired the last couple of days. Perhaps the body is getting stronger. We can but hope.
Lack of appetite and inactive taste buds became an issue. We thought this would happen during treatment not after it but apparently it’s quite normal. Well, it may be normal but some days I don’t know how to feed him. I’m throwing good food away which really is a mortal sin. On top of everything else he inherited a urine infection which, together with a blood disorder, made him disorientated and dizzy first thing in the morning. Antibiotics were prescribed for the infection and a blood transfusion has been booked to deal with the anaemia. Poor man is pretty fed-up.
A nurse still comes once a week. They’re all lovely so we don’t have a favourite and I do admire them for their cheeriness and dedication to their job. Would you believe it is almost half a year since the first chemo session and nearly a year since it all started. I can’t believe how time flies.
Because Joe’s lack of appetite results in discarded food I have tried to salvage food whenever I can. Out of interest I threw a piece of banana on the lawn to see if the birds would touch it. Touch it? They practically queue up to get some. I threw some out the other day and straight away it was spotted by a Jay. In he zoomed, snatched a whole two inch portion and flew off, while a Magpie was still thinking about it! I could almost imagine the indignant magpie, with claws on wings, saying Hey, you, that’s MINE! I have one banana left and won’t be buying any more ... should be fun watching the antics one last time.
