After 2+ weeks in the hospital dealing with pneumonia and a slew of subsequent issues, Mikaela is nearing discharge just in time for her birthday on the 18th!
With all of the time in bed, she’s blowing through the final season of Ally McBeal & I have to say that I’m excited to have her done with the series. I frequently feel like we are living the prime of our lives while culture is stuck in the doldrums, but the fact that a show like that could be so popular in decades gone by makes me feel a bit more secure in our times.
In other news: course of treatment recently changed a bit, and the new treatment will be causing her to lose her hair temporarily. We are going to shave it off before the medicine does the deed, and I’m going to be joining her in the shedding of the locks. Those pictures will be posted. We’ll see if I can sneak a photo of Mikaela with nothing covering her head…
Finally, we’ve found that marijuana is the best way to alleviate the nausea and lack of appetite that’s been plaguing Mikaela for the past month or so. Her stepmom made some delicious graham cracker bites with weed butter, and we purchased a Volcano to keep things covered at home — where I’m hoping I’ll be posting my next update upon her return!
