Oh my. What a June.
First the external wireless keyboard went out. More on that in a blog post (with pretty pictures!).
Then the first chemo appointment ended up with it all getting cancelled and Mother Hen ending up in the emergency room to find out why she was bleeding. Which turned out to be a bad bladder infection.
We went home with meds and she recovered. All good! I got in some good writing and art in (with restrictions. See post about the dead keyboard). So, we go back 2 weeks later for chemo. She’s doing well, other than we’re all hot from the heatwave going through Arizona.
Aaaand, the chemo knocks her for a loop. All of a sudden she not only can’t walk, but she can’t even stand. She starts pushing away water, refusing to take it in her mouth even when she said she wanted it. I finally figured out she would take it from a spoon (maybe it seemed like eating). Only, it wasn’t enough.
So, on a Sunday in the middle of the first big thunderstorm of the season to hit our area, we somehow wrestle her into the car and take off for the emergency room. Turned out that yes, she was dehydrated. She’s on blood thinners, and the lack of fluids had caused the levels in her blood to go high. She was admitted into the hospital, and that’s where we’ve been ever since while they get her stabilized.
And where I still am as of July 1st when Camp Nano starts.
Okay, June. Glad to see you gone. Don’t let the door hit you on the…
So, out of the June goals not a bunch got done. As the medical issues are still ongoing, I’ll be severely curtailing the July goals. Goals reached:
Outlines for books 4, 5, and 6 of The Enigma Watchers are finished! Good thing, as I’ll be writing on them this July.
19807 new words in June (goal had been 30k). Considering all that happened, that’s not half bad!
Finished copyedits of “The Legend of Crazy Uncle George (Salmon Run – Book 8), and started the formatting process.
All considering, not too bad for what June threw at me.
