    He actually told me later he was going to go and then come home after a couple hours. He is salaried so can get away with it. He does, however, work about 25 minutes away, via the freeway, and I'd rather not think about him driving it when he is sick and tired.

    This is how I kind of tricked him. He takes a nap on his first night back. I went in and turned down his side of the bed, because I knew he was feeling like crap. He thanked me when he saw I had done that. I said I had something to thank him for too. He asked what. I told him I wanted to thank him for calling in sick.......he knew he had lost!

    I hope you both feel better soon. Chemo is a cumulative thing....some treatments are harder than others. Praying for both of you. (((HUGS)))

    Yesterday was Pirate Talk Day so it was OK if you used some while convincing MM to call in sick.

    I think people having treatments want to just get on with life and not let this keep them down...can't blame him but he does have to care for himself too! Take care both of you! xox

    Had to talk till I was blue in my face...

    But I finally got MM to call in sick tonight. He is not feeling well from the last round and his voice is really messed up this week! Which means my tummy is queasy and I barely made it thru lunch and my throat feels icky, but it's not .

    Finished all my sewing for the retreat and even made myself a little bag to hold my notions!!
Working...
