Today we start up with the massive heat here in Chicago. We were expecting temps around 97 today with a heat index of 0, but this morning we got a huge line of thunderstorms that rolled in this morning which should keep things cool a bit in the morning. However in the afternoon, those clouds will clear and it will be a bitch today as we'll feel like we're swimming in air with all of the humidity. Not looking forward to the heat and humidity, but it is summer.

********

Had a rough night sleeping as my mom was crying in pain today. She just finished her th chemo treatment and now she's on a 24 hour Neulasta. It's not the chemo, its the Neulasta that makes her sick as a dealing with the effects of the 48 hours of chemo she takes. That or it takes her 24 hours to feel the effects of the chemo. Either way, she was sick as a this morning. It was hard watching her this morning when she's like that. It wears on you seeing her like this, but I feel so bad because she's in miserable pain.

********

I texted my Tuesday to see how her college Intro to Pre-Med conference is going and Wednesday morning she texted me back saying "It's great, but please don't bother me, I'm busy, so leave me alone." Both I and my ex dumped in over thousand dollars to for the conference, plane fare, for the trip, clothes to wear on the trip (she had to wear business attire for the days), and no thank you's, just "leave me alone, I'm busy." I get that you're busy, but you can't take seconds to talk to your dad via text and give me attitude after we had to sacrifice paychecks and I had to take a personal loan to get you to this conference? When she gets back, we're gonna have a talk. I'm not happy with her at the moment.

********

My rankings here at japaneseadultgirlfriend.com have fallen. I took off a lot of time the past couple of weeks, and as of late, I haven't had much to talk or blog about other than focusing on my family as of late. I really haven't gone out, done much this summer except work and family issues, taking care of my mom, taking care of my ...I haven't focused on me as of late. What's worse is I've been putting in some serious overtime at work. While that's good for my next paycheck, it's been really taking a lot out of me energy wise. I'm definitely not the young buck I used to be. I ended up stopping last night to get a minute chair massage at a local massage place that normally go to relax, but I ended up feeling worse, and the masseuse said I was super tight in my shoulder and neck region. I should have got a longer massage, but it was all I could this week. I think when I get home tonight, I'm going to take a nice bath to soak and relax. Might have to stop on the way home to get some Epson salt. I also need to take some time to relax at home tonight. No phone, no TV, just chill and relax. What are some ways you use to you relax at home?

********

Well I need to get to work, it won't do itself.

I am seriously considering asking my physician if he would authorize me to go to tone of the Salt Floats that are in town. Kinda iffy given my medical history and meds But if I dont ask I wont know. I hope it is your mother's choice not to have another round of chemo when this is done. I feel for all of you. Have you reached out through her doctors to see if her insurance will support a weekly visit from a visiting nurse or homecare worker that can take up some of the burden you and your father share? Worth asking!! Especially if she becomes totally bedridden and will need more hands on help

Actually, after the chemo is done, she'll be off it for 3 months to recover. If the cancer hasn't cleared, she'll be talking to her doctor if she will need to go back on the chemo or not. Or if they will try something new. I'm not sure what will happen. However, she did check and the visiting nurse is out.

Weather, rain is a mixed blessing, if it lasts long enough, it will cool down the area, either way, the humidity shoots up. Yes the humidity is killer. Here in KS, we were over one hundred before the humidity kicked it higher. At work, we hate cutting down green trees. The leaves capture humidity, but when it is cut down, all that humidity is released, drastically increasing it in that area, combined with the fact that there is no more shade ... we bake in our own skin. Just, ugh.

I’m sorry to hear that with your mom. Chemo tends to make one sick for long periods. I hope the sickness lessens. I also hope that she is nearing the end of the scheduled treatments. It is hard to go through it, and hard to watch others go through it.

Kids be kids. We are experiencing that with our football son. High expectations from us, with little to no respect or appreciation. My wife is taking it harder than myself. I got used to taking abuse and internalizing it. I do know that some of those conferences get crazy hard with work, as my favorite cousin took that route. Still, spending 5 to 10 minutes chatting with dad, would not truly make or break her. It is easy to get caught up in the, must get this done now, mentality.

Rankings. I gave up on that as I have an amazing local blogger CleavageFan. There is no chance at competition with him He even whoops me in pictures. Fantastic guy in real life and in the blogs.

I have greatly enjoyed reading your blog, very well thought out and spoken. Easy to get one to actually care. Good job.

Visit my blog if you want to at thax013 and thank you very much!

Woke up this morning and it was already 82. Today's gonna be a scorcher.

What's scaring me now is my mom is in so much pain that she has the two more chemo sessions and then they take her off of it for 3 months to recover. If the cancer isn't cleared, then she's not going to go back on it, and that's it, she's done, as they can't operate on her as the cancer has spread throughout her body in several areas. So if it's not killed off...

God I don't want to think about it.

The only thing that helped me take my mind off my mom was I texted my daughter last night and she was sorry she was so abrupt with me, but she was really busy. Her pre-med conference is planned out minute by minute for her, so she doesn't really get too much time while she's gone. But I did get 5 minutes with her texting and she said she's having a great time.

Eh, I never really cared about rankings either too much. Last night, I took that Epson salt bath, and that really helped take the stress out of my body.
