The Stacey Report

May 8: Good News from the Garden

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on May 8, 2006

A few days ago, Stacey asked me if I could come over on Sunday afternoon and help her with some garden stuff. When I arrived at about 2:30, she had been out there for who knows how long already, and was at that moment crouching down, spreading the new apple tree’s roots down into the bottom of the hole Michael had dug. I suggested that perhaps crouching might be one of the things she would like to order me to do, and she agreed.

However, she said, getting out in the sunshine and doing some work was very good for her. She said that she’d spent the day before sitting on her duff because “people with cancer and broken hips shouldn’t overexert.” Well, by the end of the day, she said, she felt horrible. Then, that morning, she went to acupuncture, and she said “you know how you feel all energized after acupuncture?” (Indeed I do! Thanks, Kerry and Judi!) Well, she decided to channel that energy into the garden and said that she felt a thousand times better than the day before.

This week, more preparations for the chemo, some medical, some not. Tuesday is family portrait day. Saturday is haircut day: it is apparently easier, in many ways, to lose your hair if you cut it short first. So Stacey is going back to the super-short cut she had in college… and even in High School… but will she go all the way back in time and leave a long braided tail?

Stay tuned, for that and for other exciting news! (Hint: get out your wallets.)
