We’ve been waiting since Oct. 14 for test results from Rudy’s MRI. Why does it take so long? Everyone keeps asking me if we’ve gotten the results yet.
These days we live one day at a time and never know what it’ll be. Last Saturday we went to Jakob & Ben’s football game, but by half time Rudy was sick and I took him home. Then later in the evening we were supposed to go to Ben’s Birthday party, Rudy still was sick and could not go.
It was very hard for me to leave him home alone and go by myself. Rudy did call Ben and wish him Happy Birthday and told him he was sorry he didn’t make it to the party.
We did both make it to the Pumpkin Patch with everyone Sunday morning, Rudy seemed to enjoy himself.
He only golfs about 2 days a week now, doctors want him to keep golfing.
We don’t make plans any more, never know how Rudy will be feeling. He’s losing weight, has no appetite and most days I only get him to eat one meal. He’s always had a good appetite until now. Says he has bad taste in his mouth and does not want to eat.
We got a call yesterday morning from a buddy at work, he’d packed up Rudy’s things in his office and was bringing them to Rudy. They need Rudy’s office, so it was time to clear it out. We’d planned on going and helping him do this when the time came, but it happened this way. Rudy seemed to handle it ok though. Later he took them his office and gate keys.
Rudy’s not retired yet, he’s on Long Term for awhile, helps with our medical benefits and less money out of our pocket this way. Anything to save some money, his income is not what it used to be, that’s for sure!
