CAPTAIN POOLIE NEWS


Captain Poolie, January 19, 2018.

I work with a wonderful nurse named Barbara.  She’s a very up to date woman with information I didn’t take in the first time she told me.  “Lymphoma always comes back,” she said. 

Poolie’s Lymphoma has returned.  This newest hospitalization was in La Jolla because the wait to get into the ER was over an hour.  The flu here is an epidemic.  She’s back at her usual hospital now with news that the lymphoma has returned, there is a tumor on her spine, and she is now paralyzed from the waist down. 

The day they discovered it, they tattooed her and began radiation.  She’s in tears thinking she will be stuck in a wheel chair for the rest of her life.  I am acutely aware that Lymphoma always returns.

  • Himself:  Feeling very good.  Made dinner appointment for his Birthday, took day off to take me to the eye doc on the 19th, Saw Poolie at the hospital last night.
  • Me, myself, and I:  Literally everyone at the hospital was wearing a mask.  Security was at the door greeting all visitors with masks.  It was a Frightening experience.  I’m waiting for a CT scan appointment.  Dentist today.
  • Reading:  Nothing at this second.
  • Gratitude’s:  That I’m only wearing out.

  1. Poolie's news made me sad and I #$$^@ for awhile and the regardless of anyone's views faith or no faith I added her by first name to my church's prayer list. Our hospital here has no open beds due to the flu and they are masking all and limiting visitors. Glad Poolie is at least back somewhere familiar and where they know her. She is quite a woman.

  3. Maybe that flu is going from west to east because the worst reports that I read seem to be out your way.

  6. Oh no... I'm so very sorry. This has got to be very hard and scary to adjust to.
