Lung cancer kills

Another day in real life cancer care. Three patients with lung cancer that is slowly taking the life they each have away. I wish my smoking friends would stop it. I pray young folks who are tempted to smoke won't do it. This was a tough day on many people and on those trying to care for them.

Now I am at home and trying to process how the day went. Do my patients and their families know we did everything we could do? Do they know how much we really care that our treatment did not work for them? Do they know that I care about them?

It was hard to kiss my dying patient as she left and know that precious woman probably won't be on this earth many more days. It was hard watching her daughter leave with her, crying as she pushed her out to take her home for hospice care.

Thankfully, the weekend (for me) is here and I'll try to rest and regenerate myself for another week caring for people with cancer.

Getting creative

I'm addicted to YOUTUBE and watching people who do papercrafting. Now what I need to do is stop collecting supplies and start creating. A new locally owned craft store will be opening on February 20th here in Mobile, AL. I look forward to the opening and for an opportunity to support a local business person in the papercrafting industry.

I have made six valentine heart frame that I cut from my Cricut using Sure Cuts A Lot software for my 6 X 6 Stampin' Up club tomorrow but what to do with them is a question I have answered yet. I'll figure it out.

Senior Bowl is on TV and I think I go watch it with hubby.
