Last night I put a small oil heater in Jimmy's bedroom to keep him warm since the temperature dropped down to around 34 degrees. When I checked on Jimmy this morning I was surprised at how toasty and nice his room was compared to the rest of the house. Me and the cats were cold and they didn't even want to go outside this morning. When I opened the door to feed the outdoor cats, the indoor cats stepped back and said in unison, "You ain't putting me out there!"
I took a hot shower to warm me up and then I got out another oil heater just like the one Jimmy has in his room and fired that baby up. I don't know why I just don't turn on the gas heat but I think it's because I want this cold spell to be nothing but temporary.
Jimmy is feeling much better today, no nausea to speak of, and he even ate breakfast and went outside to feed the squirrels after he took a shower. He thinks he's passed the hump with the chemo and the road is all down hill from here. I'm glad that he's so optimistic because that puts a smile on my face and makes me feel that everything is going to be all right.
