Scott, dealing with 'never borrow trouble' has been a constant battle for years! She is who she is and probably won't change but my wife constantly anticipates what might happen next in all areas of life. I keep lobbying for us to make the most of today, the time we have right in front of us, going back to the fact that no one knows how much time they have.
rmfticker, no, she's not confined at all. In fact, she's pretty active still. We just got back from our first of two routine trips to the "gym" (activity center) every Tues & Thurs. Yesterday we drove 2 1/2 hours to meet our son and his family at a dude ranch west of here (Texas). We take at least one trip to the Caribbean every year for me to SCUBA dive and, even though she used to join me, she still loves going there and usually on the boat with me. The key with her is to be distracted and travel is her favorite distraction. On paper, she should be pretty sick but in reality she's doing very well. Her treatments are now weekly instead of every three weeks like before and her blood work is not improving so don't know how long this will last but, once again, that's why I keep pushing for living in the moment!
