It is Tuesday, 25 March 2014.

Chemo was cancelled for today because Mathew’s platelet count is 98. Just 2 points shy of the needed 100 but still not quite enough.

It is rescheduled for Friday, pending blood work results on Thursday. They should be good enough then.

Oh. Did you know we are expecting a blizzard here tomorrow? Yes, you read that right. A blizzard. Happy spring indeed. It might be like the last one that blew through; we saw very little of it and it came in the form of wind and rain. Being as cruel as she is, Mother Nature will probably whallop us good this time. There is up to 40 cm of snow forecast.


It doesn’t feel like spring with our temperatures running to – 5 degrees Celsius during the day and -17 at night.

It feels like the longest winter of my LIFE.
