- Baby M/m is doing great. At last ultrasound, was measuring right on time. Which means today is 9 weeks 2 days.
- Heartbeat was 175 (and our gestational surrogate is placing bets that it's a girl. How about you?)
- Today is day 44 of my running streak.
- 30:48 was my finish time for a 5K this weekend. A personal best, and also the very first time I've ran with the woman who inspired me to run, my girl S.
This weekend was a rough one. M and I were both exhausted, but we got to leave on Sunday. Mom, she gets to stay behind. And apparently things got worse when we left. Cancer is clearly pushing into his brain and he has equal moments of lucidity and talking straight up nonsense. He thinks he's mobile but he's not. He fell twice when we were there and thank god for M because I wasn't getting a 200+ lb man off the floor. His weakness is making him frustrated. His frustration is making him mean. His meanness makes me snap back...none of this is pretty.
He's spending a few days at the hospice facility now, which will be a relief for my mom, who is crumbing under her own exhaustion. I'm debating renting a car and heading down tomorrow for a few days, but the problem is, once Labor Day weekend hits, their little beach town will quadruple in size. I'll need to make it back before the weekend rush or my 3+ hr drive will turn into a 5+ one. Guaranteed.
So we'll see.
