To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Day 4

Okay, well, technically this is day 5 after the first chemo treatment.  There is a reason for this.  At first, we were told that the 'bad time' would likely occur somewhere between 3 to 5 days.  We were also told, however, that our doctor tended to pick day 4 as the *bugga-boo*, and guess what?  More proof that she knows here stuff.

So without further adieu, I present to you the perfect representation of Day 4.  Just click here.  If you really want to know.

I remember from daughter's bout with breast cancer, that there are bad days.

Lots of gentle hugs, to you my Dear. And Courage. And Strength.

Have I said that she is cancer free? Yes, I probably have. But it seems that good news like that, is worth repeating.

Hugsssssssssssssssssssssssssss...

Dear Auntie,
Definitely worth mentioning. Definitely.

I had to laugh through my tears, your poor Goatmother and believe me I know what she means...I mean my Goatmother knows what she means...Ugh!! Too many means there!! But to have the where with all and sense of humor to explain it with this video is a wonder, in itself!! She is amazing!! My Goatmother used to call it "getting spooged"...I'm really not sure what that means...there I go again with the means thing but it must be something like how your Goatmother described it!! Well, we sure hope that she has crawled out from under that disco ball by now!!
Give her some of your peanuts...maybe that will help and a big hug too!!

Mrs. Micawber said...

Oh dear. More hugs to you, Goatmother. (And prayers are being said.)

P.S. We do really want to know. "We have come a long way with you and been through some stiff times. We want to go on." (FotR, Chapter 3).

Oh, dear Goatmother, I was really into that song, thinking that's right, that's the attitude! until that suprise ending. Well, pflooey on that ending and on those bad days that come with treatment. Rock on with the attitude instead. Giving extra peanuts to Marigold might help you feel better. Worth a try.

Buffybelle said...

Just the thought of the Goatmother facing the effects of the chemo is not pleasant. But the Goatmother has to live it. Plenty of rest on the davenPORT will be necessary. Our prayers are for the Goatmothers endurance through this difficult but necessary treatment.

Marigold said...

Dear Queen Quattra,
*Spooged* An apt word if ever I saw one! We like it, and like that video, it conveys a WHOLE lot! Perhaps we shall add a few things to the dictionary.

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
What a brave soul you are to even want to continue on! But you know what? You might never know how much we appreciate it. Now, if we can just crawl out from under that disco ball ... :)

Marigold said...

Dear Ozarks Goat Girl,
Now I sincerely hope the Goatmother listens to you because I am just positive that giving ME more Peanuts will help her more than she can even know. What a good suggestion. What a friend! :)

Marigold said...

Dear BuffyBelle,
Endurance is a good word. We shall butt the Goatmother along. Now, then, do you think you could do some *Day4* slaying? I mean if there were less *Day4's* the world would be a much, MUCH better place. And just think of it! There are probably all kinds of *Day4's* out there we don't even know anything about. Yes, it would be a true service to the world.

Candy C. said...

I sincerely hope there aren't too many more "Day4's" for the Goatmother to endure! {{{HUGS}}}

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
Three more. We can do this. I think. :)

DebH said...

I agree on the davenPORT! Sure wish I could help and maybe have a pot of chicken dumplin soup ready for Goatmother or just a cupa tea. I think my day 4 always happened on day 2. I should not of been driving, or signing documents or even talking on those days! Rest well and often, I'm thinking of you daily!

Marigold said...

Dear DebH,
Well, shoot. Day 2? Hey, at least you got it out of the way quicker. :) We are going to have chicken stew for dinner tonight (not me of course. I prefer Peanut stew). God bless the little chickens for helping with day 2's and day 4's!!!

Millie said...

I my dear Marigold. Maybe you should share your peanuts with the Goatmother. I'm sure that would help her survive.

sleeplsann said...

Annie here....Jenny's friend who's in the same boat as you. I've been hoping you'd not have too many side effects. Hang in there!
Hope to meet you someday.

Marigold said...

Dear Millie,
By all means I need to share my Peanuts...it is just that she seems to have some odd tastes right now. :)

Marigold said...

Hey, Annie!!! Hello!!!! We have been wondering about you and so very glad to hear from you! We have wished the same for you, but we know better. :( Still, we WILL survive this (Disco ball or no! :)) and by all means, we hope to meet you, too! FOR SURE!!!!

Kelly said...

I can see you resting in a lounge chair in the shade. Fresh air is a good thing! Hope you are feeling better soon. Much Love.

Marigold said...

Dear Kelly,
Are you clairvoyant? I sure hope so 'cuz it won't stop raining here long enough for anyone to sit in the shade, let alone eat grass. My Peanuts are getting soggy. Oy.

denise f said...

Dear Marigold, I have up to my behind in large amphibias (sp?) reptiles yet again. But I think often of the GM and I have some advice for you. Forget peanuts. Forget about Marigold time. Right now the GM needs the best thing you can offer -- barn therapy. There is nothing more soothing than a few goatie kisses and the sound of chewing cud. Trust me on this one, Marigold. Largest hugs and kisses from all of us in SoCal! *****ps I said FORGET the peanuts!****

Marigold said...

Dear Denise,
How could you? Forget Peanuts? This is sacrilege. Blasphemy. Oh, the pain... By the way, what are these large amphibians of which you speak and why are they up to your behind? I wouldn't let them anywhere near my behind.

Snowcatcher said...

Perfect song for the occasion. More and more prayers, and more and more hugs...
