The Eternal Return

Babushka has a first appointment tomorrow morning with the oncologist for what appears to be stage 4 colon cancer, which was discovered about two weeks ago during an emergency room visit. Babushka-watchers will recall that she had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2004-2005 and that I was her companion for most of her appointments and chemo. Our relationship has changed quite a bit since then, but here I am. Thus tonight finds me overnighting at her place so as to maximize telework time while tending to her medical needs tomorrow.
