Waking up at 11 a.m.


Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Blueberries, Maple Syrup, and Almond Milk. English Breakfast Tea.


Early in the morning mom was struggling in pain at the hospital. She texted me. I get ready and visit with her. I brought a few Christmas cards for her that came in the mail. Her voice seems to be better and more audible today. This whole thing is a question mark as to whether or not she will live on. It’s understood that the cancer has really become metastatic, meaning it keeps appearing in many places, mainly in her neck and the adrenal gland. Now they’re saying it might be entering her lungs. She’s still in good spirits and has an overall sense of readiness to leave this earth. For me it just feels like a shock. We already knew to plan on it happening but we always keep hope alive. I just wish a miracle would manifest itself.


I drive on home after picking up a few bagels. Dealing with Christmas traffic in Hilltop as this heaviness of everything stays with me.


Catching up on business.


Scrambled Eggs. Bagel with Vegan Cream Cheese. Potato Chips with Avocado. Coffee.


Teaching lessons at Music Makers. It’s almost just a normal Monday here at the studio but a little shorter lesson schedule.


Black Beans with Carrots, Onions, Mushrooms, Broccoli, and Rice.


Back at the hospital spending some quality time with mom – helping her organize the room – sharing some more Christmas cards – talking. I feel much better after this session with her.


Back home. Orange Juice.



Sleep 4 a.m.
