    The grumpy guy won a prize!

    The grumpy guy entered some wire sculptures in the county fair. He had entries in two categories, and won blue ribbons and rosettes in both!

    I'm so happy for him.

    I'm also happy that he now has tangible validation from an outside source that his art is well-received on its own merits, and not because of the story behind it. He starts the sculptures at home, and finishes them while he is receiving his chemotherapy infusions. I've been after him to take up some form of art again; I thought it would be good for his psyche. I'm glad he did!

    He gained 7 lbs two weeks ago, and has maintained it for a week!

    He feels kind of puny today; this is the week he has oxaliplatin (the infusion which hits him hardest physically and emotionally), and this is the point in "oxi week" where he's lowest. He'll be better in a couple of days, and things will be easier for him next week. Thanks for thinking of us!

    That's great that he's gained weight and maintained it, especially going through a difficult week.

    Congrats, and send pictures of the scupltures!
    You know it's love when the pain of being apart is greater than the pain of being together.

    Never try to fit in when you are meant to stand out.

    I like your new pictures where your hair is longer. It suits you very well.


    @MM
    I am happy for your boy friend that he won a price.

    This won't let me link to the pic he put on FB, and it won't let me upload a file (I think the upload has to do w/our connection). When I find something that works, I'll share a photo of the entry which includes the tree he made for me and the prizes the entry won.
