No geese floating on the pond today. Marlon and I wandered around a little. Short jaunts, partially because of the heat, and because his legs hurt after 10 minutes of walking. He looks so awkward when walking and said today it's partially because his right foot isn't strong enough to push off properly.
I was thinking that by the time he reaches maintenance he will still have another year and a half of treatment. It won't drag him down as much but from where I stand that sounds ridiculous and overwhelming. Argh!
Marlon wrote a short story (not much more than a paragraph) about a pickle, his friend the sweet potato, and mayor cabbage. He drew a picture to go along with it.
