Made it ...


Well I made it through the 5 days of oral chemo with just a  few nauseous moments.  Seems like eating small amounts regularly is the way to go, even though I don't really feel that hungry.  Could be much worse though, both in terms of at least food still tastes good....and I didn't throw up.   I get 23 days off now, blood work in week 3, further blood work before I start the next round in the beginning of April.  

Dave and I haven't killed each other yet...sometimes the daily decision is where to take the dog for a walk, where/when to have coffee and then balancing out how to get both kids to their activities.   Luckily their schedules have been manageable and with the help of friends conflicts have been solvable.   4 weeks and 2 days and I will be a kid chauffeur again.

Hope you all have some fun activities planned for Spring Break.  We are staying here, both kids are signed up for some bball camps to get them out of the house.  :)  Maybe, just maybe we will be able to put our yak tracks away by the end of the weekend, we still have snow in our backyard and on the local dogwalks in the forests....crazy given it is mid-march.

    I am glad to hear this round went ok for you. I think of you often and appreciate your updates. We are away for 1/2 of the spring break but maybe in the 2nd week if you're not busy I could come out your way for a visit.

    So glad that the chemo treatment has not been too bad and that you get a break now! The countdown is now on for you to get back to more 'normal' activities too!! Yaaaahh.

    Sounds like you are coping really well! With spring coming (yes it is!), and better weather those last weeks till freedom should go by quicker. Best of luck and a speedy return to doing more fun and useful things!
