good morning, friends...once again I must start with an apology for delaying so long in posting this update. A week ago I had the 4th in the series of 6 chemotherapy treatments. I consider that milestone to take me to the halfway point, because it is the 3 weeks following the treatment that are the challenge, not getting the chemo itself. I have to say it's all going as well as could be expected.. Every time I experience a symptom, I check the known side-effects list for each of the 4 chemo drugs I'm getting, and so far there hasn't been anything that many others also have reported. Although advised to contact your regular physician if you have something wrong that's not related to the treatment, a review of those lists makes me wonder just what that might be! Hopefully, I won't find out. I am pleased overall that the fall has not been a complete wash, that there are days and periods of several days that I might feel almost normal, and that these are somewhat predictable, because I've done many of the enjoyable things I always do. For the first time in many years, I am relatively caught up with my antiques and books business matters, and that feels great, not to mention that I thoroughly enjoy it.. Bob seems to be coping well and is hugely helpful.
I think that's it for the moment. Thanks to you all once again for your caring and good thoughts and energy. Please know they are appreciated. So far we have not had a single flake of the S word here, and that can continue for some time without a problem for most of us. love, Sue
