Greetings and Salutations!
Chemo is OVER!
On Friday we scored an [infusion] room with a view that stretched over the Yawkey building to the Sears building in Fenway, skirted rooftops in Kenmore and ended on the upswept facade of Encore Boston, in Everett. That view covered a lot of ground. Made me realize just how intimate Boston is, which is why I love this city. Sheryl brought the hot tea and sandwiches. Shawn and Barbara brought the champagne. As we toasted to the end of my chemo and a much shrunken tumor, I toasted the kindness and endurance of friends and family. I haven't the foggiest idea how I'd get through this without you all.
I'm definitely feeling very achy and exhausted. The chemo will do its thing for another month while the Reclast infusion will strengthen my bones, which chemo tends to weaken. I'll have some more tests in a few weeks and then surgery on Feb. 3rd. Until then I'll be at home recouping. I'd love to see you.
The pics above are from our sweet, quiet holiday. If you can expand the grass/tree photo, you'll see a white-tailed deer here in Cambridge at the Alewife Reservation. When Gloria heads out for her walkabouts she snaps photos of the wildlife for me. I look forward to joining her again on our rambles.
Much love to you all.
