We're Still Here
After three cycles of chemotherapy v has improved. We are so happy and thankful for this news from the doctor. His largest tumor has decreased in size by 50% and other sites have either decreased or stabilized. He starts another three cycles on Monday morning. We are ready.
We are also tired today. v is now on antibiotics for a sinus infection. It saps his energy. I discovered that I can no longer tolerate a cup of coffee at all hours as I once had done. Life is constant learning and I learned that having a warmed up cup of coffee at bedtime is not the same as a nice cup of peppermint tea. I did get a lot of thinking and planning accomplished as I gazed out the window into the starry night sky. I was privileged, and thrilled, to catch sight of a shooting star at about 2:30 this morning. I even had the alertness to make my wish as it arced across the sparkling sky, thanks to my bedtime cuppa. I had only the most momentary concern that, perhaps, I was witnessing the beginning cataclysm I've been hearing about with the Mayan Calendar predictions.
We're still here.
In bocca al lupo. m & v
