I have been reminded by some of my friends that my blog needs to be updated. How true! The thing of it is that I have dedicated this blog to point out the positive – that I have lived with cancer for over a year and a half, and for the most part very well. There have been rough patches, which eventually get resolved. I don’t like to write when I’m down.
I am in a rough patch right now. My oncologist knew, and I knew, that the last scan would be bad. And so it was. The cancer was still there, and had not been reduced. That is so discouraging. So now I am on a heavier soup of chemo, which brings with it the heavier side effects. Losing hair, nails effected, and the coughing is back, which affects my sleep. I am very tired.
And then this February’s snowfall is enough to make anyone depressed.
There are positive notes. Not is all gloom and doom. My husband takes such good care of me. I have found a driver for those days he is not available. My church circle meets at my house so I have company at least twice a month, and one or two stalwart friends make it over from time to time.
And my precious grand daughter, who is a freshman at Pitt, comes for the weekend every two or three weeks – even in all the snow! Last weekend she was here to keep me company, cook us a wonderful eggplant parmesian dinner, and do her laundry.
