I’ve told Kathy that we’re not leaving home again for a two week stretch unless it’s for a vacation in the Mediterranean or the Virgin Islands. It’s just too long to be away for this medical nonsense. Fortunately my fourth and final treatment next month is only a four day trip.
Kathy and I were thrilled and surprised when we got back home late Saturday. The kids had decorated the outside of our house with Christmas lights and baked lots of delicious Christmas goodies that were arranged on the counter. Kathy cried. I ate fudge.
I’m feeling much better than I did after the first two rounds of therapy, although I still have almost no energy and generally feel beaten up. My appetite and queasiness both come and go. I’ll be heading back into the office for a few hours Wednesday through Friday this week. Then I have the luxury of being off until January 3rd, which will afford me lots of downtime to recuperate. Our families are being great to us by celebrating the holidays on New Year’s weekend instead of this weekend so that I can enjoy them more.
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy & Happy New Year!!
