Chemo #6

Oops, no picture today!  I was lucky to have dear, sweet friend come along today.  We spent many hours watching our little ones play when they were in preschool, sadly she and her sweet family moved the morning after our “big kids” graduated from preschool.  It was a treat to see her again today after much too long an absence.  We scored a private room and chatted about everything—catching up on family, friends, new things in our lives.  We ordered lunch from Lost Dog (like the good old days!) and managed to get them to deliver it to us at the infusion center.  Good times.  Needless to say, all the chatting and eating and catching up distracted us, so no picture today.  Suffice it to say I’d have had a big smile on my face if we’d remembered.

I’m still feeling well, not a bit of nausea– so thankful!  This round of chemo is a little harder– there are a couple of days when I’m pretty beat and have some weird bone pain. Even that’s not so bad, though.  I’ve been having hot flashes– how fun is that?! Thankfully, though, I’ve been able to get some medications to keep that under control, and so I’ve been more comfortable and sleeping much better. I’ve also started having some neuropathy– three of my fingertips feel sort of funny, like when you come in from the cold and they’re just a little numb.  It’s expected, and not a problem until I can’t do things like put on my jewelry.  Knowing how much I like my jewelry, that would be a big problem, so I’m hoping that won’t be an issue.  Glad they’re ready to nip it in the bud if it comes to that!
