Yep. Five in a row. Five days of feeling good. I can't complain. Sure, I fell up the (wooden) stairs today, and I'm sure my right leg will be eight shades of purple tomorrow, but that's nothing compared to chemos 1 and 2. And I'm even in the dangerous "days 10 to 14" (I'm on day 11). Fingers crossed, chemo three may indeed be the charm. I was feeling good enough today to be telling myself I really, really, really need to be working more. I will pace myself (I promise) but I plan on having a very productive work week ahead.
I had a nice quiet weekend with some reading, some writing, a walk with Chris and Seamus, and a few little projects (I even remembered to send birthday cards to folks!! If your birthday falls between April 17 and April 26--you may be among the only folks whose birthdays I remember and acknowledge in a timely fashion this year! for the rest of you--let me just say "Happy Birthday!!"). Tonight I even joined my writer's group at MICHELLE OUELLETTE'S for a fabulous dinner and writing discussion. This is also important because it means Seamus got to a) run with Michelle's dogs Will and Nellie (Seamus heart Will) and b) steal a hamburger. All while we hung out in Michelle's beautiful newly landscaped backyard that has a distinctly French Provencal look. Ahhhh. Nice. Relaxing. In other words, this weekend--I got to be non-cancer person.
I realize that makes for a boring blog. And I'm sorry, but I have to say, I'm hoping for more boring blogs in my future. I hope you understand.
(the photo is one I took in France when Michelle, Rachel and I went out walking and came across this shop. Michelle didn't have her camera and I'm never without mine, so I took the photo for her. This wall inspired a lovely blue wall in her new backyard.)
