It’s been a while since I’ve posted – don’t say I didn’t warn you! I am doing well, though… just not spending much time on the computer these days. I did get my hair cut, though… as you can see above. It is a good transition between long hair and no hair and I think I’ll keep it short after this is all over. The doctor told me to expect to lose my hair this week, so I have been buying scarves and friends have offered to help me learn how to make myself cute turbans. Another friend is sewing me some caps so I should be all set when the hair finally goes.
The chemotherapy has its ups and downs – some days I am very tired and some I have tons of energy and have to hold myself back from doing too much. I haven’t had too many side effects -certainly nothing major – and I am happy about that.
I have spent a fair bit of time on the couch reading, and have read some wonderful books. I’ll be doing a post on my favorite books of 2012 soon, if you’re interested. While on the couch I ALWAYS have my two furry friends with me, as you can see in the pictures above and below. Poor Henry, though, is at this moment at the vet’s office having surgery on his bladder for stones. So Paul will have two of us to care for tonight! Good thing I am feeling so good.
I’ve gone out to eat several times and try to get a walk every day, so you will see me out and about. I’ve been skipping large gatherings, though, since it would be hard to keep from catching a cold in a crowd and I really want to stay healthy.
The weather is perfect here, I feel so lucky that I am in chemo now rather than during the sweaty days of summer. Hope you are all well and happy and I’ll be back soon!
