10 days out from the 4th round of chemo now. The post title says it all...sometimes it changes by the hour. I'm not going to elaborate; I'd rather try not to think about it when I don't have to!
Bill and Laura drove in from Colorado last weekend for the family birthday party for his brother and him-it's gotten so hard to get everyone together that my nephew's birthday has been mixed in as well. It was fun to watch everyone playing baseball, though I miss being able to take a turn at bat or in the outfield. Maybe next year...
While they were here they told the rest of the family that they're expecting their first child-that definitely put everyone in a happy place, and combined with the first really nice day of spring (78F. and sunny with a light wind) it was just a wonderful day. Dottie grilled chicken (I'm a bit wary of getting too close to an open flame when I'm on bottled oxygen) and the day before she had made two apple pies (Bill's choice for his birthday "cake") and a toll pan cookie (John's choice for his). My sister brought a crock pot full of "cheesy potatoes" and ice cream, and everyone had a great time.
I didn't do much, but I'm at the "low ebb" from my last round of chemo and just being out in the fresh air for 7 or 8 hours was enough to have me exhausted by the time we came home. There are times that "tired" just doesn't cover it...these past few days have been one of them!
May the week be kind to each of you!
