This is day five since they started my chemo pump, and it’s gone better than I ever hoped. Even on the worst day, Friday, I was able to watch movies and read a little bit. I’ve been able to eat, which has helped me pull out of it faster. Yesterday I even went for a short walk, with my trekking poles, and Dad watching over me. It was a glorious bright afternoon, and I walked down to the corner and a short way along Hilltop. I’m elated to know I can do this. Thank you for all your prayers. I know it’s made a big difference. I can feel a huge wave of support carrying me along.
The kitties have been my constant companions, especially Scout. I can’t say I like having him jump into my lap and knead me with his giant paws, and sometimes I have to push him away, but he’s trying to do his part. Sonia curls up next to me in the recliner. I’m glad for their support and sympathy. I’ve had a lot of wonderful messages on my phone from people wishing me well. That’s the only good thing about having cancer–you find out how nice people are.
I guess you all saw the post from Sharon about submitting her application to the University of Maryland School of Nursing. We’re so happy that she’s come this far! I know all of us are praying for her to be accepted. She’ll certainly make a wonderful nurse.
My brain is really dull from the chemo and I can’t think of anything more to write.
I love you all! Thanks again for your prayers! Mom
