Just a quick follow-up to let you know that today's chemo treatment went smoothly. I was there, with my cousin Alexis (Portland, OR) from 9am to 4pm, then came home and napped for a while. Imagining that the next few days will be on the crummy side for me, but I think I have a better handle on how to use the medications to make things more manageable.
This is the epiphany I had today, guys: with your help, I just might be able to do this. I'm struggling to find a way to say something more than thank you, so I'll share this quote I read recently:
"You can cut off all the flowers, but you cannot keep spring from coming. " - Pablo Neruda.
I'll be in touch again soon.
PS- Someone sent me the DVD of To Kill A Mockingbird and somebody else sent me Mark Nepo's Book of Awakening, but I don't know who? First, thanks! Second, drop me a note to let me know it was you!
