Hope everyone had a great start to their week. It’s been about 12 days since I’ve written on this blog. During this time it’s just been nice to get back to a normal schedule and not think (or write) too much about my health situation, but rather just soak up the good news from the doctor. It’s been about a month since I’ve had chemo and I’m feeling pretty damn good. Energy levels and exercise have increased while the bloating has slowly left me with the steroids no longer being a part of the equation. I’ll continue to amp things up as I’m able and of course make sure I get the rest I need. The good news is I’m sleeping through the night and no longer dealing with the insomnia or sleeping on the couch. My next doctor appointment is going to be on April 29 where I’ll be given the Rituxin (1 of the chemo drugs) – so that gives me about 18 more days ha.
On another note, this evening we went to my sister’s house in Ballard and celebrated my niece’s 9th birthday. How quickly she has grown up – time has just flown by. Her dad, Erik, handled the bbq and Mark (Erik’s dad) and Margie (Mark’s wife) brought over a beautiful cake. My mom, Uncle Marty and Dan also took part. We had a great time despite the rainy weather.
This coming weekend we’ll be going to a wedding for our friend Kim. We’ve known her since 2005 when we purchased Daisy as a pup. She showed Daisy through her Championships and now is showing Duke. It should be a blast as her Fiance, Ernie, is just a peach. He cracks us up and we are really looking forward to the wedding reception. We are very happy for both of them.
Have a great week everyone and thanks again for the sweet emails of encouragement since this journey started.
