Better today

Not having chemotherapy yesterday has given me more energy today. Despite awakening at 3:19 AM and being unable to return to sleep, I caught up on email, walked the dog for the first time since Thursday, swept the floors, ironed a half dozen of Rik's shirts and we went out to see a matinee. A much better day!

Yesterday at the local Fred Meyer (everything-cum-grocery store), I picked up a pair of sheepskin fleece lined bedroom slippers at a highly reduced price. The toasty warm slippers make my feet feel so much better, and the left shoe easily accommodates my old lift. The slippers are fully soled in rubber, so I don't slip on the wood floors. My feet are still numb, but I am moving around more easily since they are warm. I am so glad I thought of fleece.

  1. I want to say that you should not loose hope. I know it's going to be hard but you have to be patient and pray always. I want to know if you have already worked with an alternative cancer treatment center? I know an cancer treatment center. I just hope that you can browse through their site and see what they can do for you. Thanks.
