Continuing To Do Well
Friday, May 29, 2009 6:10 AM
The last few weeks have been uneventfull with the three weeks on and one week off the oral chemo. There are highs and lows of fatugue and weekness but normally follow my insistence on remaining active and accomplishing some of the realities of liquidation of excess stuff. Having passed the two year mark since being diagnosed I have been given a rare opportunity to put things in order and hopefully make the paperwork more workable. Selling off excess becomes a separation anxiety that I have gotten past but still realize that chapters of my life are closed and the new ones are yet to be written given the time to wonder, why me. Doing what I can around the house rewards me with getting to things that I've put off and much will make no difference other than keeping my mind busy and watching others continue in the hectic life that many have made for themselves.
I remain steadfast in my desire to fight the cancer since there is still traces showing in the weekly/monthly blood draws. Having got past the flu season is a plus.
Take care and enjoy the moment,

Re: Continuing To Do Well
It's great to hear that you are doing so well. You must be keeping active if you were up writing on your blog at 6:30 AM this morning. Dave and I were still trying to force our eyes open at that hour. (Ah, retirement!)
We had a wonderful visit with Karen and Ed last week when they were in Ohio. There were countless hours spent reminiscing about growing up in Geneva, and of course many of those memories included you. Karen remarked on how well you are looking. Naturally that comes as no surprise.
Keep up the good work, and enjoy the beautiful summer weather with your family.
Your friends, Dave and Carolyn
