One Month Later and One More Round of Chemo Down.

Well, it has been a month since I last posted here.  Things have been going fairly smoothly.  Considering I'm on chemo, I think all in all, it's not as bad as I expected.  I've had some bad days, but mostly good ones.  I'm often tired, but since I don't have to go to work, I am able to take naps whenever I feel the need. 

Thursday February 16th will be my next chemo treatment.  Then I will be at the half-way mark as far as my chemo treatments.  This past Thursday I went in for my counts to be checked.  Everything was very good and my counts were high.  I saw the PA this time and she said she was amazed at how well I am doing.  

Sorry, I don't have more to report, but actually I guess that is a good thing.  Thank you all for your comments on here, cards, emails, phone calls, & messages on FB.  I really appreciate hearing from all of you.  Also, thank you for your prayers on my behalf.   

My sister and brother-in-law stopped by the other day and brought me this sweet teddy bear.   The people in  their church have been praying for me and they have a really neat custom.  A teddy bear is passed around the congregation and each person prays for the person mentioned.  The tag says "Hello, The Hartford Yoked Parish has hugged me and prayed with me.  Now I bring you all the love and prayers I represent.  May you find the fullness of God's tender, loving care."


  1. Love the teddy tradition and love hearing you are doing so well. Thata girl!!!!

  2. Great report my friend.. We just saw the bears at the Methodist church when we were at Bill's Mothers funeral.. Great tradition. Keep up the good work.
