For those of you who told me Taxol was a walk in the park compared to AC, so far you are absolutely correct! Aside from tiredness, it has been a great weekend.
Friday night I went to grandson Ike's 4th grade play, a Norse Myth where he had the (hilarious) role of Loki. A phrase from one of his lines spoken, "...from chaos to cunning..." Yep that's my boy Ikey! He did so well and was so present on the stage (he's on the left).
Yesterday I slept until noon! So crazy for me. But then went to both Ike's and Satchel's little league games. It was a big day for Satch because, not only did he strike out eight players from the mound, he hit a home run over the center field fence out of the park! Here he is, grinning from ear-to-ear with the home run ball. He was so tickled and so proud. He has worked very hard for this!
And then today Alex and Laura and Sam invited me for a Sunday drive which was just what I needed. I do so much better when I get out and enjoy the day! We went to The Geysers in Calastoga to see the new baby goats, browsed a bit in the downtown shops, then into Gotts Roadside Drive-In in St. Helena for dinner. It felt like we were on summer vacation. The weather was so beautiful. People having fun everywhere. Birds singing. Music. Lemonade. Milkshakes. Lovely!
Just a few little snapshots to spice up the post, but my main purpose here was to tell you that my chemo infusion went off without an allergic hitch, and that I'm really feeling very few side effects from these new drugs. Thank you so much for the love and prayers sent. xoxo
