This time tomorrow I should be home from my first chemo treatment. As I sit on my couch I am cuddled under a cozy electric throw. While writing this I am surrounded by…ok clutter mostly…but my Christmas tree is half decorated, a poinsettia and orchid from the church where I worked this past summer and flower arrangements from each of my brothers and their spouses. There are some new things on my tree this year. I have a couple of the ornaments my mother used to have on her tree, and I have a really nice new one from friends. I am feeling pretty spoiled for sure!
I am thinking about what I may want to do when I get a break of more than 3 weeks from treatment. I think there are some places I would like to go to visit, like Scotland, Newfoundland, and Canada’s northern territories. Of course, the first thing is to get through treatments, and so off we go!
