188 Evergreen is feeling like Grand Central Station! My in-laws left today to return to California, Lee is leaving shortly for Ohio, and Ruth, my brother Pat's wife, is coming in from DC to babysit me!

I'm so glad Lee was able to have some time with his parents. Mrs. Luckey cooked, made cream puffs, did every stitch of laundry and de-loused Colleen's and Michaela's rooms! We had a birthday dinner for Desi, Lee's sister, and grilled shrimp and scallops and veggies, topped off by Portillo's Famous Chocolate Cake. Yum.

Tomorrow I go for the Single Chemo treatment. This is the drug that has beat me with an Ugly Stick. I look like a model for ProActive Acne commercial. I'm getting some mouth sores as well, which is another common side effect of chemo, so I need to get back on the Swish & Spit regiment, and get it under control if at all possible.

On the Positive Side - No Nausea side effects with the last 2 rounds! Yay!

I'm really looking forward to spending time with Ruth this week. She's an amazing person with a great energy, focus and spirit.

I continue to be greatful to everyone who is supporting me and my family in so many wonderful ways. "Thanks" doesn't seem grand enough to convey my gratitude to all of you.

  1. Peggy,
    So glad to hear that (so far anyway) no horrible side effects from the chemo. OK-except that acne thing! You continue to amaze me with the positive attitude with which you are handling all of this. Good for you! Your strength and humor are good "life lessons" for all of us.
