Chemo went well today ... in fact I was out in record breaking time ... only three hours. Generally it's almost four hours. Yesterday I got a call to come in for chemo in the morning instead of the afternoon time. Looks like the rescheduling worked out great. Unfortunately, that meant I missed my cognitive behavior group.

I must mention the volunteer on the 4th floor chemo area is outstanding. I'm not going to mention his name but he is a regular there. He must have asked me 5 times if I needed anything. He asked if I wanted the blinds closed because he noticed the sun was in my face. He just appears to be a very kind and considerate man.

Instead of watching a movie, I spent my time studying for my midterm exam tonight. I still have a few hours before my class and plan on using that time wisely.

I'm feeling good right now. As my energy level drops later in the day, I have my steroids that will give me the boost I need.

Outside we have a very sunny day but the temperature is -30°C ... just wanted my southern blogger friends to know. Grrrrrrrrrr!

Hi Daria
Just letting you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Even though I am not here regularly, please know you are never far from my thoughts.

I just began reading your blog yesterday and I am a little embarassed at the babyish way I seem to be coping. I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago. I have cancer supposedly in two separate areas of my breast as well as lymph node involvement..

I find that I am overwhelmed and down right pissed off. Then I read how bre you are ...I need to sit back and do some serious soul searching..
Your blog has given me inspiration...
Thank You Alli... I live in Ontario, it was cold in Niagara too....
