Staying Busy

My chemo side effects so far have been minimal. Every morning I wake up and wonder when the headaches will kick in because with my first infusion of Vinorelbine … I had headaches for about four days straight … but not this time. Yippy!

I find that the chemo does make me a bit agitated so I try to fill my day with stuff to do because when I’m just sitting around, my mind wonders to the unpleasant thoughts of my future with cancer. 

Anyways, last Saturday I went for breakfast with my mom and sister. After that I spent some really nice time with my friend T from the knitting group … and for the afternoon, D and I found a nice outdoor coffee shop where we spent our time just sitting enjoying the sights and sounds of the downtown. For the evening we took a nice long walk in the nearby park. Later when my head hit the pillow it was lites out, I slept like a baby.

Yesterday, we drove south an hour and a half and spent the day with my brother and his wife. What a great time just sitting around and talking. It was another full day and another great night’s sleep.
