Today is a bit better than yesterday. My body is healing nicely around the port in my chest and the bruising is going away. The nausea is going away slowly but is compounded by other things that I don't have the energy to go into. So, without those complications and a bit of luck, the next round of chemo should be better. Thought of the day....one of my neighbors that I work with on neighborhood stuff mentioned a couple times during meetings, "Oh, that must have been when I was sick." regarding a time period about seven years ago. I always meant to ask her about it, but it never seemed appropriate, or there were other neighbors around. Well, she emailed me right after my diagnosis and told me it was cancer. In her email, she used the words, "cancer free for seven years". I can't get "cancer free" out of my mind and during my worst bouts I think of those words, that email, her, and say, "cancer free."
