Hello dear ones!

Today is #5 of 6... not nearly as nervous. (This does not mean that I am NOT nervous, mind you! *grin*)

Somehow, Chemo #5 just doesn't sound as pretty as Chanel #5, does it? *wink* Trust me, in my mind.. Chemo #6 has a much better ring to it! I'll be happiest, of course, when that last drop of it is gone!!!

I know I've been quiet for a while now but I try to keep up with everyone and am sending along all my best thru' your trials and victories/celebrations! The chemo is slowing me down a bit but in all, life is good. The last few days before the next hit is my high time... I am all energy and glow. It takes nearly 3 wks to get there, mind you! *smiles* I've gained abou 12lbs and my colour is good... my hair is starting to grow back.. I am fuzzy now. *laughs* Never DID lose the hair on my legs!!! EVERYWHERE but my legs!.. well, my nose hairs stayed on for the duration as well... gosh, why doesn't anyone ever ask after my poor little nasal hairs? *laughing*

Be well all. I am still with you and wish you all the best!
Love and hugs!
Marty (in Michigan, US)

Hey Marty....where in MI??? Just curious...I am originally from southwest MI...a town called Dowagiac. We still spend a couple months in the summer in my husband's home town of Niles. We live in south Florida the rest of the year. And why DOESN"T the hair on your legs go away???? HA! Prayers for you that #5 will go well. You're almost done!!! YEA!! God bless, Cyndi

Hi Marty - glad to hear your nearing the end of chemo. I remember that feeling well!
And why is it that the hair on our legs never goes away? My grew a little more slowly, but I never got to stop shaving my legs. No eyebrows, no eyelashes, no hair on my head or even in my armpits, but there it was on my legs. Kind of a cruel joke I think. Take care - I'll send lots of positive thoughts and prayers your way.
Peace - Diane
