Just back in the saddle after a 2 day fight with the intestinal virus...that ran rampant through the kids school and hit me hard over the weekend! Our cancer scars make these things even harder to deal with! Spent the whole night being reminded of our old treatment regimens, and it gave me renewed respect for all of you in treatment right now. Life can be so much harder to enjoy when you don't feel right, when things don't smell right or taste right. I did resort to one coping device, I did a crossword puzzle as soon as I could sit up...it helped, just like it used to. So many people here, so many hard times. Keep up the fight survivors! Our battle alone is victory! And Kanga....every time I got good news on my follow-ups I usually started some stupid argument at home or spiraled off on some tantrum for awhile. Just part of this tricky and unpredictable landscape! It will get better.
