An anniversary and a milestone

Within a day of each other. Today marks Doug's 6-month anniversary from when his treatment for tonsil cancer ended. Yesterday, he hit his milestone of finally weighing as much as I do (I tried to help by losing at the same time he was gaining, but really didn't accomplish much). He and I both weigh 161.5 lbs, which is a gain of over 25 lbs from when he ended treatment. He has another 10 lbs or so to gain back to get to "normal" but I know that will come eventually.

Given that so many of my recent posts have centered around me, and how badly I've been adjusting to life after cancer, I thought it would be a nice change to send a happy post. It sure feels good to be able to do that.

Doug is doing so well because he's received such nurturing care (remember puke bowls in every room?) My mother has told me several times that she would not be alive if not for me, and she's not blowing hot air. To you and all fellow caregivers, the work we do is always more effective than we think it is. Gotta give credit where it's due.
