I hope to encourage you that 4 years into treatment and nearly 100 chemo treatments Dick made a fabulous trip to Italy with his best friend. Our friend's daughter was in the World Cup for ski jumping in the Italian Alps and Dick and his buddy went to see her compete. Dick had chemo on Wednesday and left Friday morning. They took it easy on the travel and arrived in Italy on Monday. On Wednesday, they went skiing and it was a beautiful day! At first I was thinking, "Does he really want to ski in another country while actively fighting cancer?" Then I thought, "Heck yah!" He had a great trip and managed his side effects pretty well.
I hope that encourages some of you new folks and also some of you who have been in this for years too.
Thinking of all of you.
