    You must keep posting us the reminder to enjoy life
    Since I can not afford to go out of the country, we are traveling through Europe by visiting the most authentic international restaurants in the area. We do one restaurant per month. This weekend it is Greek!!! Oh we try the local liquor too. Umpah!

    If the weather holds, plan to get out and clean out the flower beds in preparation for setting out flowers in the next month or so. Will also be pruning back some bushes around the house which have gotten out of hand. The butterfly bush outside the kitchen window is over 7 ft tall!

    Have a great weekend.

    hi pepe,
    Its been a crap night, up most of it, must have done 12 bags in the last 24 hours, same old diarrhea not good, a bit too intense. worst i have had for a month at least i'd say.
    so have ditched natropathy diarrhea solution until this bout settles and hit the colon with good old codienne and gastrow stop. at least it works. I think I woke up every hour last night with a full bag, somehow my bag burst alarm just goes off, and i wake. its just on sunrise now and I am taking the dogs for a big walk to the cemetry over 2 hours away. I just found out we are placing my aunty val's ashes in her spot. she passed away with lung cancer november 2010. I hope to have a sleep mid morning with any luck.

    I am looking at my overcast sunrise and thinking of john and praying.
    hugs

    Friends for a BQ
    We are getting together with friends to have a BBQ. Hopefully it does not Rain as is expected by the weather forecast. Most of next week I have friends coming from out of town on different days.

    I am hoping I will be well enough to visit with everyone.

    Lately I have been feeling run down with the chemo. I think I am done with Chemo. There comes a point when I have to ask myself if it is damaging my body more then will one more treatment really make a difference? My oncologist wants me to do one more treatment. I am not sure my body will tolerate it. Will one more treatment give me a 10% difference or little to no difference? I have been doing the FolFox treatment sine the beginning of October. I have little feeling in my toes and numbness in my fingers 100% of the time. I am concerned that the neuropathy maybe permanent.

    Best Always Everyone! mike

    Nothing big
    Gonna' try to go for a longer walk than usual. Down in my back again so wish me well:)

    Mainly I am going to meditate, send out sparks of love, positive vibes, and much prayer for my brothers and sisters here who are having to deal with so much more than I can even imagine...and they are so strong and gracious.

    Y'all have a good one. It is Springtime in the South. Yay!

    chemo disconnect
    I get disconnected tomorrow. It is suipposed to be decent outside here tomorrow - 50 degrees F again. Not great, but maybe nice enough that I will get a little walk in after disconnect. I've been having port issues and some pain near my port this time, and if it doesn't go away after disconnect, I have to go in for a dye test. Fingers crossed...

    Yes, life must go on
    I'm glad you posted. Life must go on -- I know all would agree.

    This is a non-chemo weekend for me (yea!). Tomorrow Sunday I am having a BBQ with good friends -- same as Mike (thxmiker). Also hoping the rain stops! I'm doing a sun-dance today!

    Partial answer
    My answer will be in a new post I'll be putting up in a minute. I will say that yesterday I helped host a Teddy Bear Tea with my sorority. Then I was hostess for a Relay For Life reception for survivors and caregivers.
