Resumption of Same Treatments

Yesterday they resumed the same treatments as the last cycle was- weekly treatments for 8 more weeks, and the reassess. These were not easy treatments before, I hope they are not going to be so hard on me this time around. I will approach them differently this time. I will take a break next week from treatment, and wil take another one at the end of June so I can find time to recuperate more from one to the next.  Too many of such breaks and the doctors would get suspicious, but one here and there will not be an issue.
Today's treatment went quite well. I let Julia drive home though. I was a bit dizzy and lightheaded after it all. And now I can't deal properly with the itch so I am up late typing this post. Can't sleep because of various things, but that's ok, sleep is not promised to be ours. We all have experienced sleeplessness nights in our lives. It's not the end of the world. At least I got to see Vancouver beat the Sharks in 5th period of their game. What a fluukie goal it was.
Anyways, thanks again for your supportive prayers for us


  1. I've dealt with itchy feet at night for years and someone once gave me some bear fat that was supposed to be the best thing to take away itch...didn't really work for me, but it's worth a shot...if you can find a bear around there. We love you both and think and pray for you often. Praying that God would give you comfort.

  2. Thanks Tam! The itch was only for a night- the one following the treatment. Last night was itch free. I mostly have not dealt with itch lately, except the night after treatment. I lather myself full of Aveeno after a shower just before bed, and that seems to work along with some pills. Thanks so much for your ongoing prayers.
