Getting Ready to Travel, Again.

I got this pic yesterday; what a difference from 6 weeks ago when I was carrying 30 pounds of water around my waist and on my legs.  Praise God that we seem to have found the right mix of drugs and nutrition to keep those fluids off me!

We're getting ready to make our trip back to Tennessee for my reunion with school from Japan.  It's nice for me that it's in my hometown, so that we can visit family and old sentimental places to me.  I'm so grateful that I'm able to make this trip!  Whatever went awry with my body in June, has completely corrected.  I feel great.  I don't have much energy or stamina for very long, but as long as I can get rest, I'm okay.  Fatigue is a common side effect of chemo, so it's just something I have to learn how to tolerate since it looks like I'll be taking chemo for the rest of my life.

We're blessed to have great folks here who will look after the house and yard for us!  That's a big relief!


  1. Happy you are doing so well ! Not sure if Shoney's is still in business but Cracker Barrel is, so enjoy your trip !!!!

  2. HB, I'm not sure about Shoney's either, but I think they are open in some places. Like you said, certainly the Cracker Barrell is. Both Lee and I like it, so we'll be fine. I'm going to do my best to take it easy (?!) on this trip and sure hope I don't let my body get out of control, again! I'm not taking any tents with me to wear, so I'd better not start swelling! If I do, there's always Wal-Mart Maybe I will go stick a tent in my suitcase . . . I hate when I keep adding stuff to the suitcase!
