This photo is of the boys that are now retired from the Scorpions Field Lacrosse team because they're all now too old. How sad. It's nice to have a photo of them with their incredible coaches, Al and Mike.
Today I started my dexamethasone (my 'roid) and I'm just trippin'! I first realized it when I was typing an email and I was amazed at how fast I was typing. My fingers were flying. Yup. Uppers. How else to explain?! And then it occurred to me that I'd done a lot of errands during the day and seemed to have some extra energy and felt warmer than I normally would have. It has to be the dexamethasone. Tonight Lynn picked me up and we went looking at show homes in Stonebridge and then stopped by Kathy's place for a moment. Always nice to see Kath. And now here I am ... still flyin'! What a good feeling! Of course, this also means a sleeping pill tonight, which I'm not so thrilled about. Still, I know I need them to get through the "tired but wired" part. Suck it up. I do understand how people can get hooked on using these uppers and downers, though. I do like feeling oddly energetic and even hyper for a change.
Thanks, everyone, for your comments, emails and phone calls. I'll wrap myself in the comfort of your care and prayers and barrel on through this chemo and then ... only 1 left!!! Nurse Cratchet will be with me. I'll miss Kevin and his helpful attention to detail but Syl will be hot on all of that, I know. Mom will be in tomorrow to stay with me for a while. I'm in the safe and caring hands of my two Moms and all of you, too.
Good night, everyone! Tomorrow we kick some cancer cell butt!
