I woke up at 3:00 a.m. to the sound of joyful voices still in the house. I thought it was Hannah and her friends but it turns out that she was tucked into her bed long before then. I guess Luke brought home a bunch of friends after their night at Amigos. He's still asleep. With his socks on. Silly boy!
My radiation treatment is today at 1:00 and I'll see a doctor at that time, though not my usual radiation oncologist.
Yesterday I heard from a Saskatchewan woman, Berny, who has been my route only a few steps ahead of me. I have been following her blog and had commented on it in August and she only just found my comment and sent me an email. Some of the things she's written in her emails so echoes my own thoughts and experiences that it feels like we should be having a sleep over together, talking and giggling through the night, like when we were kids. It's funny. And helpful. I have found her blog to be very helpful and comforting to me because we're experiencing a lot of the same drugs and in the same medical system. In fact, we've had the same oncologist and are both a little nervous about not yet having been assigned an oncologist at this point because we both have a pressing and time sensitive need for oncological direction. Berny has shared some useful tips and suggestions with me. Thanks, Berny!
Merry Christmas Eve's Day, everyone!
