It is both moving quickly and crawling along. The hours and long and the weeks are short. Or the weeks are long and the hours are short. Hard to tell. 🙂 I originally had 16 treatments in 20 weeks. I now have 4 more treatments to go! I am definitely feeling the grind of the weekly schedule. Mondays and Tuesdays are major fatigue days. Wednesdays and Thursdays, I begin to pull out of it. By Friday and the weekend I’m feeling more energized. Just to come crashing back down each Monday.
As usual throughout this whole process, we are continually blown away by the caring, loving, and giving people around us. Four of Ryan’s life-long buddies from Kansas drove down over the weekend. They spend their entire time working around the house for us! They did ALL of the yard work, including mulch. They power washed the front and back patios, and the chimney. They even hung our Christmas lights for us! It was wonderful to have them here. Ryan and I are so grateful and felt so loved.
I know that while chemotherapy is soon coming to a close, (good riddens!) it will only open the door to a long and sometimes painful 2020 full of surgery and radiation and more surgery. But I am grateful that this first chapter is closing, and praying that I am 100% cancer free at my next scan (I’m not sure when that is going to be). Thank you for your continued prayers, texts, emails, phone calls, and cards. They mean the world to us!
