It’s been a while since my last post. I didn’t have a lot going on this week so there really wasn’t too much to report. The side effects of my chemotherapy treatments come and go. I had a day or two that I didn’t feel so good. It seems like early on I had a frequent upset stomach and experienced a lot of indigestion. Then, gradually, I felt much better. I guess that’s how it goes, you start feeling better right before the next treatment .
Last Friday I was visited by my friend Heather, a former co-worker. She dropped off a generous gift from the whole team at Stericyle. I was really surprised and thought it was a nice and thoughtful thing for them to do.
One thing I did do this week was finally finish a novel that I have been reading for some time now, Cider House Rules by John Irving. What a great book, I loved it! This is the first John Irving that I have read. Now I want to read all of his books.
Thursday night I met with the breast cancer support group in Kenosha, Circle of Hope. This was my second time attending. I was so happy that I went. I met a couple of women that weren’t at the last meeting. One woman is going through the same treatment that I am. I believe she is one treatment ahead of me. She was diagnosed only a week or so after me. So it will be helpful to have each other to go through this together.
I think getting together with women who have been through or are battling breast cancer can really make you feel that you are not alone. So if there are any women out there looking for a support group in the Kenosha/Racine area, please know that you are welcome to join us.
