We had a very quiet Thanksgiving, Mark and I celebrated by ourselves at home. We went for an afternoon walk at Petrifying Springs in Kenosha. Then on Saturday my girlfriend Michelle came over and decorated my head with a henna tattoo (also known as Mehndi) using the henna cones my neighbor Angela so generously lent me last week. I am so happy with the results. Michelle did a wonderful job on her first time working with henna. I look forward to having it done again while my head is still bald.

On Monday afternoon I had my second treatment of Taxol and I’m feeling pretty good. I did notice over the past few days a little tingling in my fingertips and toes. This is something that the doctor told me could happen. The common side effect from Taxol is peripheral neuropathy. I just hope that it doesn’t get too bad and that it does not hang around permanently.
