End of a process, start of a new one?

I cannot say how much i appreciate not being chained to a perfusion, and not having to wait for the next 10 days before a new chemo session.

Now is a time of clean-up, detox, rebuilding and enjoying the more clement weather that is coming up here.

I'm very grateful i managed to do this without missing any session, and without too many side-effects (which i described earlier).

I'm elated that my total consumption of pills during the 5 months that this has lasted amounts to 2, one anti-nausea during the first session, and an anti-diorreah (Immodium) during the second.

I did my part in reducing the over-use and over-prescription of pills, as i was asked every two weeks if i need a new prescription, or some other drug against this or that.

I must confess that i didn't feel pain during those months, just some level of fatigue, in fact after lunch and a few errands, i crashed when back home, and must have slept three hours, in the warm embrace of our trusted cat.

I want to thank all of you who took time to read this blog, and while it will be continued, due to a number of milestones coming up in one month, which should definitely sell the end of this adventure, i will from time to time continue posting some remarks or recollections.

TO any of you who is suffering from one of the many forms of cancer, or who has a family member of friend currently suffering, i hope that this place helped you somehow, gave you some perspective, a few ideas, a hope for the best.

While a difficult adventure, the end-result as well as the process will benefit greatly from an open mind and a positive attitude.

May the force be with you all!
