Friends Make the Good Times Better card ~ Waterfront And Update

A quick update on my cancer journey.  I found another positive to chemo I had never heard of.  I have skin that attracts bugs so during the summer I either have to spray or wear clothes that cover my skin.  Still I usually get eaten alive when I am outside during the summer.  Last Thursday, I was at a picnic right by a lake with some ladies.  I noticed they were getting bitten.  I was not.  Quite honestly, I do not blame the bugs for not liking chemo, but I found it to be a plus.  I have been sleeping well so keep those prayers up.  I actually wore panty hose today to a funeral and had no problems getting them on.  Yay physical therapy!!!  I had to move up my chemo this week from Tuesday because of my neighbor receiving a big award at the Nixon Centre on Tuesday.  They moved it up to Thursday so everything will hit with the side effects probably on the weekend and the following week.  When I choose to stay close to home.  So not so bad.  Onwards!  I had earned the cruise to the Greek Isles but had not cashed it in yet.  My English girlfriend (since I was 13) said she can go with me on it, so I cashed it in.  It will be in 2019 so I am thinking forward and was brave enough to cash it in.  No turning back.  That is it for now.  Stay tuned because this journey always has interesting discoveries.  Thank you all for sticking with me!
