Home from the cruise
This photo was taken of Gord and I by our lovely neighbours (Vince and Anita) in the next door stateroom on our cruise. The photo is of Gord and I on our balcony, we were waiting to go ashore on St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.
We had a great time on our cruise, despite that fact that we had a few days of poor weather and also a couple of very rough sea days.... even so, the ship was beautiful, the islands too, it was relaxing and re-energizing all at once. We visited Puerto Rico, Antigua, St. Thomas and Bahamas..... turns out we LOVE cruising as a vacation and I only wish we had another one booked to look forward to!
I am feeling very well, I had no real restrictions (apart from getting extra sleep), and I enjoyed the entire vacation.
Medically, a bit of news... I finally have a Saskatchewan oncologist, and will see him January 19. The CT scans were unfortunately dissappointing, as I was hoping for further shrinkage of the tumors, but this did not happen. However, there are no new spots, and it is hard to tell if I am stable, based on the last CT scan. So, the plan is to rescan in 8-12 weeks (I chose 8) and that will tell us what we need to do next. So, I am still on "chemo-vacation" over Christmas, and I am VERY grateful for that.
Cheers to everyone...... Joanne
