A better way to receive chemotherapy


This chemo (Xeloda) is oral.... I take two doses per day - here I am taking my morning dose in the Arizona sunshine, in mom and dad's back yard. Beats the "chemo room" in a heartbeat !!!

Hi Jo,
What a great picture! I hope that you have soaked up all of that warmth and sunshine to take back with you to Regina. It sounds like you had a nice time - I'm glad that you could be all together as a family.
I'm looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks!

Hi Joanne,
If only all chemo drugs could be administered on the patio in Scottsdale.....
Great to see the picture and to hear that you all had a good time.
Talk to you soon.

Hey you look good missus! Hope you're managing to enjoy yourself and that the feet and hands are not reacting to it too much.

Spring is making headway here.

Hi Joanne,
We've been on that patio in Scottsdale so know what a great setting it is! I'm sure you all enjoyed your stay there. We really enjoyed seeing Michelle and Craig even though it was a very short visit! Hope you are doing OK with the oral chemo and that the side effects will be minimal. Love, Nick and Lorraine

Directed here from Apprentice's blog, your pink is a little like mine!

Lovely to see your smile like this - in fact you're always smiling!
