Mom put up our tree in our sunroom this year, and it is perfect... this is where most of the Schweitzers are hanging out this holiday season! And for me, it is perfect, as I lie in my bed I get to have the tree 24/7, just lovely!
Well, the first round of Taxotere this time was really, really tough, and it really took the wind out of my sails..... I had all manner of nasty side effects and the worst was that it made me exceptionally weak and unable to do much of anything. It was not pleasant, PLUS I ended up with fevers, on antibiotics and with some kind of fungus thing in my mouth, also treated with meds.....
However, good thing our memories fade, as this week has brought gradual improvement..... I was pleased to make it to mom's for the family gathering with Maloneys on the 22, for Christmas eve and Christmas day..... granted, my visits were short due to my fatigue, but still, I was able to enjoy everything very much.
Gord has been working through most of the season, but since the kids are home from Winnipeg, there is plenty of activity in our home. And, thanks to the generosity of many, our fridge is full and we have wonderful selections of baking and treats. My sincere thanks to all of you who helped make our Christmas "normal" it is greatly appreciated.
We'll continue with a low-key version of events - lots of movie watching, game playing and quite stuff - reading, etc.... all things I can participate in from my bed. I'm having a great time with the family here, and am very grateful for the wonderful season.
Cheers to all !! Joanne
