Adjuvent Chemo, Day 1

Today at 1:00 PM I was back in the chemo chair. It was strange to go back to the same rooms that I was in a few months ago. Truthfully I was quite anxious and nervous. After 3 hours I was done and will have to go back tomorrow and Sunday for a short session. After that I have one month before my next cycle. I am hoping that the side effects will be as tolerable as they were in Spring. Hopefully I will be well enough to go to Germany on the 15th of December.

Dear Olaf, I cannot even begin to imagine what you are going through, again. Please know that everyone is with you and hoping with every prayer possible, that your wish to go home for Christmas, comes true. Thanks for the update--I was worried about you.
Take Care

I know that wasn't an easy decision for you to make. But I'm hopeful you won't be too unwell and uncomfortable. Thinking of you always.

Hey Olaf, Thank you so much for coming out tonight, I hadn't realized that your treatment was this weekend. My days have run together lately. I couldn't even imagine how much energy that took for you to be here. Praying for you and Angie. Much love always.

Hey, you are doing the thing! Granted, it is the shitty thing to do again, but this is the best route to take. Still up for the visit to the artist for both purposes???

Hang in there. Thinking about you!

Olaf - so wonderful to hear your beautiful voice on the phone last night -- but sorry we missed you. Hopefully Germany will be a go. Enjoy the goodies. Quick Tip -- heat the apple sauce up and put it on vanilla ice cream - one of our favorite things!!!Hugs to you and Ange -- Elaine and Leonard
