I am sorry that it took me so very long to write a new entry.
My Christmas in Germany was wonderful. It was definitely a time of emotional healing. It was soothing to be with my family. I was able to talk to them if I needed to and we were comfortable to be quiet with each other as weIl. It was important for me to see my dad and my sister for the first time in person since the cancer started. I am also sure it was good for my mother to see me recover physically since she saw me last. During my 12 days there it became obvious that my old me came more and more to the forefront again. There were moments when I laughed while having a beer with old friends when I actually forgot about my troubles for a while. Life is starting to look a little bit better every day right now.
It was also good to be back. Angela and I had friends over for new years eve which was fun. It wasn't hard for me to say good-bye to 2009. Not exactly my best year. Here is to a more hopeful 2010!
Today I started my last round of chemo. I have been dreading it but at least it will be over soon. Just a couple more weeks of uncomfortableness and then I will finally be able to return to a more normal life. I am excited to be back at work full time. I am sure Clint is looking forward to have his business partner back as well.
Last week we had a meeting with my oncologist who was also visibly very pleased with the MRI results from early December. Apparently the written report states that the remaining tumour is most likely fatty deposits. Things feel very hopeful at the moment. My next scan will be in the end of February.
It feels like we are turning a page right now...
