I have been in better spirits this past couple of weeks. I loved being together with family and friends during the holidays. I was so happy that everyone was feeling well and we were able to be with both our families for Christmas.
This weather has really kept us cooped up. Besides doing a lot of reading I have also been enjoying the television program My Grandmother’s Ravioli with Mo Rocca on the Cooking Channel. I love all of the seniors that have been on so far. Mo seems to have a good rapport with many of them. It’s really an inspiration to see how healthy some of these grandparents are.
I am getting excited that my chemo treatments are winding down. I now have only 6 left! Luckily the only side effect from the Taxol is that my tongue is sore. It seems to be getting a little worse each time I have treatment. The only way I can describe it is it feels like I burnt it on something very hot. I just hope that it goes away after my treatments. I am getting anxious to have my mastectomy and move on to radiation. What a way to start the new year!
