Apparently, steroids enhance one's sense of well-being, and once the effects wear off the being does not feel as well.
So it is with me. It seems like once the effects of the steroids I received at the chemo treatment wore off, I was not quite as happy a camper as I had been on Friday. Luckily, this weekend I was surrounded by friends with warm hearts and loving souls. They propped me up on the deck of the lake house and nourished me with their wonderful food and tales that are still worth telling. I could close my eyes and listen to their stories, and join in when I felt like it. Many thanks for that special time.
I am still amazed by all the support that I have received since the end of May. Aside from this blog, there is a website with occasional updates and a schedule for providing food for my family and me. If you are interested, it is http://www.lotsahelpinghands.com/c/605295/
Looking ahead to this week, I am forced to maintain a day to day schedule. I know what I would like to do tomorrow, and what a 3 day weekend in the summer could look like, but I am consigned to do what I can.
I meant to thank Amy for the new photo added to the blog. Me at Canyon Ranch. Hopefully I will be back there soon.
