For whatever reason, my chemo effects seem to be lingering longer now. In fact, my face rash came back and spread to my forehead today. Just when I think I know what to expect, it changes on me. At least it’s not anything new, and it’s almost over! Since I was tired most of the weekend, I decided to take today off work while I felt ok and the weather was decent.
After a busy morning of bloodwork and doctor appointments and answering work texts and phone calls (so much for a day off!), Patrick and I went to an antique shop I’ve been wanting to go to for a while. Then we had lunch outside at one of our favorite restaurants. We’ve gotten carry out in the 6 months, but we haven’t sat and dined at a restaurant since last Fall. It felt GOOD! I even (with my doctor’s permission) had a small beer with lunch. It tasted GOOD! We were the only ones sitting outside, but it really was a big deal to be doing something that was previously so normal for us. I’m thankful for a little respite before tomorrow’s treatment and the effects to follow.
