Had my second treatment on the 31st and as you can see I made it to the other side. Feeling relatively good some days, others not so much but I think better than last time. You know the old saying "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger"! You have no idea how I've come to hate that saying over the past few years. I tend to look up to the heavens every once in a while and ask - "So, am I strong enough yet????" At any rate - one day at a time is really how I'm getting through it.
The Farmer's Wife - 64 Blocks done! Woohoo!!!! I am now prepping the next five or ten or more....depends on the neuropathy in my fingers whether or not I can continue doing hand piecing. Here are the last 3 I finished in the past couple of weeks....
Block # 42 - Fruit Basket - 29 Pieces
Block # 45 - Grape Basket - 29 Pieces
Block # 49 - Honeycomb - 24 Pieces
Not a lot done but it is progressing. I found them a little tedious this time and I look around and see everything else that needs to be done. Jonathan says I can't die because my bucket list is too long.....ha, ha!
Gillian came by a couple of weeks ago to take me on an outing (the week before my last chemo) and of course, she could not sit still so there we were on the patio and she started a major clean-up effort. I should have taken a photo of the before but I really wasn't thinking.... Now I have this absolutely gorgeous place to sit and enjoy....
