Special thanks to Jean Wozniack for coming to our home and taking a beautiful family portrait of us last week! www.jeanwozniakphotography.com
Yesterday I completed the 13th day and I'm still feeling good. A bit tired in the evenings and friends have dropped off a few meals in my cooler on the front porch at dinner time to help out which is wonderful. That's around the time of day when I start to slow down and want to rest. Thank you so much for those who have dropped off food for us!
I look forward to the weekends off and seem to have more energy on those days:) My skin is still doing really well. My goal is to get all the Christmas gifts wrapped early in case I start to get more tired as time goes on. I'm off to the school holiday fair to start off the weekend right!
Things have been going well with my radiation treatments. I also began an oral low dose chemo 5FU about 4 days ago which will make any remaining abnormal cells that may be present more sensitive to the treatment. I put Caledula cream by Highlands Homeopathic on the left side area of that breast and underarm a couple times a day and have noticed no skin irritation as of yet from the treatments. I do notice dryer throat from the oral pill and dry skin. They told me to wear gloves if I use any cleaning agents even if natural types and to avoid hot or cold water temps when bathing.
Also today I am with my oldest who is getting his wisdom teeth removed so there is always something else going on when you are a mother of 3 for sure!
I'm singing for a "Blue Christmas" service tonight dedicated to people who may have a less than happy holiday season due to a loss of a loved one. The song called "The Yearning" is beautiful and a friend in town pulled together some other singers she knew to create 4 part harmonies. Looking forward to hopefully offering comfort to those who may need a little extra boost this time of year. I just love the holiday season, and once again my husband went out to find us the biggest tree he could fit into our family room! Such a lovely time of year...
