Okay, did that post title make you snap to attention? You are probably wondering if I am taking the summer off from blogging. No way. Don’t panic! I will still be blogging.
However, the routine of our lives will change and improve for the next two months. Mr. Jim is taking a needed break from chemotherapy! His scan last week showed that his cancer has not progressed any further. The six rounds of chemo successfully held it at bay. The regimen was very tough and produced a lot of adverse side effects. My regular followers know that he has been hospitalized twice in the past month for various ailments related to the cancer and treatment. He’s been put through the wringer!
So it is time for a pause to enjoy some semblance of a "normal" life again. We plan to have a nice rest from the constant hustle back and forth to the cancer institute and the long hours spent there. Mr. Jim will have a chance to get back his appetite and build some strength. We’re also going to have a little fun during our summer hiatus. (More about that in a later post.)
Another scan is scheduled toward the end of August. We’ll see where we stand at that point and proceed from there.
