Terminus Update

3 Comments

After six months of chemotherapy it was time for new scans. Has the cancer spread? Has it been reduced in size and spread. We had a bone scan and a CT scan.

The results were revealed this week. Terminus has not spread. It has actually diminished a bit. The lymph nodes are cancer free. There is no cancer in the bones. Things aren’t a lot better and not worse. Basically good news.

So cold.

I don’t thrive in the cold. I’ve been cold so long. The house where I stay isn’t kept very warm. It’s a coat on inside kind of place.

It’s been a while since my last blog. After Christmas I had another chemo treatment. That’s had me weak, tired and sick. It’s not easy to create when I feel bad. Feeling kinda bad today. sigh

The red room bedroom. lol I spend way too much time in this room.

Living in the room that mind built. I am thoughts. I am not thoughts. What am I? Am I an idea?

It was an excellent 8 years but I need to sell my rv. I’m not going back there and it’s going to waste. Someone could be enjoying it.

We went down to the river to play. There was a lot of graffiti on the old, abandoned bridge.

Here I am taking a photo.

This is one view of the Little Cahaba River from the bridge.

I visited the Oncologist. She said I was doing well. My blood work looked good. I have chemo every 3 weeks. The chemo is really hard on me. I’m weak and sick for days afterwards.

I like a little Ganisha with me when I go to chemo.
