Cold night .... we have a fire going and it is hockey time!
Sending you warm wishes and enjoy that quiet time Linda -thanks
I had blood work yesterday and saw oncologist to get the green light for chemo today. I also had a Port-a-cath inserted yesterday. Got carboplatin/caelyx today using the Port. Dare I even say “what a treat”?! It was getting so difficult to find a good vein so today was much easier. Three cheers for my husband Leo for driving me there and back through the winter storm that’s hitting Southern Ontario today. Home safe n sound now and planning a big rest. Swinging good wishes to all of you. Sending hugs, and hoping you all keep cozy too ! 🦋
Glad everything went well yesterday for you. Rest well. ❤️
Good to hear you are all set with the Port, beats being poked often.
The Winter season does seem long now... especially on the cold days... love the snow - hate the winds!
Time spent doing indoor projects when the mood strikes..
Sending good wishes to everyone; I've got some company stopping in so I'll pop back to the site again tomorrow.

thank you for your message @Flowergirl, and my regrets for not checking in lately. Having a bit of a roller coaster with my care (still). Too many details to try to explain, suffice that I am once again stabilizing (until the next treatment wrings me out again...). I think that this leads to a topic idea: when should/might treatment be jettisoned? I know these are discussions we have with our oncologists and families, but useful to share. Just waiting for the home care coordinator and the home care provider nurses to arrive for the first assessment visit, so will need to share my goals for this care with them.
I don’t know about yourselves but my cabin fever is at a peak, with this Ottawa winter. No place to walk there is so much snow. My husband has promised me a short visit to the National Gallery this morning once the nurses leave and Iam determined to hold up.
Have a grand week, hugs all around.
Great topic idea @djapj !
