I cannot remember a summer this beautiful in Holland. In one of my recent blogs I mentioned we were hoping for a pleasant summer, and while it is not yet over we have have certainly had our wish so far.
In my previous blog I discussed a treatment I received. Now two weeks ago. I have been very unwell from it. For the last week I’ve had a mouth full of ulcers. As of yesterday I am again able to eat somewhat painlessly. I’ve had serious problems with my bowels as well. In short, a miserable two weeks.
Today I was in the hospital for my check-up. My blood levels have taken a substantial hit from the chemo but I am starting to feel better again.
We have decided further treatment will not work. I want to recover as much as possible and enjoy the time alloted to me. I’ll take good painkillers but no further tinkering with my body.
Enjoy my loved ones.
The summer’s not yet over, and who knows – autumn might be beautiful.
