Update on Christmas and more

We were able to travel to the coast to see our children and grandchildren and that was a real treat. Unfortunately I did not get nearly enough time to spend with the family as I had chemotherapy the day before we left, and much of the week I spent in bed sleeping off the exhaustion. I thought it would be easier to handle, but being bed ridden at home is not the same as out like a light at my daughter’s house. I felt sad that I missed so much, yet really blessed to be with family during the time that I was awake.

Lately, I have been recouping at home as I came down with pink eye the day before we left to come home. My daughter Misty took really good care of me as it was nearly impossible to find a clinic open or one that would allow me to come in. They were filled with sick patients, which is a huge problem for a chemo patient with a compromised immune system. Misty contacted her doctor and he was able to get me the medicine I needed. I still feel tired, but I am slowly getting better. I just have to get rid of the pink eye so I can have my last chemo session next week Thursday. They won’t treat me if I am still infected.

Below is a picture of my daughter Misty who was a tremendous host and fantastic turkey soup maker!

Merry Christmas from On the Path blog by Cheryl Schatz

Thank you!

Thank you to all of my family and friends who have been following my blog and my progress through the rocky road of cancer treatments. You have made me feel cared for and that my life still has value and importance.

My wish for you

I wish all of you a joyous Christmas season and may the peaceful spirit of this Advent Season rest upon your home.

I have Christmas “off” so I can enjoy some quiet time with my husband. My next chemo is December 27th. After that I look forward to spending some time with my children and grandkids.
