I've been a little scarce in these parts lately and, when I have been here, I've had to bite my tongue. Thank god for a week in Brazil and photos to blog because there hasn't been too very much of anything else worth writing about.
Someone nearest and dearest to me has been undergoing treatment for cancer since the end of last year... literally, the first chemo treatment was on New Year's Eve. So far, 2013 has been all about that -- except for that week in Brazil, which I couldn't change and OMG what a boost that turned out to be, so I'm glad I went.
Chemo and radiation have been going along pretty much as expected until a bump in the road a little over a week ago. There were a few little things to deal with, another bump or two, kinda-sorta scary, treatment was delayed a bit... but now, we're so very very VERY close to the end.
Today was the second-to-last treatment and, if all goes well (blood tests, meetings with docs) tomorrow SHOULD BE THE LAST!! Please, my peeps, cross your fingers and toes -- I'm even going to cross my eyes a few times tomorrow, mainly because it makes me smile and remember to muster and heap on the extra mojo!
I hope and pray that everything goes smoothly tomorrow so the process of healing can begin.
