It’s been almost 2 weeks since I did my last chemo treatment and I am just starting to feel the beginnings of okay.
I still have the neuropathy in my hands and feet, and I have a deep ache in my bones and I feel kind of nauseated most of the time.
That’s just kind of how it goes now. And hopefully it won’t be how it goes in a month or so.
Of course, it’s the growing of the new, fresh, vibrant hair that is my big focus right now. My hair is coming back, slowly but surely. Not enough that you can see it yet, but it’s a soft fluffy covering on my head. Maybe soon it will have some colour.

What else…
Today a friend gave me a great big bottle of Noni juice.
“What is Noni juice?”, I hear you ask…
well… have a look
or just throw the word noni juice and cancer into your favorite search engine.
It’s all kind of interesting and I will see if it makes me feel any better.
I admit, I have so many weird things in my body right now, it would be hard to figure what may be making me feel better. And since my test results were pretty much unbeatable last time, I don’t expect a few blasts of noni juice to improve those scores.
Still, I’ll take it and see if it helps.

And as many of you know, we have switched our diet to being as organic as possible. I believe that organic produce has a better taste than non-organic.
If you don’t believe me, go out and buy yourself an organic mandarin orange.
You really have to taste this. They are completely amazing and loaded with flavour.

On other fronts, I am stunned at how very little daylight we get here in Van-groover lately. It’s really shocking.
Add to that a lot of wind and a lot of rain, and it’s a tough time of year.
It’s funny because I was thinking today about an Australian friend who is in Ireland and an Irish friend who is in Australia and I thought they should enjoy things where they are.
Though I suppose Ireland probably isn’t getting anymore daylight than us here.

But the dark days are almost at an end.
That’s what I hear and that’s what I believe.
