The drive to the oncology center was an eye-opener. I had not been past the Journey’s End trailer park yet to see that devastation nor the devastation of the Round Barn Inn and Holiday Inn right next to the oncology center. All so very sad. We did not drive over Fountaingrove so that will be a trip for another time.
My weight is up a bit, and that has me a bit miffed, especially with the holidays upon us. We talked about altering my Xeloda chemo pills & maybe taking a week off around the holidays to give my body a break and make it a little easier on my hands and feet, and see if some shoulder pain goes away, although that is not a normal side effect of this drug, so is probably unrelated. I'm going to start seeing Dr. Anderson every six weeks & doing scans every three months. This is a bit sooner than before (exam every 2 months, and scans 4 months), but will keep a better look at things since I am way over the usual time when this drug no longer becomes effective, or the patient can no longer tolerate it; which is usually less than a year. I am now going on 15 month. Hopefully things will continue this way.
So things are going very well for now. We are refreshing the living room a bit with fresh paint and carpets, and I am working on some Christmas crafts for the grand kids. Look who helped me create these beautiful holiday decorations from the nature surrounding us on beautiful Sonoma Mountain.

And dinner out at Goji Kitchen in Santa Rosa on our way home was delicious. This was our second time there and we will be back.
