On Sunday we had our traditional Christmas Eve Dinner with our daughters, their hubbies, and the grandchildren. This dinner is not as formal as in past years, with the little ones and all. But all in all it was a nice evening and they each opened one gift to keep occupied so we could relax and visit after dinner.
And Christmas was the usual fun gift exchange extravaganza. It is so nice when both girls can stay over and be here for Christmas morning. The trailer helps to make that possible. We know this won't go one many more years as the "kids" will want to be in their own homes at some point; but for now, we are loving it.
So now we are rolling on towards a New Year, 2018, in just a couple of days. And we are looking forward to putting 2017 behind us. The last few months have been pretty stressful from the fire and bronchitis. But generally I've had a pretty good year. I am still on my daily chemo pill every other week, and while there are some side effects, I am tolerating the Xeloda pill fairly well. My oncologist recommended I take a full week break, and I am doing so right now. Hopefully my hands and feet will recuperate a bit during this down-time. I'll start the new year off with an oncology visit and CT Scan mid-January.
May there be peace and equality for all.
