Starting to feel it.

So yesterday, after treatment, I noticed I was very tired. Today, same thing. I think maybe the fatigue is starting. However, no hairloss yet (at least not from radiation, lol).  Oh well, I’m sure thankful for first while of no side effects.

Each day, I travel to and from my appointments with a volunteer driver through the Canadian Cancer Society Volunteer Driver Program. What a wonderful program.  Interestingly, the first day, the driver and I were just chatting and it turns out he is married to my mom’s first cousin. Small world. They pick me up, wait during my treatment and then drive me home again. I can’t imagine doing this without that program. Sure will change my answer the next time they call about a donation. :mrgreen: Also, today the driver gave me an electric blanket that Sunbeam Canada had donated for patients. Very nice program.

The boys are doing alright with the adjustment to city life. There’s a nice big park just down the street from our rented house. They’ve been swimming at the Rec. Centre a couple of times now. And they’ve even gotten a trip to the Lego Store, which is a big highlight for them. Overall,  life is going fine.

Thanks again to those of you who are praying for us. It is certainly felt.
