Over halfway done! My silly “BattleTech Target” chemo treatment chart below has a dot for each Chemo Treatment and each removal of the “pump.” I did it like that so there would be more dots to fill in and make it look more interesting.

The constant fatigue, neuropathy, and bitter taste in my mouth is increasing slowly, despite some of the medications prescribed to mitigate the side-effects. Thank goodness this is happening during summer and not winter.

Other than these relatively minor nuisances, everything seems to be going along well enough. Last week I had Flash in my first ever Regatta - too bad the winds were terrible. The worst part of it was my fatigue kept me from trailering my boat, but the awesome members of the Wichita Falls Sailing Club took care of me in my time of need and trailered her for us.
