My garden is once again filled with roses! Wish you could smell these in the pitcher on my window ... a combination of David Austin's Winchester Cathedral and Abraham Darby. Heavenly!
And that is what I'm doing ... taking time to smell the roses. I met with my new oncologist yesterday and all my fears of not liking him, or what he has to say, have vanished. He's very nice and I think we'll get along just fine. Basically, we're going to watch and wait. I'll be monitored monthly but won't need to resume treatment until something changes. He's unable to determine whether this is part of the original disease or a recurrence because there were no scans/CA125 done until after first line treatment ended. So he's going to treat this as a recurrence. As long as the cancer remains stable, I won't need to go back for more chemo. It could be 1 month, 1 year ... or who knows???? ... as long as I'm feeling well (which I am!) and there's no progression of the disease, I'm good.
I'm taking a blogging break for a couple of weeks as we have relatives coming to visit at the end of the week. I can't wait and am really looking forward to our time together!
Something else that has me excited this week ... this course popped up in my email today! I'm signing up! I love the holidays and decorating and can't wait for this one to start!
Enjoy these last days of August! I'm not quite ready to say good-bye to Summer but I have to confess that I find my thoughts turning to Fall every so often. See you soon!
