No news is good news. I just realized how little I have posted about Cathy since near the end of her chemo treatment. Perhaps this is due to the fact that chemo wasn’t as hard as we anticipated!
With the end of chemo came a sigh of relief and a celebration of not having to go to the chemo floor at the MD Anderson Cancer Center again. Ironically though, it came with other unique challenges. Rather than all things coming to a nice peaceful end, this phase has generated more doctor’s appointments. They’re all good appointments…making sure Cathy is cancer free, healed, ready to go. But more appointments nonetheless. It’s also been a strange time of greater energy…thus thinking she can be very productive again…but realizing it’s not quite working like that. This phase requires a ‘new normal,’ and it’s taking a little time to learn what that is.
