Happy new year! I am feeling great about 2019, but I can’t deny that my appearance has changed. My own phone doesn’t recognize me. Every time I pass a mirror, I wonder what Sinead O’Connor is doing in my house.
Chemo day will be on Friday for a while, and I’m still limping around from a double dose. I had to invoke a wheelchair for the first time last week – very tough on my pride, which although it wenteth before a fall, is plotting a full comeback.
This past year has been, to put it mildly, a challenge. But I have so much gratitude for its blessings as well, particularly for —
- The redhead
- My mom, still going strong at 85
- The wealth of love and support from you, my wonderful friends
My official theme song for 2019 is “Staying Alive.” Cue the Bee Gees, and let’s get this party started.
