DAY 46 - Another Day in Paradise

Wow...Have been in the south 40 of Paradise the past few days...not the most fun. The Chemo effects have kicked in and I have felt pretty lousy. Taking lots of "Don't you dare throw up -pills" and so far the pills are winning. Drove myself to radiation on Friday and spent the bulk of the day on Saturday in bed. Lise and I did a bit of shopping and loaded up on salmon and Ensure. Interesting meal selection.

Bad sleeping last night - lots of mucus and got up 10+ times during the night. Was glad to see the sun come up. I received more cards and some emails from friends and family....very nice - it means a lot. It is almost tougher being on the outside without knowing what you can do for someone else. I get regular good advice from new acquaintances from the Tonsil Cancer blog -Al & Nancy from Texas. Al is further down the line on this thing and it is good to see that the tunnel plays out. He acquired a new meat smoker - probably as a gift to himself for all the milkshakes he had to endure..ha.

Will try to mow the lawn this a.m. before it gets too hot. Has been in the 100's - but supposed to be down into the 90's this week. Don't want to get too far behind on the blog ...may post more on this later.

Got a good email from my sister with a suggestion for the song of the day - great one - thanks Sharon I love you.

Song of the Day: Van Morrison - Dweller on the Threshold
