Times are changing and flying by fast. Life has not allowed for traditional cards this year, but I think of you all and wanted to send a holiday message, this year on the computer. My computer has been my regular companion even more so through this past year. It has allowed me to keep in touch with everyone easily. First, thank you so much for all of your emails, notes, thoughts and well wishes this past year. They have been very encouraging and meaningful. Life is going on as normal as possible considering all the new things that have become a part of our lives. The boys have adjusted well and are in very good spirits. While school is in, they have not come to treatments with me, but do on occasion. They are not fearful, but rather bring smiles to the hospital staff and other patients. They are very positive and have really "stepped up" this year. We are very proud of them in all they do.
I continue with my treatments and it has become my "job" as it consumes much of my life now. I am gaining strength and some energy back and I have been handling my treatments fairly well. We have a great support system which remains steadfast. We are fortunate. Bob has been able to find extreme latitude and support from work and at this point is returning to some travels as his job demands. We are remaining positive and looking forward to a new year of life and health. It's all about attitude! Here's to you and yours! May next year be a GOOD one!
