Topic: A lovely day

After a long, cold Chicago winter, today was sunny and pleasant.  My husband and I took a long walk at the arboretum, enjoying the weather and the early spring flowers.  When his cancer returned last fall, I wondered whether we would ever take a walk like this again.  His chemo was very hard on him but the doctor has made some changes in his regimen and he feels much better now.  The constant diarrhea is gone, his energy is better and he is even growing some hair.  He has a scan scheduled for next week and we have no idea what the future will bring. The only good thing I can think of about cancer is that it really does make one appreciate beautiful days like today.

Hi Linda,

I'm glad you and your hubby got to get out and enjoy the nice weather. It feels so good to have the warm sun on your face. I know what you mean when you say you learn to enjoy the little things in life when faced with cancer. So true. Hoping for more sunny days for you and your dear husband.

Love,

Linda and Pam, I couldn't agree more with your statements about cancer and how it teaches us to cherish those things in life we take for granted.  Enjoy the beginning of another, beautiful season.
