Marcie had to remind me

"Do you know what you don't have to do today?", Marcie asked this afternoon.
I was stumped.
"You don't have to take chemo pills tonight."
She, as always, was right.
For almost two years, every fourth week, I had to begin a five day regimen of Temodar pills.
The goal was to stomp the remaining cancer cells. I am now done with the pills after 24 cycles. The docs say no one goes any further because of possible collateral damage to the bone marrow which creates white blood cells.
Bye-bye little pink and blue capsules.


  1. Must be both a relief and scary - I think we become reliant on them to cure us and now that the body has to do all the work it becomes daunting... Enjoy the break! You deserve it.
    God bless

  2. Yay for no more little pink and blue capsules!

  3. Deirdre, thanks. We will be in your part of the world in December. Marcie and I are taking a celebratory trip to Namibia.

    Thanks Susan, the girls are ready for you to teach them to climb.
