It's hard not to think about cancer, especially with the experience so recent and the effects of treatment invading our lives every day. It's not something we can just forget, or not worry about. Seems to me that I am still in active treatment (though not as traumatic as chemo and surgery), taking Femara, getting Zometa infusions, and all the SE's that go with that. Then the doctors' visits... Thank goodness we have each other to talk to, people who understand.
I'm still working on knitting. I've finished two sweaters, though I have to say they're not great. My latest new undertaking is learning how to draw and to use watercolors. I'm really enjoying that.
Our weather here in southern California continues to be nice, with occasional rain showers but mostly sunny. I, too, get into the sun when I can. It somehow makes the achiness melt away. I really appreciate the simple life, now. Seems like my perspective on many things has changed greatly.
My hot flashes are the same as ever. It's been 15 years or so that I've had them, so I don't hold out much hope of them ever going away. I just sleep more to make up for it waking me up so much.
Well, your hair is back. Good news! I remember well how good it felt not wearing hats, wigs, scarves, or anything like that. I especially remember how different it felt to have waves and curls, a first for me, while they lasted.
How was your cat when you got back? Did he miss you? My cats are all getting older, like me, and their presence is comforting.
I hope you will write when you can. I think about all of you often. Even though I try to stay off the boards, seems like there is this magnet that draws me back.
Big hugs to each of you, G.
