Amelia, Congrats on finishing chemo!
Thanks, all for the great insight and tips!
Mimi, I can relate on having kids home for the summer. For me it's cook, clean-up, repeat with some entertainment thrown in there! Hang in there with the fitness. One step at a time, literally.
I completely agree that a combination of lifestyle plus good nutrition plus modern med can help us all in the long run. Someone on BCO once said (when talking about moving on after treatment) that she didn't want to look back decades later and realize that she lived in fear of mets, and keeping that in mind helps her to enjoy life. This is a paraphrase and I wish I could remember the source because it was a huge turning point for me in healing emotionally.
