It's Friday! I'm ready for the weekend. Troy's still not feeling too well. I guess chemo has that effect on a person. We are both trying to keep a good attitude about it all and looking for the light at the end of the tunnel.
The PET Scan gave us the great results of NED (No Evidence of Disease). So we feel good about that. Now if we can just get through this chemo and Troy can start eating/digesting food better. He still has the effects of the rearrangement of his stomach and the removal of his esophagus to deal with on top of the chemo, so if he feels like eating (rarely) he will usually have the dumping syndrome and be sick for an hour or more. Still - he will tell you "life is good". We know that he is going through all of this so that the cancer will stay away.
We are looking forward to enjoying the weekend as best we can. We have our Small Group friends coming down tomorrow morning and if we are lucky we will get to go sailing on s/v Kallisto (Greg and Jean's boat). They are planning to sell her so this might be our last chance to take her out on the bay. Hopefully Troy will feel up to that, it always makes him feel better to get out on the water.
Call me Ishmael. Some years ago - never mind how long precisely - having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. ~H. Melville, Opening Line from Moby Dick
