Yesterday I had my three month check up with the oncologist. I don’t mind admitting that the past three months have been difficult ones for me as I do NOT wait well. The BIG question for the visit was whether the blood values had started behaving themselves or whether they either maintained or became worse, which means the watchful waiting … Read More
Update From the Hermit Hut
Normally, I talk about the picture at the bottom of my post, but as we head toward fall, I loved this particular image for a variety of reasons.
