Slept past my usual time this morning. That made for a semi-rushed getting ready for today's chemo.

I took my 7 pills and then went up to get my foot ready to stay dry during the shower. The plastic wrap variation is a lot better than the bag around the foot.

At 7:55 it was time for Peter to drive Eric to school and then drive me to the hospital. After dropping Eric off at school it was time to be stuck in the morning traffic. Does not make me in a good mood. It took over 40 minutes to get there. I wanted to do chemo by myself today so I could sleep and just listen to music. It also gave Peter the opportunity to do some more clearing out of closets and cabinets in anticipation of the movers.
I had a last minute appointment for a medical pedicure. (nothing at all like a pedicure in the USA). Because of the risk for infection, I didn't dare cut my own nails. We all know what happened the last time I did that. Lena was great to talk with and she was careful with my toes and made sure they were cut the right way. She even put a new bandage on my toe. I did glance at it a few times. She and all the others that have looked at it always say it looks good. so, that is a relief. I was done with my pedicure in time for my 10 am chemo appointment.

On the way out of the hospital, I went past Lena's office and knocked on the door. "Cookie delivery". The happy expression on her face was worth it!! I really do like making others happy.
Home again and I ate a pizza and then tried to rest for two hours but I wasn't tired enough. So, I chatted with a few friends and just tried to sleep. Then it was time for dinner. Peter made our favorite meal and then I watched a little tv before writing today's blog post.
Playing the Pharell Williams "Happy Song" on Spotify. Having it on repeat makes my feet start tapping. A good beat.
I am so disconnected to the preparing for the move. The movers come in the morning. I am not stressed about it. I probably will be tomorrow morning, but now I am going to go to sleep and let the chemo drugs do their thing.
Thanks to all that send me messages in all the different ways through out the day. I was too tired to respond to all of them today but they really warm my heart. THANKS.
