Difficult News

I have mixed feelings in reporting that my medical team has decided to terminate chemo only half way through (the difficult half) as the risks of organ failure and even death are stronger than the possible benefits at this point. Perhaps over time, as I recoup my strength and sleep (I still have chemo in me) I will be able to  restart. Within the last week I have had several "experts" suggest that I get my final affairs in order, including who will will look after the children, and that certainly does not make me confident (to say the least). I still have radiation ahead of me, and I am aware that I have to draw my strength from within, though today it is difficult.

Here is a lovely photo from our last venture out, the day I was released from hospital with pneumonia. I don't think I have recovered yet.
