chemo postponed

My blood work today showed an improvement in neutrophils - from .7 to 1 - since Monday, so I have been booked in for chemo next Wednesday. I didn't need to have an injection to boost my immunity as my body seems to be recovering on its own. I am a bit anxious to postpone the chemo for a week, but this will give me another week of feeling really good, so I'm not really complaining!

The house painting is progressing - outside and in, and as we finish one room, I will try to furnish it. It is amazing how empty the place is right now - it feels like a ballroom, but that won't last once we are living downstairs. The weather is still beastly here, and I am trying to keep all the little plants alive inside till I can transplant them outside. The wisteria is still beautiful, but the leaves are growing in quickly, so the best time for photos has already passed - the flowering crab apple is already losing its flowers, but lilac is in full bloom.

We had sad news from France today, that our beloved cousine Francoise has fallen into a gentle coma, from which she is not expected to awaken. Another cancer casualty, and our family feels broken.
