Day 13 - 2nd Chemo Cycle "Valentine's Day"

It was so nice to have my best day so far this cycle land on Valentine's Day.  My digestive system turned around and was "normal" today.  I notice this is just one day after having my chiropractic adjustment.  Perhaps the chiropractor may be another aid to help me with side effects during the rest of my chemo treatments.  I'm going to try that and we'll see what happens.  As I've said before this is all a work in progress and I'm still learning how to handle all of it.  I'm needing to wear my touque most of the time now to keep my head warm.  In an effort to make it look nice, I made a contrasting band around the outside edge of the hat with a scarf that just happens to match the blue colour tones.  It helped me feel a little more attractive and not so "frumpy".

Anyway, I was able to enjoy a very nice dinner at home with my family.  I even had a glass of wine with my dinner and then ended with a cup of coffee and some dessert .... well maybe 2 desserts.  I ended with a red velvet cupcake topped with cream cheese icing which a friend had dropped off for us and later I had a small piece of baklava which Scott made on Sunday.  It was really really good!!!  I'm so happy I was able to eat and still feel great!

So all in all this has been a great day!  Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends and family!!
