Getting settled in Colorado

Getting settled in Colorado hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be.  Finding a new oncologist wasn't as hard as I thought.  It was all the moving and unpacking that took it out of me.  You see, I expect myself to be able to do all the thing that I used to do.  But since cancer has taken over my life, I find that I fatigue faster and can accomplish less.  The problem with me really is that I don't want to let anyone down, so I try to do as much as I used to be able to do, and it is exhausting.  Anyway.... getting settled has been pretty good now that most of the unpacking is done.  I have found an oncologist and already have 2 treatments under my belt.  Starting chemo over after having almost a month off from it freaked my body out though.  I do really like the new oncologist.  I will call him Dr. R.  And he has a really professional staff of nurses.  The things he is telling me and the tweaks to my treatment have been very positive and encouraging.  My sweet hubby is also seeing Dr. R as a new leukemia patient.  Fortunately he is asymptomatic and isn't being treated right now.


Other than adjusting to the dry cold weather, I think I will be just fine here.  Isn't life just a series of adjustments anyway?
