Merry Christmas and happy New Year!

Hello People! How are you my friends? I hope and pray that this day finds you well, safe and happy. Today is Christmas! I am having a blissfully relaxed day with my Mo and our daughter. It is just wonderful. I got everything I wanted and more. The most important thing though is that we are together and doing fun seasonal things together as a family. I do miss my son, and hope he is having a wonderful celebration of our Lord as well. For me, this Christmas has been magical for me. We've made ginger bread cookies, and sugar cookies, gone yard decoration spotting, Christmas shopping and holiday movie watching. My favorites are Polar express and a Christmas story. It has been such an amazing season of Love. Please take a moment to share the beauty of your season with me. I would love to know what has been going on in YOUR world.

It is cycle 4 for me. It would probly not surprise you to know that the mail order pharmacy didn't get out my chemo to me in time for this cycle as well. LOL. It is irritating, but I have come to expect their consistent inconsistency in shipping my cycles to me when I need to start them. Fortunately My oncologist planned for this contingency and I have "backup" medicine. That allowed me to start this chemo at the time I was supposed to. Yay! I am doing very well. I do have the nasty hand and foot syndrome. It is rather bad on my feet. I have chunks of skin peeling off and it is quite red and itchy. My hands are red and itchy, but blessedly the skin isn't peeling off of them! None of that matters though, since I have been eating well, (sugar cookies, oh yea) sleeping well, and feeling much more energetic. The way I am feeling on the xeloda has been the most well and normal I have been in the past 2 and a half years. It is truly the best Christmas I have ever had. I love feeling well, though I wish I could feel well without taking chemo. I'm feeling blessed that I can take chemo and feel well. If that is what I need to do to be here on this earth, then chemo taking I will do! Feeling healthy is a great feeling. So, my wish for you all is that you are healthy. If you can't be fully healthy than I pray you can at the least "feel" healthy. This my friends, is my Christmas wish for You.

Merry Christmas,

Leslie
