The doctor's appointment yesterday showed relatively good blood results - well within normal range for chemo patients. My next chemo treatment remains scheduled for January 8. The most uncomfortable side effect so far has been my sore mouth. Since I haven't had the common side effects, I had to develop one of the less common ones. It's a little difficult to eat, but the oncologist said that should be getting better, not worse, until my next treatment. I have found some ways to minimize the discomfort.

Jon's family arrived safely and we're having a good time. The boys had the time of their life last night wrestling with Uncle Ben and Uncle Josh. At the moment, the house is quiet because Grandpa decided I needed a nap and took everyone on a walk.

More updates later ... I'm going to go take my nap.

Hope the next treatment isn't any worse than this past one was. At least your on a countdown... 1 down, means one more you are done with!!! Will continue to pray for you :) Love you.

I'm so thankful you haven't had the really bad side effects. However, I know how annoying a sore mouth can be. Whenever I visit the dentist I usually cannot eat much for a long time afterward. Hope it feels better soon and that whatever you're doing helps! Still praying for you! Love you!
