Just Beachy

Not much to report on this lovely summer day.  I’m enjoying being home between chemo sessions.  Next session will start in about two weeks. 

On Wednesday night, I was invited to see Mission Impossible.  The movie was fun (if you see it, let me know if you agree that old Tom looks kind of funny when he is running after the bad guys) but it was even better just to be out with some friends on a balmy Southern California evening.  I’ve made a personal pact to do more “getting out”.  Today, I went down to the beach to attend the local surf festival.  The heat and all the walking around was a bit taxing, but I’m still glad I did it.
August 1 marked 3 months since I was diagnosed.  That’s 3 months of shuttling back and forth between hospital and home and being loaded up with the poison that will save my life.   This will probably not go down as the best year I’ve experienced.  But next year could be.
Hope you are enjoying your summer.
