I bet you wonder what has happened to us? Remember the old adage, "no news is good news." For me, I simply don't feel compelled to blog when things are going good. I mean, "carpe diem!" I just want to spend all the precious time I can with Sabine.
After a good six months (most of the summer) without chemotherapy we knew it was coming. The cancer "numbers" had been creeping up so it wasn't a big surprise when Dr Sheehan put Sabine back on a chemo regimen a couple of weeks ago.
The treatment now is what I call a "shotgun" approach -- a little bit of Velcade (subcute 2x/wk) with oral Revlimid and dexamethasone. Sabine is a little tired but I wouldn't know. She is out exercising on our hills and in the pool (we have really had some HOT weather -- so much for living up north!).
This weekend we are going to do another bike and paddle excursion on the Bark River near Ft. Atkinson.
We are both looking forward to another Couper Get-Together on the outerbanks of the North Carolina seashore in August. Whoopee!
We have lost a couple of friends from our cancer support group. That always is a wake-up call for me. I grab my spear. I mount the ramparts and watch out for danger...
