It’s hard to believe that 10 days have flown by so quickly. Seems like I just left! It was an incredible time, highlighted by Carly and her teammates winning the Bronze medal for the team event. In the individual events, Carly just missed Bronze on the balance beam by .20 I am so proud of her.
I had 10 amazing days in Israel with family and friends. I felt great, didn’t take 1 single pill while I was there!! I had lots of energy to do everything I wanted to do. I didn’t let anything bother me, and just enjoyed every moment.
My cousin and my brother were in charge of posting pictures on Facebook, and they were having a contest to see who would get more likes! It was pretty funny. I didn’t have a smart phone with me, so I was relying on them! so hopefully you were all able to see the pictures. In case you are not connected with me on Facebook, here is the link to my personal page https://www.facebook.com/randy.s.mellon and here is the link to my Think Pink Direct Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Think-Pink-Direct/197255126951618
I came home last night and Carly comes home tomorrow, and Richard and Hailey on Thursday. Then the reality part begins. Back at the hospital for blood work and meet with my Oncologist on Thursday, and chemo #5 on Friday. I’m hoping without all the emotional stuff, and the surgery for the port all dealt with, that this round I will only have to deal with fatigue! Now, as my grandmother would say, phew phew phew, and I am throwing salt over my shoulder, so as not to bring any bad thing! You have to love old country traditions 🙂
As always….taking it a day at a time!
