(The following was originally posted on my Carepages blog for family and friends during my treatment.)

Went for my surgical recheck today. The tumor has shrunk considerably, so that is very, very good news. The difference is very visible. Shrunken like an old mushroom. This means all your prayers and love and thoughts are working so keep it up!!

I've been sleeping a lot the past few days. Did have some night sweats last night which made me a little restless, but nothing major. Been drinking Ginger Ale and Gatorade to keep my fluids up (plus lots of water too).

The sleeping weeks seem to go by slowly and I walk around in a kind of fog. But then the steroids kick in and I feel like I want to do everything. (But I don't. I've been warned to keep myself in check.) Doing something like changing the sheets is a major big deal. Stairs tire me out a lot too.

I've been fortunate that I've been able to do a little client work and to keep in touch with people.

Lots of people have sent butterfly images. (Thanks for that!) One friend drew me a Butterfly Cotillion image. It is perfect for what I imagined. Thank you Krash!!

That's about all I have to share for now. But it's all good. Two chemo treatments down, 6 to go.
