May 2, 2000 - Living Life
What a great birthday weekend we had! We went to Denver for the Amazing Grace @ Work conference - it was truly inspiring. So wonderful to see friends and meet new ones - many of whom have been praying for me. God's Grace is indeed Amazing.
I continue to do well. I finished my third chemo treatment yesterday with no ill effects. I have a bit of a cold, and am a bit tired, but my spirits are high. I am so blessed to be going through this process so easily. I know that many others experience the other side effects which can occur.
I have mainly given up on wigs and hats unless my head is cold. Bald seems comfortable, so that is how I go! I am told that the next series of chemos which start in June will cause me to lose all my hair - including eyebrows and eyelashes. That will be an interesting challenge for makeup!
We will be heading up to NYC on May 16th to see our friends, Pam and Jack Burks, then on to Atlanta on May 18th for daughter, Jill's, wedding on the 20th. Then home for the 4th chemo treatment on the 22nd. My friend, Jean Palmer Heck, from Indiana will be coming down for that one - she is in the process of completing a tape series for doctors on communicating with cancer patients and is going to use me and some of my caretakers in the series. On the 25th-31st we will be going up to York for the Memorial Day weekend. I hope to see many of my York friends on that trip - have not been to the "North Home" for quite some time.
No speeches booked, but I am doing lots of talk radio which I enjoy tremendously. I've been on the air from Hawaii to Alaska to Massachusetts to Florida! Primarily I do my Communication piece - the ad that we use to get stations to call says, "Analyze Your Host on the Air!"
The rest of the time I rest and clean files and get organized. It's amazing how much stuff accumulates on a daily basis! Thanks for your many emails and cards. You are an inspiration and an encouragement to me with your faithfulness!
Hugs and blessings!
