Its May, already??

Spent two weeks home from the hospital and managed to thoroughly enjoy myself. Between Easter Egg Hunts, visiting with friends and family, I had myself a good time. I also managed to make some new jewelry for my Etsy site plus connected with a store, Green Zebra, at the Crocker Galleria here in San Francisco. They now have some of my jewelry on consignment. Ya-HOO!!!

Tomorrow, I go back to the hospital for my final long term chemo treatment. After this visit, I have four short term visits lasting one week each. I'm feeling the same anxiety I usually experience the day before or the day of my hospital return. I'm nervous about getting the meds. This chemo therapy is the most powerful of all (I already went through this once) and has the most side effects. I suppose I'm better prepared for it this time. Whether I develop side effects this time will remain to be seen. I am preparing myself for whatever I'm faced with.

On a happier note, my sister Diane, brother-in-law J.D. and mom Helen came up last week to visit. Hubby Gary, myself and daughter Gaby took them to The Ramp at the end of Mariposa. The restaurant is built on an old pier. It overlooks a shipyard where you can see any large ship in need of upkeep being worked on. There are also some great views of the East Bay. We had a great lunch then lounged around in the sun enjoying the views and talking and laughing. A great time!
