July 30, 2000 - Feeling Terrific
First of all, apologies for the mailing list header in the last email I sent out - I was in too much of a hurry to get the information to you and forgot the "To" and "BCC" rules!
Thank you so much for all of your encouragement and prayers and good thoughts and cards and notes and email over the last eight months. You have made this journey much easier to travel!
Friday I saw my oncologist for my one month checkup (usually you see the doctor at one month intervals for a while, then three month intervals, then six, etc.). Everything was great! In fact, it was so great that I don't have to go back for three months! Complete recovery seems to be well on the way!
I've been feeling terrific, regaining energy every day. I'm back on my exercise program, back to a "normal" routine. My hair is growing back slowly - seems straight at the sideburns and nape, somewhat "fuzzy" on top. The color is dark and "antique" blonde. I take Tamoxifen daily (and will be for the next five years) and have had no side effects from that medication. A "normal" night's sleep is still a bit difficult, but getting easier. All in all, things are wonderful!
Friday I leave for the National Speakers Association convention - I will be so glad to give and collect hugs from many of you!
Please stay in touch - you've become very special to me!
Blessings and hugs!
