Spring is here at last

I am feeling a lot better than the last time around. It is probably psychological as much as anything since I know I don't have to go back. I am medicating myself better and reading a lot to divert myself until the rest to the chemicals work their way out of me. 
I am excited about doing healthly things, and getting some garden planted. My peas are finally up. I hopefully can start yoga and swimming in a day or two. The flowers popped overnight and all the signs of spring on 70 degree afternoon make life bright.
My friend Sue came over with flowers and a clothes swap and buzzed my head for me, so I will have a fresh start for my hair to grown back. It has been weird having nothing done to my hair for 4 months.
I get a cat scan in May as a baseline to see how much (or little)  tumor is left in my lung and liver. In the meantime, my plan is to enjoy life, feel normal and not think too much about the future. Let the holiday from chemo begin!
