This round was worse than last summer's round on my back but they got all the spots on my right leg and this kind of cancer stays gone if it is caught early.
In a few short days I have can milk and cheese. Oh how I missed my skim milk and cheddar cheese!

It's kind of puffy and painful now (my body AND my resistance to pain are going down the drain with time - I used to be able to sit 8 hour sessions and not budge, AND have no swelling, yesterday 1 3/4 hours and I wanted to kick the tattoo artist in the face) BUT I'm soooooooo happy about it.
Also, both my foot and I survived our 11-hour shift today. I did not even collapse on the couch when I got home!
Lastly, I love my dogs.

I can sympathize with you about the nausea, I would rather be in extreme pain than deal with nausea. I've spent a good deal of time plastered on the cold tile floor in front of the toilet so I won't have to go far. Birdie dragged her blanket into the bathroom and slept in the tub.
BTW - I found that pure peppermint tea with the tiniest touch of honey or stevia and old fashioned horehound candy really worked at keeping the nausea at a dull roar so I didn't have to take as much of the nasty medications up until the last few weeks.

Driving on the left side of the road, on roads that are barely two lanes wide, with NASTY pot holes makes travel quite difficult. I hit three or four very deep pot holes going about sixty and worried that I was going to end up with a flat. After a few hours of driving, we were headed back to the hotel, and the van behind me was driving very close and flashing his lights. Every time I looked in the rear view mirror, he jestured to pull over. It was freaking me out. I finally found a spot and pulled to the side. He did as well. And then he got out of his car.
I was pretty freaked out... then he walked up to Demo's side of the car and reached to open the door!! AAAHHHHHH!!!! As the door opened, he handed him the hubcap that had fallen off of the passenger side front tire about 5 miles earlier. He said "I'm sorry, you were probably wondering who was driving like a crazy person behind you, but you lost this back at the quarry." We thanked him profusely, and he got back in his car and headed back the other way - probably to town, which was about a mile back.
So, this total stranger saw us lose a hubcap, and not only stopped and got out of his van to get it, but followed us into town, and then towards our hotel to give it back to us. I have to admit I was floored.
