      Sounds like a nice morning, I have relatives with a home on Lake Erie up by Cedar Point. It's always nice to visit there and see the lake. That's a BIG lake. Coming from TN where our biggest lake is KY Lake, that is more like an ocean.

      Hi tombo, I'm glad that you are feeling well. :) We all appreciate any # of days when we feel "good". I feel ya when it comes to the 3 days after chemo. Day #3 and #4 and that first week after chemo is the hardest for me to get through, but I do and then things get better. Please don't ever feel like you can't express yourself....true we are here to inspire each other but also to vent and get support from others who understand. It's not "complaining" here....to us it's a road we've traveled too, so feel free to open up. Sending you tons of hugs and know we're all here for you. :) Keep smiling! :)
