We all know we've been a little quiet on the blog lately. A major factor of this shortage of postings was due to the fact that the first round of chemo did do a number kicking my ass. I had my first chemo treatment on Tuesday, July 10th. The weekend of July 13 thru 15 was rough going.
Second round of chemo at Sloan was Tuesday, July 17th. This weekend is going much better. Just finished a tasty frittata, (compliments of Sarah). I'm doing my best to stay well-hydrated and keep my weight up.

So, I’ve heard about the whole hair loss factor of the chemo. (Doctors say to expect hair loss as a side effect.) Coincidentally, I haven’t had my haircut in almost a month. (Haven't gone this long without a haircut since my 6th grade grunge-era days.) When the time does come to loose the hair, luckily I've been stepping up my hat game (along with the help of my sister and her friend, Meghan) who are making sure I don’t miss a step.

And, check out the authentic cowboy hat, Tommy brought me from his recent trip to Sheridan,Wyoming.
In the puppy department, Mia seems to be settling in quite comfortably as you will see from the pics. Many thanks to Denise (and Lisa) for all the wonderful, puppy supplies from "Bone Appetite" in Watertown.
