First I want to thank all the commenters and readers for their kind thoughts. They must have worked, since I am feeling better than I have in six months. I am just about back to normal as far as flexibility (you have no idea how hard simply sitting up can be with dozens of staples in your abdomen). But I still have a bit to go in the strength department and get tired too easily. I even survived a car trip to southern California last Monday to meet with an oncologist from USC Norris Cancer Center. She was very encouraging, claiming that my cancer was not as dire as I previously had been told. She also said that I should have chemo and radiation in Las Vegas and stay close to home. Tomorrow I have an appointment with a local oncologist and should be starting chemo early in May. I will probably have chemo for six months (with a break at the end of August and the beginning of September to go to Australia). I will know a lot more after tomorrow's doctor's appointment. But on to stitching!
2010 Goals -- oh, my, I was rather ambitious. I doubt I will get half of these projects finished, but I hope to start up again on one or two UFOs. I really want to get a few UFOs finished before starting on a new project. Some of these UFOs are so old that I am sure they will feel like a new project.
