Sigh of Relief

     Things are so much better! Blood counts are way up. Feet and hands, less purple, less painful. She cooked a meal on Thursday. Yes, Maura's famous vegetarian chili accomplished so much more than just satisfy our hunger--it cheered our hearts and comforted our souls. Oh, and we went to a movie last night. That, too, was wonderful.  Right now, every activity, every smile, every moment gives us so much joy. I hope that even after she is cured, that this heightened sense of appreciation for life stays with us all forever.  
     We still don't know when the central line will be reinserted or when the next chemo cycle begins. Should be sometime next week.  Maura is basking in the freedom from tubes and toxic drugs.
