Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Things are going smoothly--our JuJu is a good girl

It's late Sunday afternoon, and Judy is lying back and enjoying her daily dose of antibiotics.

For her, it's been a lazy, lounge-about-the-house type of Sunday—just what the doctor ordered. I am so proud of her to truly kick back and not try to play the heroine. Saturday was a busy day in lots of ways, and today she felt a bit more tired and thus just napped and did nothing. I went for another long bike ride, with Emily's dad, Rod, and when I got home we napped together on the couch.

Her side "stitch" is still still bugging her a little, albeit much less than yesterday. She's been eating, drinking her protein and Cytomax, showering, and walking a little in front of the house—just a bit of everything. The bodily functions seem to have settled into their new rhythm, too.

So, overall this has been a great Sunday. The weather is glorious, and just looking outside makes one happy. We're looking forward to a week of rest and relaxation for Judy, gathering as much strength as possible for the next stage of the war.

Judy wants all of you to know that she continues to appreciate all of your thoughts and comments.
