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.

So Far, So Good: Chemo #10 Benign So Far


Judy had a much easier time with her chemo yesterday than she did four or so weeks ago. Dr. Phillips apparently tweaked the meds enough so that the immediate nausea and general rotten feeling did not kick in. After chemo she went back to work, and in the evening we had a nice dinner on the porch with our friend Alan.

Tonight, 30 hours later, still no nausea--just a general feeling of being tired. But who wouldn't be in her shoes, even without chemo, eh?

Here's another Camp Eagle photo that our friend Kathy from the metroplex sent this morning.

If you didn't know: Judy's b'day is this Friday! Since we'll be traveling to OKC, we won't be close to a phone, but I'm sure she'll love e-mails or comments once we get to the Marriott!

Possibly better reading it than hearing us sing it... Hope you have a lovely birthday, and sunshine rather than rain.

Lots of love from all the Reinbolts xxxx

Belated greetings and Happy Birthday, Judy! And glad to hear that chemo #10 was ok. I am exhausted and lost weight in our recent move, but thinking of you puts all that in perspective. I wish I had your strength and your friendship network. What a character you are! We miss you.
