It is already July, and the lilies are blooming!
I had hoped to enjoy some chemo-free months this summer, but it seems that is not to be. My disease is progressing quickly again, so I will be starting the second line of palliative chemotherapy (doxorubicin and olaratumab) as soon as possible. This drug (olaratumab) has only recently received conditional approval in Canada and isn’t actually available yet except on compassionate grounds. Just waiting for the paperwork to go through!
Much more interestingly, I’ve also been working on a list of excellent books for you to read. It will be posted soon, with updates added as I catch up on my summer death reading!
And one of these days I hope to get around to posting more of my own writing on all sorts of topics! I have a large folder full of drafts waiting to be finalised. But the call of my wild garden has been irresistible, and I’ve had so much fun wandering the paths that Roy has cut for me and taking photos of my flowers and other wonders growing in this gorgeous season of warmth and sun and rain.
I hope you have been well and at peace and enjoying every moment that you can get close to nature this summer!
