I’ve definitely noticed that when I go out riding or walking. I’m finding the bike path behind our place particularly beautiful these days. Today, rather than riding (it was… Read More »
Today was mostly a quiet day, with a great visit from a friend, and a quick trip up to Stanford for an EKG (baseline prior to chemo). Since I arrived early, they seem to have a habit of telling me my appointments are 20-30 minutes before they actually schedule the appointment, I took the extra… Read More »
