Yes, it’s over! Final chemo was Monday August 29th. I begin radiation therapy, which I’m told has minimal side effects, on September 23. I’m still dealing with the peripheral neuropathy which hopefully will dissipate with time. In the meantime I’m still using L-Glutamine powder and acupuncture to try to alleviate some of it’s issues. Most of you will remember that this all began with a major deep vein thrombosis way back the end of January. So I’ve been “sick” for a very long time. I’m looking forward to getting my life back and planning more of my trip to Venice in March. I have the apartment booked. It’s this one on Giudecca in the Molino Stucky complex:
Of course my price is low because I’m going in the low season and staying a month but they still have very reasonable prices. I also have my ticket booked on Delta and, yes, under the advice of my nurses, I plunked out the money for “economy comfort” at least for the flight over…so I can sleep…if I’m not too excited.
I’ll just share with you some pictures of places I hope to visit on this trip or lovely bridges I have crossed or….just some of my favorite pics from previous trips. There will be many more in March.
It’s time for a return visit here.
I’ll bet Luigi can put his hand on whatever title you are looking for.
Maybe my favorite hardware store will have something I need.
I hope to make some new cat friends in my new neighborhood.
Not a daily treat but maybe once in a while.
Does Giudecca have it’s own vegetable boat? Or do I need to head over somewhere else? I’m sure one of you can tell me.
Maybe I’ll finally have a cappuccino at this cafe across from the Frari.
I’m hoping to do a little shopping here. I missed them last time as they were closed for the Christmas holidays when I tried to visit. I’ll start sooner this time. Yes, they are a coffee roaster.
This one is just for Luca…cats do eat pasta! Living proof at the Dingo sanctuary on the Lido. So let your poor Tuscan cat have some if he wants it. I’m sure he’s quite well fed but he should be able to taste some of those excellent meals (or so I’ve heard) that you prepare. Hope to see you in March.
And, of course, I’ll be wandering the calle searching for the perfect reflections and just the right light.
