How time flies! WordPress told me that it’s been four years since I started this blog. It was my post “50 Days and Counting” till my first month long visit to Venice, aka The City of My Dreams. According to Delta Airlines I have 151 days till take off for my next visit.
A lot has happened since then, my retirement from my employment with the Department of Social and Health Services after 24 years. It’s hard to believe I’ve been retired for nearly three years. And if you’ve been following along you know that 2016 has not been my best year. Although chemo ended August 29 I’m still dealing with the chemo induced peripheral neuropathy that so far hasn’t shown much improvement. I know it takes a long time but I’m impatient to get my life back.
This coming Monday my radiation treatment begins. Five days a week for 28 treatments. We are praying that this knocks out the cancer completely.
I’ll be seeing some old friends in Venice and hopefully making a few new ones.
Here’s hoping the gondoliers won’t have to be so bundled up in March.
Diavolo is doing just fine and is asking for dinner so I have to stop for now. I’ll be checking back with all of you soon…but just not weekly updates like I was doing. And of course when the neuropathy lets up my camera and I will be back to exploring the local area.
