We are just a couple of days away from our wonderful "April in Paris" trip with Holiday Vacations. 30 viewers will be traveling with us! These trips are always so lovely, we have friends who have come 2 and 3 times because they like the value and the pace. I'll let you know if there is another destination in the near future!
Things will be busy for me when we return too. Twelve hours after we land, I report to Millard Fillmore Suburban for a medi-port implant. That will allow my chemotherapy to be administered directly without additional I.V.'s. From there I head to my doctor's office for my first dose. Waiting for me there will be photojournalist Ed Reilly or our Chief Photographer Scott McDowell. We've decided to shoot that experience so everyone will know what it's like. So many people have been through this already, and unfortunately, many more will come after me. But it is an important part of treatment that prevents cancer from coming back. It is so heartwarming to hear from 10, 20 and 30 year survivors! I've kept all your cards and keep them in a special place!
So after chemo, I should be back on the sofa at AM Buffalo on Monday, April 18th. Thank goodness for Jon Summers who so ably fills in AND is out everyday shooting all the stories that appear on the show.
Wish me luck blogging from France..sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't ! Au revoir!
