First Anniversary of Chemo

Today is a replendent day in Beantown. The greens are glowing and the sky is pale cerulean. Cambridge, MA is a sister city of Florence (Firenze), the capital of Tuscany. Also, Coimbra Portugal.

In May, she told me I won't have to see her (and get more scans) for another six months. So I won't have the pleasure of her company until Nov. I'm scheduled for my 2nd stoma colonoscopy in August - almost one year to the day from my last one. Perhaps a one month delay would be nice - can't hurt (I hope).
