Favor for a Cancer Patient and her Husband

Credits: emperornorton

The chemo treatment has been causing my wife to shed more than an expensive long-haired cat. She has finished her first round of chemotherapy and will begin radiation treatment in a couple of weeks. Though she is responding to treatment, she has to go through a month of daily rads and three more chemotherapy sessions.

I have headaches from the worry.

So if you could, do us a favor: post a link to a favorite photo of yours here on lomography. I, at least, need the change of scenery.

    @tequ @ihave2pillows @bloomchen @atria007 @tsingtao @littlekoala @volker-jp @bravopires @realrampage @kiri-girl @ohpleasedontgo @mensa @trw Thank you all for your sharing, prayers, and hope! Lynn got good news a couple of weeks ago -- her cancer number is back in the normal range. She is undergoing radiation beginning Monday. Five weeks of this, then a rest, and back to chemo. But if things continue to look good, she will forgo the extra year of chemo that the oncologist thought was due.

    Thanks to everyone who shared in this thread.. Lynn was declared cancer-free in September. She gets checked every six months. In the meantime, we have resolved not to worry until we receive news to the contrary. We went on a cruise to celebrate our twenty fifth anniversary and her recovery. Knock on wood.
