Yesterday was the first day of spring, and Seattle is in full bloom. Another significant event that was marked today, is that it has been two weeks since Roanne's last chemo treatment so today was the first day that she would have had to go in for a treatment but was able to skip it because she is finished! We are super excited about this, Roanne is sleeping well now and starting to feel better and better each day, just like the plants and flowers starting to bloom and looking forward to the sunny days of the summer. We celebrated the end of her chemo today by going on a long walk and having a delicious dinner at an Italian restaurant called Spinasse that we had never been to before. It was a great restaurant, small and busy with amazing food. Bene!
We are both looking forward to some good adventures in the weeks and months ahead to make up for all the time lost to chemo. I, for one, am trying to convince Roanne that we should go on a bike touring adventure to Port Townsend this weekend. She seems to be putting up some resistance (supported by half-baked claims of "no fitness due to 4 months of sitting on the couch full of chemo drugs"), so if you see her then tell her that she should definitely embrace this opportunity I am presenting her with. For all of those who don't live nearby and miss Roanne's sunny smile, her is a short video of her to remind you.
