Today Carole goes in for her first of 16 chemotherapy sessions. Her sister, Betty, has come up to visit and will accompany her to the treatment. I don’t know how quickly the side-effects of such treatment appear, but it is one of those things that has to be done no matter what the side-effects if one is to conquer the disease, so Carole is approaching it eagerly and with optimism. We’ve both wondered whether her legendary appetite will suffer as is common with chemotherapy. If anyone’s can, her’s will, I’m sure.
