They did not, however, know or think to mention the pain that would set in just after the chemotherapy ended and which continues in a much lesser form today.

Over two French doors in my kitchen hangs a sign that reads, "Good wine, good friends, good times." That couldn't have described the scene around my table more on the cool and rainy Tuesday night we had earlier this week.
