This most recent type of chemo leaves me feeling tired but not nearly as nauseous or wiped out as the last medicine did. Though I feel better, I still have to be aware that my immunity is down. I have to be careful not to catch something that will get me too feeling bad.
In the afternoon, I was able to get out in the sunshine and walk around on a sunny spring day.
Though I’m away from school, I still get all the emails and reports to keep up.
Our high school students who participate in Chamberlain’s Native American Club are off to Denver this weekend for their big annual powwow.
The students who spoke at our donor luncheon in New Orleans had a most memorable time, including getting mud splashed on them by a big gator on their boat ride through the bayou.
March is also the time we mail to many new people, hoping they will be interested in being part of our St. Joseph’s family. We’ve had encouraging results that are keeping the office staff busy so far.
And, congratulations to John Beheler, a former student and staff member who last year moved on to take a principal’s job in Lower Brule. One of our accrediting agencies, CORE (Coalition of Residential Educators) just named him Alumnus of the Year for his work.
Since I like basketball, March Madness gives me an excuse to slow down and relax! I enjoy when the underdogs pull and upset, but I got more than I bargained for when the first upset was Notre Dame, my hometown team!!
