My wife is going for her fourth and final chemo treatment next Thursday - and after that radiation starts.  She's been tolerating things as well as could be expected.

Let me say this to those that may be fighting cancer now - some food for thought. When she first got diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago (right at the start of the corona fiasco) - I thought what a horrible time to get diagnosed with cancer with this new virus floating around and the lockdown and all. But now that it has been several months, I actually think it was a big blessing in disguise for the two things to coincide -- to be diagnosed right when corona hit.

First, you were going to be forced to sit at home anyway - so it's not like she's losing out on doing things - corona shutdown everything anyway.

Second, when she had to schedule her operation, all elective surgeries were not allowed at the time - so we actually think she got in for her lumpectomy FASTER because of corona because any elective surgeries scheduled ahead of her was canceled. She got the operation I think within 2 weeks of the diagnosis - which seems fast. The hospital was sparse with not a lot of unessential people around and they were extremely careful with controlling any outbreak of the virus - so that helped her, too, to avoid complications from infections from the operation and being in the hospital.

And third (most importantly) - it is as if the entire world is protecting themselves from spreading germs just so my wife doesn't get sick :) I mean, what is better for a person with a compromised immune system (aka chemo patients) than for the entire world to shutdown, social distance themselves, and wear masks, and hospitals and doctors offices not letting anyone in except essential people and patients - keeping everyone else out. That helps protect not only from getting corona but from every other germ and virus.

So, not that I wish she got cancer, but if she was going to get it - now seems to be the ideal time to get that treated and taken care of!

So - gotta see the silver lining! God might be working in mysterious ways ;) And thanks to everyone here who are socially distancing and wearing masks - me and my wife appreciate it :)

Very sorry to hear about your wife & hope she is well! But kudos to raising three young lady archers! I myself am a lady archer/hunter & I wish I would’ve got started younger in life!

Welcome to the site. F*** cancer btw. Until it hits a close family member, you will never know the hell of it. Each day is a blessing. Most of us forget that.
