After a more than a month battling the Stomach Bug from Hell and hardly leaving the house, I had the worse case of cabin fever I've ever experienced. So, this past Monday, John and I took off for three nights at an inn once owned by the Carnegie family on Cumberland Island, a beautiful and undeveloped barrier island in southern Georgia.

Traveling is getting more and more challenging for me but the physical difficulties were definitely worth it. We had three wonderful days of walking and biking through live-oak forests, wildlife viewing, and relaxing on a the inn's giant porch. Cumberland is home to a lot of lucky animals, including wild horses, white deer, and turkeys who roam the ruins of old mansions. Our favorite by far was the prehistoric-looking armadillo.

Now it's time to get back to work, researching alternatives to the Dacogen I'm currently taking. I wouldn't get my doctor's final opinion on the Dacogen for another few weeks, but my white count has gone up since the last round so I'm worried.

My Huffington Post piece continues to bring in suggestions for alternative treatments from people around the world, including a new email from Israel about a Chinese anti-cancer medicine. I haven't had any luck with Chinese medications before, but I'm ready to try something new.

Hope you are all enjoying spring.
