Happy Halloween 2015 2015年のハロウィン

I remember the last year Halloween, I felt so sick that I did not even want to get up for bathroom.  It was two days after my 5th chemotherapy.  I had my nerve system started to be damaged, peripheral neuropathy, that I lost sensation with my finger tips and toes, and I could not walk uphill.  That was an scary experience.  This year, I was out in streets with my son, going along for trick-or-treating.  I could not help but to think, "I could not even walk this street last year."  I was happy to be able to do this again.
