So good to hear from you. Thanks for sending the update. It is amazing what can give us a sense of relief or calm and hope during such times. If it is the fact that chemo is plant-based, then so be it.  

It sounds like you and husband will have a fair amount of driving to and from treatments. I'm glad the Canadian Cancer Society can help out when you need it.

Do your doctors and nurses know that you live on a farm? How much does he have to stay away from animals? No touching at all or just not cleaning out stalls, litter boxes and the such?

Yes - a lot of driving but it will be manageable I believe. 
As for the animals - I am not sure since I was not present during that conversation and my husband tends to overdramatize. According to him - he should not even be in the same vicinity ... however, when we got home on Friday he spent about 2 hours with the horses. I am, though, taking over the chores as much as possible.
