This will be The Cancer Chronicles now.
Well, the new treatment is scheduled. I start Tuesday. Merry Christmas to me! I’ll be at the infusion center all day….the hardest part will be keeping me there. Tomorrow I have a PET scan. I think we are going to schedule another CT of my brain soon too…..I’ve had a gnarly headache today.
I look in the mirror and think: I should shave my head soon before the hair falls out…..this is the one time I could go all “GI Jane” on my head and no one would think I was nuts.
I got some energy back this afternoon and I decided to make some kung pao chicken. I’m trying to gain a little weight before next week.
Instead of asking “why me”….instead I’ll be glad it’s me. My mother said she wishes she could carry the cancer for me……that’s how I feel…..I’m glad I can carry it. It could be my child or my husband or another family member or friend. I’m tough. It will take a lot for it to bring me down. Maybe I’m meant to have this so I can share the whole experience and help others through it……the Donut Chronicles will take a short break for The Cancer Chronicles. I can blog from the Infusion Center…..maybe it will keep me in my chair!
