I am here in the infusion center, currently being observed after receiving my second treatment. Odd to have looked forward to something like this, I know, but I am thrilled to be dealing the cancer another blow.
If this cycle is anything like the last one, I can expect to sleep excessively for the next week to ten days and feel a bit like I have the flu. After that, I should feel a little better every day until I hit normal, about two weeks from today. Then, wait a week and start all over again. This will be my life for the next year or so, depending on how the cancer responds. And you know, it is a small price to pay for the possibility of getting my life back when it seemed not long ago there was little hope of this.
As I sit here I am struck once again by how fortunate I am in faith, marriage, family, friends,and doctors. When I have so much on my side, how can I lose?
