Cancer Sucks Update #10

Recovery is one hell of a road.

One I’d be fine having left untraveled, but that’s not really an option…


I’ve said before, in an earlier post, how long it’d been since I’d last written. Well, that has nothing on this post. It’s been around five months or so since I’ve updated, but believe me, we’ve all kept busy since the last I’ve shared. Now, since I had a quick trip to the ER this past weekend, I thought it might be a good time to get all caught up.

I’d really love to sit here and type out pretty descriptions of rainbows and unicorns filled with hope and laughter, telling everyone how strong I’ve been through it all. But the truth is, this cancer experience has come close to breaking me. A few times. I don’t know how all of those cancer survivors do this. There are so many who are so much younger, so innocent, so tiny… and then others who are so much older, so weak, so small… and they battle through this chemo crap like caped heroes in the latest Avengers movie.

Cancer Sucks Update #9

Last Chemo Treatment!

For now…Cross your fingers for a long remission!


Since March I’ve had three more chemo treatments, including what we’re hoping will be my LAST CHEMO TREATMENT this past Tuesday! (April 23) Oh, I rang the heck out of that chemo bell, baby, and it felt great. This little cootie adventure started out with some pretty ugly survival chances, hovering around the 14% range, so this might be the last chemo for now, but either way, it’s the last one for some time! I had some of my best chemo supporters there with me to make it even more special, including my chemo battle buddy, Lorraine, who had her last treatment on April 2nd and is so far receiving incredible results.
