Comment from my daughter, Jenna.
Yup, it's true. When my last cancer situation started in 2013, I commented on this blog, that I felt like I was in an old cowboy movie. Remember when the Indians would attack the pioneers or whatever, and the wagon train would form a circle so they would be protected in the middle? Well, my daughter reminded me of that moment. Yes, all you wonderful people out there are sending your best feelings my way. I appreciate it. I am absorbing it. And I am feeling quite ferocious and fierce about fighting this battle. And I feel stronger, now that I am circled by your wagons.
Yesterday was a total surprise. The messages I received on Facebook were appreciated very much. I even heard from some lovely ladies that I have not seen for a while. That shows you how true my friends are when they come to your rescue at a time you really could use extra prayers and good juju!
My last chemo was two days ago. This was the day that I got the two kinds instead of just one. It really didn't effect me too much this time. I came home and slept for two hours (maybe I already mentioned this before . . . sorry. I'll blame it on "chemo-brain"). But at least I wasn't resting for four days, like last time.
The only thing strange about going to the oncologist this time is that I am actually seeing the big dog, Dr. Ghosh, each visit. Usually I see my Mindy, the Nurse Practitioner. Usually Dr. Ghosh starts you off on your journey, and then after that, you see the techs and Mindy exclusively. I may be reading much more into this than is necessary.
Other than that, nothing much has changed. I mowed for several hours yesterday, and now need to go do the edge trimming today.. . if it doesn't rain.
I have continued on my writing, and have finally completed the seven-story series of my tales about Molly and Pet Ladybug and their wonderful village of Meadowview. I had several things done before I got cancer last time, and ditched the whole process to get through that period. It has taken me a while to get back in the groove, but now I am serious in finding someone who will guide me where I need to go to get this book in motion. Time is running out for us all, so I guess this is the moment when I need to try harder. No matter, it is a lovely hobby and I enjoy every minute of sitting at the computer, and thinking up tales that satisfy the imaginative part of my brain. whoo whoo!
Anyhoo, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of you wonderful friends out there. I am glad that I finally announced this "bump in the road" part of my life. I wasn't too keen on talking about it yet, but it is what it is. So thanks again to the best people in the world.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
