Dancing With Cancer, 10/10/12

Dear Diary,

The longer the chemo treatments continue, the longer and worse the side effects.  I am back to not being able to eat much as my mouth and lip sores are too bad and nothing tastes good.  The only place I want to be is in bed and the only thing I want to do is sleep.  Even keeping up on my blog is a job.  I am down to one post a day–IF I am lucky.

I can’t tell you how much I dread the chemo days (like today). I have said before and will say again…if it were not for my loved ones….I would stop the treatments and let the cancer run its course.  However, I did get good news yesterday.  My cancer count bloodwork went from 90 (2 months ago) all the way down to 17 which tells  us the chemo is doing an ass-kicking job.  I figure I will have a cat scan soon and will pray like I never have that the tumors will be completely gone.  To go from not much of a chance to survive to ass-kicking blood draw results…is really something.  It helps me to take my  “poison”.

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.

    Where did my “happy face” go? I’ll try to send a big smile, once again. 😀

    I’m sure there will be a lot of people in blogland praying those tumours have been given their marching orders! The bloodwork sounds like great news 🙂
