Today was one of those days where the simple act of crawling out of bed was a major triumph.

A Difference in Perspective

Yesterday I was a bit down. Discouraged because I wasn’t able to go through with the chemo treatment as planned.

False Start

Yesterday was Chemo Eve, or so I thought. I went yesterday for my labs…

Chemo Eve

That’s right, it’s Chemo Eve. Somehow, I will NOT be breaking out the champagne for this one.

What a Difference a Day Makes…

The Big C and Me

I recently went to the doctor because I knew there was something not functioning correctly. Sure enough, I had a flare up of diverticulitis. So armed with antibiotics and the doctor’s instructions to stay on clear liquids for the week, I returned home to battle it off. With the number of times I’ve had to do clear liquids, you’d think it’d get easier. It doesn’t. Then I returned after a week for the re-check and to review the blood results … and had a bit of a surprise waiting for me.
