It’s been rough…

The last couple of days have been rough as I am enduring chemo round 6, the half way mark. The meds don’t seem to help enough with breakthrough nausea and I have been in the bathroom dealing with vomiting and sweats and other yuck. To get me through the bad stuff I just reflect on the good stuff. On Wednesday the cancer clinic before I began chemo I made two new friends out in the waiting room. I was wearing my black Earth Angel t-shirt because I like to take my angels with me and a young woman my age came up to me and asked me where I got my shirt because she said it brought her peace just by reading it. That was so very nice of her to say that. She was the caregiver to another woman by the name of Blanche that was waiting to start her chemo too. She told me that she has ovarian cancer and stated the “bad one”. We shared our stories and we both are very positive and not giving up or giving in. We also talked about the relay for life. She has never been and didn’t know about it, but I gave her some info and hopefully she will attend it at least once. It is such an incredible experience. Jonia, her caregiver gave me a big hug when my treatment was done and wished me well. Of course I hugged her back. When someone tells you that you have a beautiful face and eyes when you are wearing a bandana and no make up, it touches you right to the core. I thank them both for the kindness and wish them well in the crazy battle. Special thanks to my Mom to taking me to treatment and also special thanks to Rick for taking me back to London today for chemo take down.
