A few random facts about my life as a cancer patient:
I have treatments on Tuesdays (two weeks on, two weeks off).
I always feel better by Saturday. Much better. Almost as if I'd never had treatment at all.
The chemo regimen I am currently on makes me feel crappy but is NOTHING like "make you bald and bloated and unable to tolerate light, sound or motion, so sick you cannot ever imagine feeling well" first six rounds that I went through back when I was first diagnosed (and we were still going for a cure).
I will be in treatment for the rest of my life. This is (hopefully) not a short term thing.
Going over posts from this time last year has served to remind me just how scary things were then. And how much better they are now.
And if you ask me on a Saturday, I will almost always tell you that life is really very good, indeed.
