Today was the second meeting of the Triple C Club. We had a great time, and it’s always so good to see my new friends. It’s a sad reminder that we all have cancer, but we are all in such good spirits that it is easy to forget all over again! We got to Coral Tree at rush hour for lunch, and emptied out the joint by the time we left! We know how to party us cancer girls, let me tell you.
We talked about everything from our doctors, to treatment and surgery, to our kids. Boy our kids are giving us all headaches. They are all around the same age, and personally I think that Asher is starting to be affected by the cancer and all of the changes around here. It is hard to not be affected whether you are 4 or 34 honestly. Cancer sucks and there’s no way around it.
Otherwise this week has been status quo. I am feeling pretty normal again, except for the sheer and utter exhaustion that hits me daily at 2:30. Like clockwork I feel my body sinking and my eyes rolling to the back of my head. Apparently it is totally normal, how awesome is that? What I do forget, is that all of this is cumulative. The chemo that is. I’ve always said, I’ll be ok and it won’t happen to me but it does. I am tired. Really really tired! Next week I have my LAST chemo and I cannot WAIT!!! I just wish the time would speed up and I would be in “the chair” already. As crazy as it sounds, I am really excited to get chemo. It might burn through my veins, but at least I will remember it. I like to go out with a bang. Or, burn.
I have a lot to keep me busy until next week. We have the kid’s birthday party this weekend. Remind me why I decided to do that again? Next week is also filled with a few doctors appointments and other stuff. I will be running around while I can and enjoy it.
I’ll leave you with this picture that I have been sending around all day. I can’t help but giggle and hope you do to.
