Today was Chemo Tuesday. I know. It’s so weird. But tomorrow is the Fourth of July and doctors and nurses like to have holidays with their families too. So now I am eleven down, five to go. Wow! Since all the “Wednesday people” had to mess with their schedule this week, the chemo room was extra busy. And there were lots of patients I’d never met before. As usual, I love chemo day. I had a nice run this morning, the girls had a great day, and the cleaning woman came to clean my house while I was away killing some cancer. Eureka!
As soon as the chemo drug started dripping today, I felt tingling in the tumor. Die sucka! Love it!
Maren has been calling this holiday “The United States of America’s Birthday.” She coined this term after I explained the signing of the Declaration of Independence to her. Apparantly, I am a better high school teacher than preschool/kindergarten teacher. The whole happy birthday sentiment is not really accurate, but so cute I think I love it. (Go ahead and sing the Happy Birthday song with “United States of America” in the name slot and try not to smile.) Tomorrow our neighborhood is having a little parade. I will be doing some face paint and decorating one bicycle and one stroller. We will hang out with friends and neighbors. I will wear a big hat. We might go to the pool (I’ll still have to wear a frumpy suit, but new ones are on the way!) We will have a fun and relaxing day together, being thankful for the blessings that our country affords us.
Enjoy your freedom tomorrow.
“In my anguish I cried to the LORD, and He answered by setting me free.” –Psalm 118:5
Free. I like that word. I have a (gifted) ring with that word on it. Cancer-free…
