Even cancer gets a Christmas card
Tomorrow I go in for round 5 of my chemotherapy treatment, more blood tests and hopefully, come Thursday… Christmas Eve, more good news.
I’m happy I’m nearing the end of my treatment… for now at least. So far I’ve gone through 200 hours of chemo infusions and I have another 100 to go. Knowing what lies ahead in the immediate 72 hours after the infusion doesn’t fill me with a lot of Christmas cheer but knowing that the cancer is retreating…. well…. there are just no words for that…. even though it means I’ll be not much more than a ghost to my family on Christmas day.
I’ve been working all week, which is great news for our bank account and I’ve had a number of jobs confirmed for 2010 which is great. They will help us get back on our feet financially after all of this is done and dusted.
I don’t have anything terribly inspiring to write this time….. I’ve just been thinking how I’d really like to be able to kick this cancer in the nuts, like physically, for real. And then, when it’s doubled over in agony, a quick knee to the face. Yep…. that should do it.
I hope you all have a beautiful time this Christmas with your families and loved ones, be it white and crisp or blue skies and beaches.
And for the cancer, yes, even cancer…. here’s my Christmas message to you.
(Feel free to turn it UP and jump around like a madman….. I am.)
