The roller coaster is on the way back up again! Yesterday was particularly dark but the sun is shining today. I ran across this in my readings this morning and it struck a particular cord.
nap, drink a little more, take more anti-nausea medication and let go of some more stuff. I had an absolutely wonderful time sitting at the art table for an hour talking with kids and helping them with their art projects. I got to sit there and listen to one little girl tell me about how scared she was about her brother’s cancer and reassure her that it would be okay. Another little boy didn’t want to go get an MRI and we told him how easy it was and that we would make a crown when he got back and he went off with a smile. Another girl was from Dubai and her dad is a dentist I told her my dad was a dentist and we laughed about how silly dentist dads were. Then I got home and spent some time with Dixie waiting for Kat
to get home.
Big news of the day! I have completed half my treatments. Jenn and Michela got me through 2 radiations today. I don’t feel great, but I ate cream of wheat, drank eggnog, ensure, pedialyte and resolved that treatment, calories and rest are my job. Even if that means skipping a night with you. That help me to be more nurturing, caring and healthy.
