I came to play

We spent five hours at the cancer centre today for my 20 minute appointment. Thankfully mom with was with me to pass the time.

My Oncologist, who I love, started talking about how some other people would handle this road bump. Dropping one of the two chemo drugs, lessening dose. Talked around it for a while. And then said, essentially, if we do that, and I don’t end up beating this that we’ll always wonder and regret dialling it back. He wants to move full steam ahead and manage through the fall out and readjust next round if necessary. Then asked how do I feel about that.

My response: I came to play.

So we go full bore on Monday. Full dose chemo and add radiation. My body might not be ready, but my mind is.

Bring it.

It really makes one look back and realize how much we take things for granted and how much we sweat over nothing. I’m in your court Jo and pray all the time that you will be given the strength to handle these treatments….and when it’s all over…..WE WILL PLAY! Love you! Nana
