Little Chemo is easier than Big Chemo, for sure. It was all very uneventful actually. I arrived at the cancer center right at 9am, got infused, and was done by about noon.
I slept for most of the afternoon though. I don't know if it's still the benedryl or if the chemo just makes me tired or what. The kids played and I dozed, waking to quell fights. It seemed to work out well for us all.
I was running the other day. Sometimes when I run, I don't think about anything. Other times, I think about everything. My last run was full of thoughts. My thoughts usually start out cranky and complaining, but move to glad and grateful. I have so so much to be thankful for. Aside from the cancer, life is pretty great. Yesterday was a cool, sunny day. I got to spend it with my kids. I get to hug my kids every day, and I get to hug Eric too. We have opportunities to travel. There is plenty of food in our pantry, and we're warm and dry at night. We have a car that runs and Eric has a job. My kids are healthy. I'm thankful for every day I wake up and every night when I go to sleep. Life is amazing, and I plan to fight to be around for a long time.
