Chemo, why you gotta be like that?

Holy crap.  Chemo is kicking my ass this weekend.  Or else I just did too much yesterday, that could be it too.  I got out of bed yesterday morning, crawled back in about mid-morning, woke up around 11:30am, we were out for a few hours, and I went right back to bed as soon as we got home.  I'm not a huge fan of this, but what can you do?

Fun things that have nothing to do with cancer:  My little girl and my awesome husband tested for their yellow belts at tae kwon do yesterday.  I'm super proud of them.  On Friday, I not only got to kidnap a baby, I got to nap with said baby in my recliner.  It's been AGES since I got to nap with a baby.  I rediscovered the joy of mixing a can of chickpeas with some vegan mayo, tomatoes, and pickles.  My main plans today include gathering ingredients for mushroom risotto and going to a birthday party.

I would say that of all my recent chemo weekends, I felt the least sad about this one.  Chemo gets me down, feeling so sick gets me down.  This weekend has been pretty good though.  I have a lot going for me, which I always knew. 


  1. I'm glad that you're (emotionally) feeling okay with this chemo weekend. I think about you a lot! I would give anything to be able to have mac & cheese with you, Reese & Eli one more time.

  2. Naps with babies are sooo nice ;)

We are so proud of Reese and Eric, with the Tae Kwon Do. Eric is a great dad, and husband! We miss you all!!! Love, Mom and Dad. We love you also Eli!!!!
