2 down, 4 to go

Chemo #2 has come and gone and again was uneventful. Good. I'd like for it to stay that way. Okay? Thanks. 'Perciate it.


Today is also our 5th wedding anniversary. What a way to celebrate huh?

(Scene One)
Tim: "Hey Honey, whaddya wanna do for our anniversary"
Me: "Oooo, Ooooo!! I know! Let's go to Chemo!!"
Both: "Yayyyyyyyyy!" *while jumping up and down and clapping hands*

(Scene Two)
Tim: "Honey. What are we doing for our anniversary?"
Me: "Chemo #2"
Tim: "Oof."
Emily: "Yeah. Happy Freakin' Anniversary"

Tim: "Happy Anniversary, love you" *kiss*
Emily: "Happy Anniversary, love you" *kiss*
(return to eating cereal and watching TV)

How do YOU think it went down? Haha. That's what I thought.

So, anyways, we're two chemo's into this and truthfully it hasn't been "that" bad, physically. Sure it sucks that I had to shave my hair off to help make it less painful to lose it, but I am starting to think I look kinda cute; and I've had to have 3 surgeries in the span of a month or so but the drugs kept the pain at bay and I was sore for only a couple days each so that's good :) And! even though there *has* been some marked nausea and fatigue, I was able to go about my life the "week of chemo" with a modicum of success. So with that I will thank the universe for those things and bow down to its glory.

Cheers. :)

  1. Hi Emily, I was reading your blog today and I thought I'd drop by and share a story. About a month ago I came across this movie called "The Beautiful Truth". It was eye opening to say the least but it talked about a man who cured cancer in the 1920's. Since the cure required no more smoking and that the American Medical Association was backed by Philip Morris at the time; he and his methods were scoffed at and discredited. However; over the past 60 years, thousands of people have used the Gerson Therapy to recover from so-called “incurable” diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. ( To this day a lot of doctors will still discredit the gerson therapy but I've had my share of doctors over the past 10 years and I know one thing conclusively, Doctors don't know everything. Give it a look and check it out for yourself. In the mean time you can order that movie "The Beautiful truth" on Netflix.
