So I get in my car after work, I’m driving home, thinking. Thinking I should let out a good cry, I mean after all isn’t that what I should be doing? If you thought yes to that question you need to go back and read more of the thoughts I have shared in the past! However, this really and truly sucks and I’m pretty darn ticked off at this point.
Of course I’m not going to cry! As a matter of fact the nausea I was experiencing right after lunch passed and I consumed my usual afternoon regiment of carrots, raisins, yogurt, an apple, a Power Bar and, well that was about it. I was able to get through quite a bit of work considering. Mary and I talked a few times. She found one potential clinical trial that combines Taxotere with some type of vitamin-D concentrate. The best part is at a minimum I would receive the same treatment that I would receive if not in the trial. We’ll see, there is a lot to discuss with Dr. Sheehan tomorrow.
I fight on, again. This is not over. It’s not even close to over. Cancer took the latest round but there are many, many more to come – right now I have a feeling I’m ahead on the scorecard!
At this point I again can’t help but think of others. There is a little boy in our Parish, Ben. He has eye cancer. They thought they had gotten it all but it has come back. Now they have to remove his eye AND he has to go through 52 weeks of chemo (not so bad for me after all is it!!) I’ve never met him but it’s my guess he’s one heck of a kid!!
There is a prayer service for him tomorrow night, I’m going to try to go. I ask that you add him to your prayers.
