Hit Me With Your Best Shot
HA! I showed chemo who's boss. ME. I am boss of chemo. Friday I finally started feeling back to myself and I ate lots. I ate at In-n-Out twice! How's that for protein? The rest of the weekend was awesome, I've felt so good (comparatively). Just in time to get chemo again tomorrow. Hopefully it will go better this week since I am a little tiny bit more healed.
And our puppy is making leaps and bounds! He slept almost the whole night last night and today he walked to the door when he needed to go potty. So proud of the little stinker.
People always say time flies or where has the time gone? You wouldn't think those statements would apply to me at this time in my life, but when Heavenly Father assures us that our trials will be "but a small moment" He really means it. It seems like just yesterday that I was diagnosed. And although there have been times that have gone very slowly, in the long run they are but a small moment of my life. It has been just over 5 months that I have been a cancer fighter. When you think that I have been alive for 270 months and my treatments will end about 7 months after diagnosis, that's barely 2.5% of my life! I hope that in my future trials I can remember that they WILL be short in the eternal perspective. Concentrating on each day individually has really helped me. Instead of focusing on the future and how long it may seem, how far away the end may look right now, I focus only on today. Today I am feeling good. Today I have enough energy to play with my puppy. Today I looked cute. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow has yet to be, but today I am alive and happy and very blessed.
