This is a doctor who does not smile lightly. She didn’t even smile to be polite when we first met because she had to give me bad news. Apparently I look and sound good and my bloods are good.
I may actually live past 2017.
To be honest, I don’t feel like time is short. I don’t feel like I have cancer. Most of the time, I don’t even feel like I’m undergoing chemo. Sometimes I’m extremely debilitated but it always passes.
The hardest part will be getting myself moving again after chemo is over. But one of the best parts will be stuffing my face with salad. For six months, I might eat nothing but leaves, radishes, peppers, onions, cucumbers, and tomatoes sprinkled with crumbs of bleu cheese.
