In the home stretch…


Tomorrow is the big day!

Well, at least one of six big days.

I’m ready…

To be kicked when I’m down.

I have such mixed emotions.  I’m scared.  I really am – more than I have ever been scared before.  I’m in the worst physical condition I have been in so far during this battle – and am facing the biggest challenge yet— and it’s not the chemo that scares me!

So – I have resigned myself to solitary confinement for the next nine weeks to stave off possible infection.  I can do this – I know.  I have resigned myself to the pain of the Neulasta – somewhat.  I remind myself to make no plans, that I will be worse before being “cured” fully, and that the “end” justifies the “means”.  Who knew there would be an appropriate time to use that phrase?

I am scared, but not defeated.

I’m in the home-stretch.

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.
