Each day – from this point on – I hope to be…

A little stronger

A little healthier

A little kinder

A little more patient

A little more optimistic

A little more thoughtful

A little more active

A little smarter

And a whole lot less of a patient myself.

This day, September 1, marks the lowest point in my chemo cycle.  I am tired. I am tired, but I am happy that things are about to turn a corner.  I don’t know what waits around that corner…. other than “more”.  And I feel blessed about that.

About inmycorner

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.

    To-more-o! Yes, there is more coming and I love what you wrote. You will be less of a patient and even “more patient” – because it can only get better now. Thinking of you and sending a big hug! Glad we’re FB friends, too. 🙂

      Well, Karen, if it works for you – it sure as heck will work for me! I love it – and I love the song. Thank-you. Hope you are well too and remaining positive. But, sounds like you have the song, so…
