Preparing for final chemo tomorrow…. Yayyyyyyy!!!!....
This has been quite a journey for me. It’s very surreal that the hardest part will soon be over. The hardest part on my body—that is. The journey itself is not ending quite yet. I will have to establish my new “norm”—which is actually a good thing. It may seem crazy, but I’m excitedly looking forward to this.
Once I have energy to do things again, I plan to make the most of my time. I want to make sure that I am enjoying my life and appreciating all that I have and can enjoy.
It’s said that it takes something like this to make us realize how blessed we are… But I’m grateful that I’ve gotten the wake-up call. Life is so precious… and valuable.
So, as I start my steroid regimen tonight, I am reminded of how far I’ve come. I’m looking forward to the next phase of my treatment. And I’m praising how faithful God has been to me throughout this process. He’s carried me when I didn’t have the strength to carry myself… And for that I am so appreciative.
As I lay down to sleep, I’m hoping that I don’t sleep is not hiding from me tonight… Sleep, where are you?... Well… Looks like I’ve found insomnia instead… Yeah… This is one of the things that I will NOT miss! :)
