Treatment day…

I’m sitting in the waiting area to get treatment with my parents and Ange. I’ve been quite anxious today for some reason. I think there are so many pieces to this puzzle to worry about, that some days are just heavier than others, like today.
Thank goodness for distractions like my iPad..so I can watch mindless, tv, or movies. I was one of those people who said I didn’t want/need one, and now it constantly saves me from many tears, as it let’s me escape into another world…

Last night I couldn’t sleep at all…and lying in bed in silence was making my mind spin even more, so I watched 1 and a 1/2 movies which absolutely helped…I couldn’t wait for the morning light to seep in so I could start the day and get more chemo inside me.

Which brings me to now…chemo just started…

    Hey honey… Your intuitive way of thinking about this problem that you’re dealing with as a puzzle is so smart, it’s almost like one of those mirror mazes where when you think you’re going the right way, you could end up back where you started. But the chemo and the Ipad are the tools and so is your anxiety even, I think because you are so attuned to your body. And certainly your wonderful parents and husband and friends and doctors and nurses and meds and therapists too, as well as your eating habits and also the 10 minute bicycle rides you’ve been doing…. I can’t know, but I imagine any setback must seem like you’ve been placed back at the start. Maybe it would help to think about all of the tools that you’ve been using, and even the experiences and setbacks, are helping you and your medical team understand the pieces of this puzzle, it’s shape and how it all fits together so you can solve it… Sending love love and love.
    By the way, on another important note, cute top in that photo!

    Yep, you are in that puzzle with so much to think about constantly that escaping with the iPad seems necessary. Can you imagine years ago when you would have had to lug around a TV and VCR? Ha! I hope you napped today just enough to help you have energy but not so much that you aren’t able to sleep again tonight. Sending you gobs of love. Xxxooo

    Prayed for you today as I always do. Happy Belated Anniversary to you and Ange. Lizzy, Alyce, Mike, and I are walking/running in the Race for the Cure on Saturday. We will be thinking about you. Take care and tell Angelo his photos are amazing! (but then he has an absolutely gorgeous subject)
    Love,
