[cancer] Another voice heard from

is brave and honest about our chemo experience. Go read. I’ll still be here when you get back.

I don’t talk so much about her end of it, or ‘s, or ‘s, or the rest of my family and friends. This is my journey, and it’s not for me to expose their fears. I will say that , after months of anger and denial, has been asking detailed questions in a very mature manner. Others in my circle are coming to terms, one or two are not.

As says, this round is almost over. I may wind up sleeping through most of the rest of the process, the way things are going. By coincidence, I come off the needle on infusion session number 11 on June 6th the day of the 46th birthday. (This is why my birthday party is July 3rd, so I can stay awake for it — you are coming, yes?)

So much to celebrate, so much to fear. So much love, so much trauma. Cancer sucks.

    There is no question but that you deserve a “King’s Birthday Observance”.

    Today is my birthday. We were supposed to be in Paris. Instead I took my chemo pills this morning and radiation at 11 am. I have no idea when my “Birthday Observance” will be (probably 2011, but at least I will be around for 2011) as I have no idea now when chemo will end.

    Thank you for the link to [info]calendula_witch’s post which probably mirrors my husband’s feelings somewhat. I need to cut him as much slack as he is cutting me. He never signed up to be this much of a caretaker.

    Your posts are scary to me, but I appreciate the truths in every one.

      Happy Birthday. I’m sorry you have to go through this. Believe me, I understand. No one signs up for this.
