You told this Cancer where to go, and it listened!! Your positive attitude sprinkled with lots of anger toward this stupid cancer is what we all need to hear. Keep on getting great reports, enjoy your visit with your sis, and you and Hans enjoy that wonderful cottage!!
I loved it when you said, “Take that, stupid cancer.” You talk the talk and walk the walk, Kris. What a supergirl in my book! I name you in my prayers every night. You’re around the same ages as my daughter and nieces, and your feisty spirit reminds me of them.
These posts are so encouraging. Congratulations. It’s very inspiring as I start my chemo regimen today that other people are scoring positive points.
Something else that inspired me today was a letter I received from a friend… Pardon me for digressing, but he said this:
“John, your fight is not over, not by a long shot. You wrote at some point that maybe you would be the ‘miracle kid’… But it’s kind of like the old paradox of Predestination – – You are saved already, but you should nonetheless demonstrate this fact by the way you live your life. In other words, you ARE the miracle kid, so live like it.”
I found this little bit to be especially motivational – no matter what age you are diagnosed with cancer, we can all be miracle kids.
Thanks everyone. It was a good cancer day. I still have the thin grapefruit tumor hanging out in the abdomen. I keep telling it that it has to go because I am stronger than it. I hope the chemo can shrink it enough for radiation or surgery…or at the very least keep it from growing.
And I must say, getting of the antidepressents was not as hard as I thought. I was a little teary tonight, but far more “stable” than when they put me on.
