A Wish From Me to You!
Just wanted to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas!
The remaining days before Christmas are going to be busy ones for me. Tomorrow is a CHEMO DAY and I still have several things left to do. I promised myself I WOULD NOT procrastinate but hey, sometimes life just happens that way! I was very sick last week from chemo treatment side effects...all of Friday and most of Saturday went by just like that...and I barely got out of bed. I missed a big Christmas party for my husband's side of the family on Saturday, which was kind of disappointing. Thankfully I felt much better by that evening. I'm learning to be REALLY grateful for the moments I DO feel well these days. I think that's what I'm disliking the very most about this part of the chemo - ya just never know quite HOW you're gonna be feeling. At least with the first 4 treatments, it all seemed to happen like clockwork.
My eyebrows and eyelashes are now going BUH-BYE. It's a funny thing how you just seem to "make peace" with each stage of the journey. Also how you can find a little bit of humor with things in this situation...like how goofy is it that MY HAIR is starting to grow back but now I'm losing the brows & lashes?! So many days I wish I could just stop this ride and get off!
Anyhow, be sure to hug the ones you love a little bit tighter. Take a little more time to reflect on all you have to be grateful for. Most of all, don't take life for granted. Enjoy the Christmas holiday!
