Not really about cancer but he does keep me laughing. Several months ago the loved one got a consulting job with a very notable tech company. The loved one did not even have a cell phone with a qwert keyboard. He was going to whip out a map at the end of the meeting and tell the attendees he was checking directions to get back to his hotel room. Everyone told him not to do this, he would look like a dinosaur.
The loved one listened to counsel and his colleague got him to meeting and back with a smartphone. He became a believer in this newfangled cell phone and its powers. He said it saved his life and he may have been sucked over the San Francisco Bay Bridge and never made it to his meeting without said help from smart phone. He got home and got right on it and purchased a used 5S phone and he is a phone guy now. He sends me emoticons with hot dogs and smiley faces and makes me laugh every day.
A few days ago I finished my 6th round of chemotherapy. My last round for two months to two years. We will monitor blood work and symptoms from this point and I will have blood drawn and go to the Dr. every 2 months. It has been a long haul and I thought I would feel better just knowing that it was done. Physically I have felt the worst after this round as any of them. I am hopeful that I will improve and it will be longer before I need anymore treatment. I am still praying that God would completely heal me and take this disease away.
My symptoms are so tedious, not worth going into and they fatigue me to think of them. I have seven more weeks off before I return to work and hope to have some recovery and return to feeling like I did pre cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The loved one stated the other day he thinks my having cancer is a hoax because “you have more energy than I do” I had some great days last week and took the dogs sheep herding. Neither of them are herding breeds but I figured what the heck. I also want to get a versatility certificate on my puppy which means she needs to title in four different sport venues. One day at a time because the beginning of this week were the worst days I have had thus far with a litany of symptoms that are too tedious to inventory.
Today I went on a hike with a friend. A friend who when we go hiking we will invariably get lost, which is what happened. I hiked for 2 hrs with a lot of uphill and am really tired and my knee hurts but I am glad I got to see my friend and glad I got to do the hike. Next week is supposed to be round 6 and the last one for a while. I’m hopeful that is the way it goes.
