Today is the big day of the next chapter in kicking cancers arse!!
Emotions yeah we have become great friends
thanks to a fellow blogger I reread the events of that day on May 21st
and life has been an up and down roller coaster from there
Some highs and some lows
I am grateful I couldn’t sleep that night and decided
to blog it. I can see how far we have come since then
Esp since some days it feels like we are fighting an uphill battle with
no chance of winning.
I only wish I had blogged better in the days, weeks, and now months since that day.
Today is the beginning of a new chapter and that roller coaster of new feelings
is back. Exactly what are we to expect.
We are told fatigue is the most common and due to his location for his cancer
diarrhea is most likely to take place as well. I am reading increased sensitivity to cold
Guess they forgot to mention that is already in place since surgery.
Carl has worn his winter coat much of the summer along with long sleeved shirts
in the past month even had to track down a light weight wind/water proof pair of gloves
A light breeze on our walks froze his hands
I am use to his hands being extremely warm so this is new
Use to be I could touch his warm hands and know the world was going to be alright
Now with his hands so cold I often wonder what will tomorrow bring
Our world stopped for a minute or several nearly 5 months ago.
We kept pushing forward and took comfort in knowing prayers and positive
thoughts were out there.
Today as we begin this new chapter of unknowns
I know this part of the battle we are not alone
It is ok to try and do things on your own, but don’t let pride get in the way to ask for help,
There is so much that need attending to that sometimes you can’t
do it all alone and admit that things are NOT okay.
One has to do what they have to do and that is what we have been doing
Just like a squirrel getting ready for winter
Erratically running around to get things in order
We for the past near 5 months have been doing what it takes to survive
Everything the past few years I know in my heart were to prep for this very event
Only I wish we had been better prepared but then guess you can never really
be prepared for such an event as this.
