There is so much that is ridiculously awful about undergoing cancer treatment, so much that I thought I’d never be able to endure, so much that has just become routine. But there are also some good things, things that I wouldn’t have otherwise. Things like:
-Driving with the window down. No hair to blow around in my face. This is what it must be like for guys!
-Taking “twin selfies” with other bald people. I had no idea my brother and I looked so much alike. (Love you both, Matt and David!)
-No shaving. Self-explanatory.
-Insomnia = lots of middle of the night brainstorming for grad school projects.
-My babies love to kiss and rub my fuzzy head at bedtime. It’s oddly sweet.
-Bonding with loved ones about chemo/cancer experiences. It’s like a club you never want to be invited to join, but once you’re in, you might as well make the best of it, ’cause it’s for life!
-Having complete confidence in a doctor. (That’s you, Dr. McDonald! You seriously saved my life!)
-Perspective…every day truly is a gift, and the small things are just that – small things. No point in sweating them…I’ve got hot flashes for that!
