Today's post is more for myself than anyone. At my last oncology appointment, my doctor gave me the pink boxing gloves pictured above as a motivator for me to punch cancer. I thought that was a very thoughtful gift! I just wanted to share them with you so that you, too, could help me remember to punch cancer.
Chemo is cumulative. It stays with you and one treatment builds on top of the next. One would think that in 21 days' time, a body would be able to get all of the chemo out of the system, but it can't. Anyway, I say all of that to say that this has been a rough week. I've just felt icky all week long. But, that's to be expected with the 3rd round of chemo. On the positive side, I'm half-way done with my treatments.
I was only able to pull through 2 1/2 days of work, and my tummy has had me doubled over in pain on numerous occasions.
So, friends, today I'm reminding myself to punch 'er lights out! This battle will be over before I know it!
