Good Bye Sushi

I start chemo tomorrow morning so that means good bye to sushi, hello hand sanitizer!

I will be back to carrying hand sanitizer with me 24/7, drinking lots of water and eating crackers. I am currently looking online for another wig, just to mix things up. Maybe a long one just like my hair used to be. Although, when I had no hair I always felt much more comfortable wearing my headwraps...especially in the hot weather.

I spent the afternoon with my sister and mother enjoying my last sushi lunch until chemo is over. I was supposed to clean my house a bit and organize my loft, that can wait.

Wish me luck and hope for least amount of side effects. Hand Foot Syndrome does not sound fun but then again neither do the other side effects on the front & back 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.

Until Next time

SMILE!

Keep fighting....keep smiling...keep walking...and know that we are all thinking positively and praying for you. A positive attitude is the best we can all have (even though sometimes that can be difficult) when this "thing" hits us. Marilyn and Tim S. PS...and we won't look for you at Starbucks for awhile.:)

We are praying that you will come through with the least amount of side effect and an infinitisimly small or nonexistant tumors. I think a new do would be entertaining for awhile until it warms up! So go for it! Thinking of you always!
Love,
Anna (and Stephen)

Kelly,

Good luck with the chemo! You have such a positive attitude which will take you a long way with this thing. I know you can beat it and am praying for you and Manny.

Kelly,
I hadn't realized that we were members of the same club. As I read your blog, so many things mimic my life. The grass does become greener, friends become dearer, and husbands become Knights in Shinning Armor. I was diagnosed Stage 2 Breast Cancer in October, and Stage 4 in February. 2 more chemo's to go...
Have a beautiful, peaceful and joy filled day. I would love to walk with you.
Best,
Jim and Theresa Martin
