When I am remembering to be thankful for even the smallest of things I usually end that entry with "Life is good and I am blessed!" and today was another one of those days that I am happy just to be.
I ventured out by myself very early this morning to go to spend some time with my Mom....I wanted her to see for herself that her baby is doing just fine once again.....I have been told many times that with Cancer it doesn't just effect the patient it effects the whole family and everyone else that loves and cares about that person. I know this is hard for my Mother to see me go through this....she wished it was her instead of me......all Mothers feel that way I am sure...I know I do! I told her, "No Mom I want it to me rather than anyone else that I care about." I don't do very well on the sidelines, I would feel the same helplessness that I know others that care about me do....I don't do well with helplessness. At least with me being the patient I can be proactive..it's all up to me, my A Team of Doctors and the powers that be.
My Afternoon was spent at my Sister's house....laughing! Between me loosing all my hair and her having a full set of dentures put in a few months earlier and taking them out for me to see her toothless we both laughed till we cried........what a sight we must of been! Me bald and her toothless! The kids thought we lost our minds too! Love those Belly Laughs!
Dinner was spent with My Darling Jim and our "Sweetest Day" date. We went to our favorite steakhouse for dinner and I was hungry enough and well enough to eat Filet and Grilled Shrimp...skipped the soup, salad and appetizers...give this girl protein!!! lol And then upon arriving home again I found a dozen PINK roses and a card telling me how lucky I am to have him.....LOL! I am luckier than he will ever know!
So you see, even with cancer I can still say....
Life is good and I am blessed!
