    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    As a nurse, this conversation was not about me! I am on the caregiving role not the patient role. No one in my family has cancer...! Now i feel like I'm walking but I'm not in control, they are not talking to me..must be someone standing behind me! After all..I just had a chest CT in April and everything was fine. Guess God didn't think I needed to know at that time.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Six days since my first chemo and I'm doing just fine. At day 3 I had the gag reflex kick in..and was so tir I could hardly keep my eyes open....but that has been the worst of it. Drove to work to visit friends, had lunch with my daughters and grandchildren on day 4. I am blessed today! Tomorrow I start again...hey I got this!
