      I did not do the chemo after the surgery. I kept having this still small voice tell me not to do it and when I agreed, small things kept coming up to delay the chemo (abscessed spider bite that required medical care , bad cold, sprained foot,etc.). The onc didn't push but let me know that cancer could recur , but ultimately it was my decision. I had "peace" or "some-type of spiritual contentment" when I finally decided against additional chemo. I just " knew" not to have the additional chemo. My spirit, life, soul, and check-ups are in harmony. I will have been cancer free for 6 yrs. in March.

      I have 4 more rounds to go and it is hard to think of 2 more more months of this misery. I would actually like to quit now, but I have a very determined family with all of their 'rah rah' slogans pushing me to finish. The chemo started out innocent enough, but has gotten worse each session.
      I began treatment as a 'whole' person able to get around and do things. I am now pretty much reduced to a vegetable sitting in a wheelchair. I am betting on whether the chemo or the cancer will kill me first.
