    Sometimes you have to laugh

    I overheard the following conversation today at my cancer clinic.
    Nurse to patient "how did your chemo go?"
    Patient "good no problems no side effects"
    Nurse "but you don't look so good"
    Patient "well I was doing fine until I was run over by a car in the carpark - it knocked me down nearly broke my leg and I hit my head on the ground"

      Poor person! They just thought their major battle was fighting cancer. Really, it is stupid drivers!

      I have a friend who fell in the icy parking lot at the cancer center when she was leaving after her appt. Needless to say, she ended up as an inpatient after the fall. She broke her hip, which already had a tumor in it, so it won't heal.

      That's another example of how we can fight for years to beat cancer and then some stupid thing sneaks up and gets us!

      I'm with marshala - a positive attitude and a sense of humor are two of the most useful things to posses while in treatment and in life in general.
