    Thanks so much for your response. This cancer journey is tough stuff. I just get so angry sometimes that I have to drag my kid through this. Do you ever have those days?

      I hear you, this journey is definitely tough. And yes, I've had those kind of days. At first I would get angry at myself but then I realized "cancer" is at fault here. It isn't your fault that you have cancer, you didn't ask for this disease, none of us did. You can be angry, but be angry at cancer. My kids are 11, 14 and 15. How old is your son/daughter?

      My little guy is 3. Of course he doesn't have much of a clue what is going on. He just thinks this is normal. How are your kids doing with it? How is chemo going for you?

      I bet he's a cutie! :) yeah, he's definitely too young to really understand or be fully aware of what's going on. If you are like me I'm sure your little guy motivates you to stay strong. My kids definitely do. Do you have a good support system to provide help as you go through treatment?

      My kids are doing good. I've explained to them my diagnosis, treatment, possible side effects, etc. I have not mentioned anything about prognosis or mortality. Why? Because my future is not set in stone, just like everyone else on this earth. There is no need for anyone to worry, not even me. My kids understand I might look different or not seem like myself sometimes. They know treatment is tough on the body but also understand that it is needed.

      Chemo is going good thankfully. I am so glad I've been able to continue treatment without any delays. My last scan showed the chemo was shrinking the cancer. I was so happy to hear some good news, especially after getting news that the prior treatments hadn't worked and the cancer had metastasized to my lungs. We can't lose hope, not ever. I've said before that giving up is not an option for me. How is treatment going for you?
