Tomorrow is the start of a new month and the start of a normal week for me! I'm going back to work for the week! I'm beyond excited, I feel like it's the first day of school. I haven't worked a regular shift at work since February 6th. I hope my legs can hold up! Ha.
Nothing too exciting happened today. My "wound" is healing great. I am in a lot less pain than I was yesterday so that is just great. I hope to sleep like a baby tonight too. That hockey game was intense and I really don't even like hockey but I was glued to the TV. During one of the intermissions I picked up a book that was given to me right when I was diagnosed by my Mom's Uncle's daughter, Barbara. It's called "Crazysexy Cancer Tips" by Kris Carr. I just thought I would peruse it, but after I read 3 pages I couldn't put it down. I have never read a book from cover to cover in one sitting and I did just that tonight. I couldn't stop. I was so intrigued by everything in this book!
It is written by Kris Carr and she's a 31 year old that still has cancer. She has a cancer that is just kind of sitting, not doing anything and it really isn't curable. Now isn't that rare and weird. The book was just great. Lots of real life experiences and excerpts from other young females that have had cancer and how they have dealt with it. It covered pretty much every topic you could think of relating to having cancer. It talked a lot about diet. I have some thinking to do and I have heard from a lot of people that now that I have cancer my diet is especially important. There are certain foods that I should be eating (which I'm not) and certain foods I should avoid (which I'm not) that will help my immune system and in fact ward off the cancer. It was really really interesting.
I even signed up for a chemo angel. She mentioned it in the book and there is a website that you can go and sign up to get an angel. It's a real person but it's all Internet based and this person helps you thru the tough times. They try and match you with someone similar to you, etc. etc. They send you letters, small gifts, encouragement, etc. So, why not? May come in handy down the road so I applied. I know I have an ARMY of a support team, but this angel knows first hand what I'm going thru. I should find out in 7-10 if I have another angel guiding me. :)
So, that's about all she wrote from here on this last day of February. I'm looking forward to a new month with new adventures and more ass kicking. I think I'm doing a pretty good job so far and don't worry, I plan to keep it up!
Love you all-E
