Although most of the news throughout the process has been good, recently she found out that she will, in fact, have to have chemotherapy. This is a blow. Chemotherapy is never pleasant. However, she has a great attitude, and I am encouraged by her strength.
Here's her take on it:
I've had to remind myself today of some of the positives in all of this.
- That this is happening in the fall/winter months. I feel like I would be sad missing out on so much summer fun.
- I have health insurance which goes right along with my job and wonderful co-workers who have been so supportive of me.
- I'm thankful that I have already been considering cutting my hair...now I can get rid of all of my split ends! I've also heard that sometimes your hair comes back in different, like curly, or something fun like that.
- I have a wonderful team of doctors taking care of me.
- I only need 8 chemo treatments, it could be worse.
- I have excellent friends who are riding Chevy for me while I'm out of commission.
- And finally I have wonderful family support.
I'm sure there are SO many more things that I should add but I'm tired and can't think straight anymore. :)
