Living with cancer
That’s just how life goes – up and down, down and up.
Thanks to everyone who reached out after my last post. The support I receive always surprises me, but it shouldn’t. There are tons of caring people out there who drop everything in their lives when they hear about someone in need.
I’ve been doing better, then I wasn’t, then I was. Stress: so much fun. Everyone who is reading this knows what I mean.
And so, we’re still waiting to see if this chemo is working. Waiting: so much fun.
What do YOU do while you wait for any type of news? I’m learning to just focus on the day.
There is a song that suggests we all should live like we’re dying. Sorry, that’s ridiculous – please don’t do that. I try to live like I’m living.
I prefer the expression: make each day count.
I also believe that we can’t always change our circumstances, but we can change the way we deal with it.
That is helping me wait, knowing the chemo may not be working. It helps with the ups and downs.
I try not to think of myself as someone dying from pancreatic cancer; I am trying to be someone living with pancreatic cancer.
Yes, my husband and I did go cross country down the middle of the street yesterday in the snowstorm beating out the snow plows. So sweet.
