I will not waste my time on what happened with my blood draw. In summary, security was called, badge was thrown at me, tears were shed, quick recovery by lab draw employee, and future escorts to the registration by director/manager. It was a day filled with some strange energy force that was really trying to mess with my new process. I am on day 3 and let’s just say, it better be worth it. It definitely feels like the movie Groundhog Day, but with chemo pills. This is not easy, but I keep telling myself that I will have 2 weeks of freedom! I had a call today from my nurse who had a few tips and tricks for me. Hopefully, they will work soon as my head is spinning.  Of course, I had the news that my tumor marker went up some points, but I am not focusing on that…it could be the new lab or what they call “cell death”. Either way, until there is a trend one way or another, I am continuing with my full strategy of taking these pills.

In the meantime, I came up with my top 5 cancer comments that are really special to me:

1. From some doctors, “you are not making it easy to know you are sick since you are too peppy”.

2. You don’t sound like someone who has cancer.

3. You are so lucky to be wearing a wig, now you don’t have to have it colored or cut. (very true and not annoying, but can be annoying on a bad cancer job day)

4. I know someone who had your cancer…and she died.

5. My favorite is: the look, head tilt, deep sigh, look of pity and gigantic pause…the look when you don’t know what to say.

Off to sleep once again….
