Round 3 Comes To An End

Today was my final chemo shot of Round 3 (of 4) before the stem cell transplant at Emory in “May”. It has at times felt like forever and then at times like it’s flying by. I feel good, but tired. I’m not sure if the chemo is progressively zapping my strength or not, but at least, for the most part, I have had a decent run without terrible side effects. 

I see so many waiting at the Dr and it’s obvious they feel much worse than I do. It’s sad that cancer affects so many people, with so many side effects,  so many other lives touched. It is sad, but it also brings out the best in people. They cook meals, run errands, drive them places, sit with them and countless other things that help out. 

It’s more sad that its seems to take the bad to bring out the good. 

So, another thank you to everyone that has helped or wanted to help. The willingness is overwhelming. The completed jobs appreciated. Without you, it wouldn’t have been the same.
