You May See the Doctor Now

How many of you, including me greets the day with such fervor and determination, thoughts of good will and productivity, choosing to make the best of what may come your way? (no one raises their hand) As I've heard before the road to hell is paved with good intentions so is my positive attitude toward every day.

The reason for this post is because a co-worker and friend of mine will tomorrow begin the last leg of his journey to rid himself of cancer or at least to beat it completely into something that resembles a squishy grape. I can't remember exactly when his journey began but it was this year, possibly the spring. He has endured multiple radiation treatments, low dose chemo, a 25 lb weight loss, stem cell removal, potassium transfusions, bone marrow tests and tomorrow he will get the mother of all treatments which will include 3 weeks of quarantine, hairloss, mouth sores, nausea, diarrhea, an additional 15 lb weight loss and a 6 week sabbatical from work. He has definitely held his head high and his attitude is nothing short of amazing. He has never grumbled or even asked why this is happening to him.

So for those of us who cry and whine because we have indigestion, a headache, a tummy ache because we ate too much, because we have to get up and go to work, because we have to cut grass or fold laundry, think about my friend and realize that its not that bad.

Carpe diem.

This is how my story began. I'll pray your friend has an easier road than the one I'm currently riding.

I wish I had read this right before bed last night - then I might have gotten up at a reasonable hour instead of late & rushing around.

I need constant reminding that I have it GOOD. Thanks!

And good luck to your coworker. Keep us posted.

Right on!
I never used to understand the adage 'there are worse things in life than death'until I worked as a nurse.
What the human spirit can overcome is truly both humbling and amazing.

Kiss to KW!
