Cancer Update 2.16
Well here we are. Chemo infusion 2. Let’s all be honest, the last one sucked. Of all the things that we have been through with this cancer journey this was the one that lived up to it’s billing. I am confident that we learned some lessons when it comes to nausea and will stay in front of it this time. So far other than the first couple days after that has been held in check. Sleep on the other hand has been a little more difficult. It comes and goes. I have always been one to wake up once a month or so in the middle of the night and have always actually found it peaceful because I can be so productive. No emails, no texts, no phone calls just me and my thoughts. This lack of sleep however is a little different, tired brain, tired body and just not quite able to give in. I need to figure that one out this time. The one thing I have learned is slowing down is not for me so I better work on this rest thing.
The big victory at this time is Bri and I realizing that this may not be the year to host both family Christmas parties the day after infusion. I know this may sound like an easy decision but for us it was a tough one. We genuinely love hosting parties and Christmas tops the list but we both knew this was the year to take off. Thank goodness we have had some awesome family step up to take that weight off or our shoulders. Just know next years Christmas parties are going to be epic!!!! I have said it before but it needs repeating, this journey is made so much easier having a great partner, Bri has been and continues to be a rockstar. A lot of you saw her emotional video from our last infusion. Like you it broke my heart and made me proud all at the same time. I would take all the pain if I could but knowing that she was able to share and feel so much love from so many of you warmed my heart.
Have an awesome Holiday Season!!!! #beatcancer #gratitude #wegotthis #keepgrinding #hustle
