As I walked up to the Cancer Center today, I saw a Joan sitting on the bench outside.
Joan is currently fighting lung cancer and has a complex treatment regimen. I’ve seen her at 10:45 for my check in and she’s already been there for three hours having chemo and other things.
Two weeks ago I saw her leaving as I was coming in. She was pulling out of the drive in a convertible – top down! “It’s my gandma-mobile” she said as she waved.
Like I said, I saw her sitting outside today and I sat down next to her for a moment. She handed me a piece of paper. It was a certificate signed by all the treatment staff saying she has finished radiation!! YAY!!! I LOVE celebration days! It feels like there’s another winner in this fight!
So today – regardless of the challenges you’re facing, know that Cancer took a kick in the ass today!!!!
After radiation, I headed off to Physical Therapy with Kerry. We do flexibility work and some massage. I’m a little sore but it’s all for the best because I will have a strong lymphatic system and broken down scar tissue and excellent range of motion.
