Tomorrow is the LAST AC infusion. Yippee! I'd do a cartwheel if I was more certain I wouldn't crash into something! I cannot wait to have this major milestone down. I think of all of the hurdles so far, this is the one I have looked the most forward to. A double mastectomy was nothing compared to dose-dense double drug chemo. Everyone keeps telling me that Taxol will be better. I'm coming after you folks if you are lying to me!
And the other big day is the big wedding! All I can say about that is "it's about damn time!"
I will say, I am curious to see how I manage tomorrow. I am sure it will be fine, but I am considering this "advanced placement" chemo day! I'm thinking attending a wedding reception on the same day of infusion is not for the rookies. Fortunately, I have a lovely survivor who was at my wedding on the day of infusion and she will be there tomorrow to remind me it's doable.
A big special thank you to my Zia for picking a reception location that has the rooms in the same location. I know you picked the place because it's romantic and beautiful, but it also has the lovely perk of being chemo patient friendly. Nice job!
On another note, recent times have been a very interesting study for me into the power of the mind. It's amazing how strong of an influence our thoughts have on us, whether it be positive or negative. I am working on taking control of that influence and using it for good, not evil. The mind can run away faster than a sports car if you let it. But with focus and determination, you can reign it in, and have it work for you. I'm practicing getting better at that every day.
I laughed in the car tonight while running my errands. PLJ had a pretty upbeat play list going. "In the Middle" by Jimmy Eat World came on. I haven't heard that song in a long time, but years ago, it was a bit of a theme song for me. If you don't know it, it's about hanging on tight and weathering the ride, knowing that in the end, everything will be alright, alright...
