A Happy Girls Journey with Cancer

Sad Days Need Happy Thoughts

on March 8, 2013

Yesterday was a hard day for me. I was feeling really sore, it kind of felt like 1 step forward and 2 steps back. I know that I will have days like that, but they really bring me down when they happen. Although I’m sure it’s normal, it makes me think my body is failing me. Thankfully I’m generally a happy person, so I laid down for 15 minutes and regrouped my thoughts…remembered the good stuff, my parents are here, I’m alive, my husband loves me, my dog hasn’t left my side, my bills are paid. What more could I ask for? (Not to have cancer, but we won’t go there).

My Saint John oncologist called yesterday, I have my first appointment with her next Wednesday. I don’t know what will happen at this appointment, but my best guess is we will go over my treatment plan and schedule. I will have the chance to ask any questions that I have. Thankfully Owen will be going with me, he tends to ask more questions then I do. I don’t know happens to me when I get in front of a doctor. I have a list of questions, but then I sit there and listen to the doctor and go blank. It’s like I forget how to read! This didn’t happen before cancer…so I’m sure it’s just nerves taking over, I guess that’s why they say to have an advocate with you!!

I hope everyone enjoys the weekend. I’m looking forward to spending a little time with Owen, he’s been working long hours so I haven’t seen much of him lately. Don’t forget to turn your clocks ahead, longer days are here!!!

I think I missed something when I was in the hospital, or while I have been recovering as I haven’t been on my computer much. Harlem Shake. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve heard the song, but what the heck is going on with these weird 30 second YouTube clips? I found a video where someone compiled the Top 10 Harlem Shake video’s. Enjoy!

    Sending positive thoughts your way 🙂 I remember the pain of my surgeries and I can’t imagine you are feeling too well right now. It’s usually worst about a week or so afterwards, but it gets better. Take it easy, let yourself be pampered and enjoy the relaxing 🙂 xx
