New week, new day, new opportunities.

it was an interesting weekend for sure.  Record highs on Saturday, I got a walk in, and back to the freeze on Sunday.  This crazy weather is supposed to be back in the 50s by mid week.  Hopefully that means I will be ab le to get a few more walks in.  I am also going to test out my neuropathy and make a trip back to Pittsburgh.  I miss my mom, yes mom I said I miss you, so I will take Luke with me to have another driver in case I need it.

The new chemo is not supposed to cause neuropathy so I just need to be patient and wait for this stupid side effect to move its way on out.  Not sure what is worse, the numb hands or feet.   I think it is probably the hands right now.

Cancer took another friend this weekend.  It comes so close to losing Kim and has brought back many of the raw, scary feelings for what my destiny is.  I keep praying the Lord will give me many more sunsets, again I have so much I want to do.  I am not ready to leave this earth yet!! Lord please allow me to have more time.

Derek’s cancer was lymphoma.  It was his second time in the ring with cancer, having beaten lymphoma  a few years back.  He was my chiropractor and friend.  Whenever I went to see him we would talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers and Penn State Nittany Lions, he was a huge fan.  He was younger than me by about 10 years and leaves behind a beautiful wife and three young children.  I think about the kids, how do they deal with the loss of the father, they aren’t even in high school yet.  Their dad won’t be there for so many life events, High school, graduation, college selection, first job, marriage and grand children.  Of course there are so many more and I pray for strength for Leslie as she will be there alone for her kids.  What about my kids?  They are a little older but there are still many life events to happen.  How will they handle it if their Mom is not there for them?  I have to fight!

Today’s Gratitude: the sound of the heater as it warns my home, Eric and ALL his support and friends who check in and stop by to visit.
