I agree!  I'm sorry that there seems to be no end to all you have to go through, but I'm so happy you are keeping up the fight!

Thanks! I am going to try to compartmentalize for the holiday weekend, if I can. Then, I will swing into action on Tuesday. I appreciate your kind words.

Even though we have every reason to hate cancer and everything bad in this world, but the emotion of hate is not good for you. It will add a useless nagative component to your days, it changes the way you see yourself, others and the world.

It's inevitable that we all have this emotion in tough times, but you have to train yourself to seek out the good things even in your crapiest days, find them, stop, and appreciate them.

In so many ways cancer puts a new perspctive in our lives. Remember the phrases that you could never live by:

"One day at the time."

"Live like this is your last day."

"Every day do something that scares you." Elinor Roosevelt

"Live Like you are dieing."

"What would you do if you had 6 months to live?"

"When you are walking through hell, just keep walkind." Churchill

Here is our chance to suck the juice out of life, because we are going through the worst and have less and less to lose.

Wish you all the best. Laz

All those cliches are just great if you are feeling well enough to "keeo walking". When you feel that cancer is sucking the life out of you, you can't walk anywhere!
