Honoring all Semi-colons!

Hi everyone,

I received very good news today. My oncologist was shocked that my liver enzymes have almost returned to normal in just one week. He thought I would have to postpone chemo for a month, but I can start again next week. What a relief!

For the Relay for Life at the end of the month, I decorated my luminary bag with purples, blues, and sparkly glitter. I dedicated it to all of the Semi-colons and put the following poem on the back. It's a little dorky, but I wrote it in a hurry. Here's to each of you...

The Semi-colons

We are the Semi-colons
Cancer is our foe.
We battle this Dragon daily
Because we are not ready to go!

We are the Semi-colons
Nutrition is our friend.
We juice, stir-fry, steam, and broil
As we help our bodies to mend!

We are the Semi-colons
Sugar is no longer allowed.
We've tossed out our colas, brownies, and pies
And for this we are extremely proud!

We are the Semi-colons
Broccoli, Garlic, and Green Tea
Have become our daily staples
As they aid our foe to flee!

We are the Semi-colons
A feisty group, no doubt
We share our victories and our fears
As we keep our enemy out!

We are the Semi-colons
You'll never see our scar
But you will notice our spirit
For that no one can mar!

Hugs and Well Wishes to each of you!


Kay

    Sorry about the way the poem was printed. I had it in four line stanza. Oh well, you can still get the gist of it.

    Kay,

    What a great poem!! I hope you don't mind that I copy it and of course, give you credit. It is just fabulous. I intend to print it and have it framed in my office so I can look at it every day and smile. What a great group of supporters and friends.

    I am so happy for you and the good news about your liver enzymes. I sent you a post about my enzymes and they rose also and went back down. Fortunately I did not have to suspend my treatment, but did have to alter it somewhat.

    Contgratulations on the good report. Get through this chemo and get well!!
