Life was all roses and ponies and kittens...
Then cancer struck and my fate has been written

Blood tests, Taxol bags and vaginal slings
These are a few of my “favorite” things

Prominent lymph nodes and palpable lesions

Morphine, steroids and oozing incisions

Wigs, hats and scarves decorated with bling
These are a few of my "favorite" things 


Endless fatigue, chemo brain and hot flashes
Drawing eyebrows and gluing eyelashes
Remission in winter, recurrence in spring
These are a few of my "favorite" things


Nausea, ascites and bowel adhesions
Letting insurance make my decisions

Wondering all night what tomorrow will bring
These are a few of my "favorite" things


When CT sucks
When IV stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I keep hoping for N.E.D.

So let's go on to the next song:

"The hills are alive with the sound of chemo"

(Take it -- anyone!)
