Today I am in pain.
It’s like the all over body ache you get when you have the flu… My back, my legs, my neck… The pain was sharp at times – until the Tylenol kicked in – and now it’s become more of an all over dull radiating bone ache. This is the Zometa talking. Thank god I only have to take the bone strengthening meds once a month. Hopefully, I won’t have this kind of pain the next time around.
Hubby said to me tonight, “Be careful what you say.” As if all my marveling and questioning of how smoothly treatment has been going thus far was almost a challenge to the universe. And finally, the universe bestowed me with a difficult day.
But you know what this difficult day has done for me? It’s just made me want to fight even harder.
I will not allow myself to get knocked down by this cancer. I will not become a sick mom who burdens her child. I will not have my hopes and dreams dashed.
I will overcome this challenge.
Here’s to hoping that tomorrow is a better day. – T
