Not to get to deep into specifics, but I just had a good 10 minute crying freakout because my body is not behaving the way it's supposed to.

Two and a half more weeks. Grind it out.

You know, I am beginning to hate these blog things. Just lost a bunch of *exquisite* text because I forgot to type in the wiggly word to verify my post. Arrgh!

So, to summarize, I had all the faith in the world that my body could do anything. No major illnesses, no surgery, no hospitals, until I was diagnosed with Stage 3b colo-rectal cancer last spring. Fast forward to November and I was struggling to get healthy enough to get my 10th (of a prescribed 12) FOLFOX treatments. And after the third "rejection" notice I got quite sad about things.

My father has a saying that I have repeated to myself on numerous occasions when I needed something to hang on to: "a person can stand on his head in a bucket of shit for 2 1/2 weeks if he has to." I've never had to go through anything like what you're going through, but hopefully this stupid quote will help a tiny bit. Hang in there.

Hey Ed--Thanks for checking in. I've perused your site at length and will definitely refer back to it as I get deeper into treatment.

Tricia--Now if that isn't a Navy quote, I don't know what is. I actually got a card from a friend recently with the Churchill quote "If you're going through hell, keep going." Too long for a tattoo, unfortunately. ;)
