First day of New Year in good spirits for big fight

Yesterday was my first day of chemotherapy and the first day my daily pills went up from 15 per day to about 28. Not counting Tuesdays when it’s 40. But none of that mattered this morning. Although I didn’t feel that great, after I showered and dressed for a relaxing day at home I was feeling very cheerful and in good spirits. It’s a feeling I hope will last throughout this ordeal.

When I last told you about my health situation last time I let you in on the entire secret. Yea, I’ve talked about my health on and off for years, but have been opening up more. My hope is to help someone else who may be going through the same thing. Not by providing a bunch of information, but just to know someone else is going through the same thing. And, I think it’s therapeutic to get it out. Boy, was I happy that I’m in good spirits and can share that with you. Just don’t be surprised when I sometimes don’t feel well.

I was feeling so good that I took these photos:

It started off as just a “hello, good morning” pic.

Then I thought, “This is fun, I should take some more.”

But I couldn’t quite figure out the peace sign thing. The first one seemed too nerdy and the second one is all rapper sounding with a silly smile. SMH

The “I love you” sign just went all horribly wrong! The first one looks like “duh!” And it doesn’t even say “I love you” in the correct direction.

Three more crazy shots still trying to get it right!

Finally, I’m saying “I love you” properly. I do love you – my wonderful readers.

Have you ever been to Hawaii? Then you know this, in English, is “hang loose.”

The only other thing I could think of was a kiss good-bye. Mahwah!
