Thought of the day

the routine is down. third time a charm. get up. deep breath. meditate. pack a bag. and off to Sloane Kettering for the chemo treatment. today I only packed a small bag. today I am not wearing my wig. today the thought of the day from Oprah: may the journey be as sweet as the destination. i’ve been calling it the journey since I was first diagnosed last fall. and the journey is sweet. and the car that picked us up to head to the east side had a sticker on the trunk: MALCOLM. my dad’s name. and today I will go back to the beach. today I will hug my kids. today is a good day.

  3. Beautifully done, “Soulsister.” I am at the beach as well and sending you positive vibes across the Atlantic waters that you may have an easy 3rd cycle, a clean scan and continue to do exactly what you’re doing. From one lympho-maniac to another, hugs, Anne
