On my way to chemo today for the beginning of Round 7. It sounds like a boxing match and really, it is one.
My bff Jennifer Voisin Murray is picking me up. We go all the way back to junior high.
We are stopping for breakfast on the way. Hey, if I gotta do this, I might as well enjoy my friend and eat a ham and cheese omelette on the way!
Theo wanted me to take him to school this morning. I explained that I couldn’t; that Jennifer was picking me up as I had to go to the doctor’s today to get medicine. He said, “But I want to be with you tonight.” He knows that chemo often means I am down for the count for the rest of the day, often in the guest bedroom because I feel so horrible.
That’s a chemo translation from the world of a five-year-old.
I promised him that we will be together this evening, and I will make good on that promise.
