Day 1

It Begins

Starting chemo and radiation therapy today for the next 5-6 weeks. The goal is to shrink the tumor to increase the chances for a successful operation.

The good news is that the chemo will be sort of like an IV drip throughout the week so if you see me in church or around the office with a fanny pack, it’s not some new fangled iDevice; it’s just the chemo.

The bad news is that while the radiation therapy involves gamma rays, there’s apparently zero chance that I’ll turn into something like the Hulk which would’ve made life … interesting.

On days like today, I’m reminded that Joy is a choice, not an outcome.
