Please hold DS in your healing palm. Please Keep her safe and comfortable and free from nausea during these treatments. Lord we ask that you bring people into her path that give her peace and love and laughter as she has brought these same gifts to so many here on this site. Be with MH as he walks beside her on this journey and give him peace and strength. Lord, we love this woman as we know you do. We ask this in your precious name. Amen

You are going to make it through this, I know it. I'm hoping that any sickness is only brief, and that between you and the chemo that cancer is gonna get AK47'ed so fast it won't know what hit it.

No one changes unless they want to. Not if you beg them. Not if you shame them. Not if you use reason, emotion, or tough love. There is only one thing that makes someone change: their own realization that they need to.

Hi DS – just thinking about you and MH – glad to hear it’s going ok and you are locked and loaded to tackle this.
Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, your behavior does.

I've unfortunately had a number of friends who've gone through this. The two things they all had in common, besides their illness, was an awe-inspiring level of courage and tremendously positive attitude.
You've got both in spades!
Sometimes our life experiences, even the tough ones, are really battle training grounds to give us the tools we need to overcome other challenges life throws at us. You've not only survived infidelity, you took the bull by the horns and dedicated your life to helping others who've gone through it as well.
I hope and pray for your speedy recovery, and I know that your selflessness and generosity has earned you an unfathomable amount of good karma and blessings.
If anyone's got this, you do.

You all are so awesome!!! I'm amazed at the love and time spent by you all on here...thank you so much!
I had my 1st treatment of my second round ( ) of chemo a week ago this past Friday. I have a private room with a nice view, MH has plenty of room to set up his laptop to work or entertain me and I have a private nurse that does all my vitals and administers all the drugs and fluids for my treatments. Overall...I couldn't ask for a better setting and care...I'm very lucky for sure!!
I was fine until Tuesday...I got sick for the first time and that ended up lasting for most of the evening. I called into work on Wednesday morning...I tried but after just walking down the hallway at home at 5:00am...I knew there was no way I would make it through the day at work. So, I stayed in bed and relaxed all day, which was AWESOME!!!!! Although I have ZERO idea how anyone can watch daytime TV and either not become a total imbecile or turn into a vegetable. God, what total trash on tv...no wonder so many women are lost in our country
On Thursday and Friday I was sick again...just one time and then I was fine. Went on my business at work. It's weird...getting sick is fast and done within a few minutes...there aren't any lingering feelings of nausea. At least for me that's how it's been. I have 2 anti-nausea medications but they cause constipation which I do NOT want to have happen again, so I'm waiting for the one anti-nausea medication that I know really works for me, I should be picking that up tomorrow
I started to lose my eyelashes today which was a grim reality of it all. I know I've based a lot of my posts about how I'll look...but until you're faced with changing physically, you just don't realize how much stock you put into who you are on a physical level.
Anyway...just thought I'd update and let you all know that I am so thankful for the continued support and love and prayers...you have made this shit journey a whole lot easier to take Thank you very, very much!!!!
AK47 THIS SHIT!!!

I think of you often throughout my day, DS. Sending you much strength and prayers. Wishing you so much peace and serenity as you AK47 that shit. P.S. You are so beautiful, inside and out. I know that must be tough, believe me I understand, but your beauty will shine through, it can't help but burst through.
