Chemo – Day One

You are all of course not surprised that I had Steve take my picture in the treatment room…  for “posterity” he says to the ladies across the way.  But really I had to share the smile on my face — after the nurse had a tough time with these incredibly strong VEINS of mine…. and had to re-launch the needle —  (a few times – third time is a charm – right?!) and then ripping that bandage off my slightly hairy arms just was nasty pain…..  not that I am complainer….. 🙂

Yes – I have the Optimist Creed framed on a shelf (a gift from Stephanie Haberkorn back in my day as a Relay specialist covering 3 counties in Northeast Colorado – I needed it back then too!).  I subscribe to Jon Gordon’s Energy Bus emails giving a positive outlook daily and I truly love the Energy Bus and all of Jon’s books!  I believe in motivation, positive thinking, visualization and that winning is 70% mental and 30% physical — in some cases 100% mental!  🙂

And yes that maybe a grey hair, not that I had any before I discovered this cancer….  so I am blaming cancer…  but at 46 with no grey hair, no coloring ever in my life — I am so blessed!  🙂

SO here I am – Day 1 of my 4 month trek…..

Me with my Ipad, my blackberry, and my USAT championship shirt  🙂  at Doc Mullally’s office

Another war wound…  I have a nice picture of the “wound” from the CT guided biopsy too — from July 4th weekend on the boat.  🙂
