Month 2 in Chemo and what to expect

Month 2 in Chemo and what to expect

Expectations have started to settle in and new routines have been discovered. The amazing thing is we discovered that we do not have to travel this road alone. We have an amazing family, friends, and strength in God. We have also discovered a larger than life support system with all those people across the country and overseas through the power of the internet. This has made this new transition so much easier for me and Suzy.

Strength is starting to come back from 2 surgeries and now we can start to focus mainly on the chemo treatment and getting better. We would love to thank all of those that have leant their prayers and support to us that have helped in the recovery process. During the chemo weeks my strength is worn. However it seems as soon as the treatment is over my strength starts to come back and by 2 days later I feel like I can take on the world.
Don't fear change,change fear

What I am digging a lot is the deep dark depression that once seemed like it had the power to take over my life has subsided am very lucky to have some terrific people on the sidelines that have become players in the game pointed me in the right direction. They reminded me that I must change my thoughts, find a new source for my thoughts, and I must replace those thoughts. I must not be afraid to ask God for strength and to give myself to him to change and guide. When these things are followed the deep dark places are no longer feared. This was the largest obstacle that I have faced to date and the scariest place I have ever been to in my life. The reason that it has been so is it is a road that is traveled alone and a road that does not need to be traveled alone.

Communication between doctors and ourselves has increased and it is a wonderful thing that we are on the same page. We are dealing with highly intelligent people and they answer questions that are asked. However the questions asked are by people like me that have a little trouble with the English language that leaves ambiguity with the intent of the question. Discover the right questions and you will discover the right answers. If you have concerns over confirmation of any answer seek clarity and ask what does that mean. I guarantee if you do not ask for clarity you will start thinking the wrong way as confusion sneaks into your life. This confusion brings doubt and doubt brings negative thoughts that stop progress.

What I am discovering is this disease that we are fighting isn’t the problem. What is being described here can form in life by itself without any disease other than the disease of any negative thoughts that provide a stumbling block on your life moving forward. For me it was brought out into the light by this disease we are fighting. Again I am extremely lucky to have a great wife by my side, my children, and grandchild that are all in with me and forcing me to do the right thing. Friends that we never knew are there have marched into our lives and given renewed strength. I hope and pray that they know they have touched us and me in ways that are enormous.

I have made many good solid friendships in The Plumbing Zone and LinkedIn and through this blog that have changed my life and my thought process for the better leading too tolerance and acceptance. Another fantastic source of healing and power is The Shore Church and the wonderful people that share their life with others. There are many wonderful caring people at The Shore that give quickly to you without reservation or expectation. Another thing I am discovering is the impact each and every individual can have on other people without ever understanding or knowing that this impact has been made.
