Yes, here it is the longest day of the year. I am thinking that many of us have experienced some days that have seemed even longer. The longest days for me are the ones spent waiting for test results. When the phone rings there is a sense of wanting to know and not wanting to know both at the same time. Life must have been so different for ill people many years ago. There were no tests and many of the current procedures had not yet been developed. As a result, many became more ill and even passed away at relatively young ages. I declined having an MRI this week. I want to have the holidays free of 'waiting stress'. I know I have not jeopardized my health in doing this. I am still coping with the reaction I had to the dye from the CT scan. I think putting my aching, itchy body in that machine would have been too much for me anyway. I will start the New year with a test. I feel that it will be fine and if something unexpected in discovered I will consider myself fortunate.
I hope that all of us and our loved ones will start the new year as healthy as possible.
My last treatment of chemo is New Years Eve. I'm hoping that the new year will bring better days. I've yet to go through the longest day or night. I can only pray that after this treatment is over I can continue with my life as normal as possible and that this cancer will never find it's way to my body again.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone and good luck to you Tiara!
