Nausea Monster

The nausea monster is really rearing its ugly head, as are the muscle cramps. In other words, the relentless chemo miseries have settled in for the duration. When the toxic waste is being pumped 24/hrs/day for 5 days straight, I guess that is to be expected.

I am so thankful this is the last of the regular treatment cycles. It was so hard to bring Kevin back on Tuesday, knowing what he would have to endure. I was watching his body and mind trying to cope as the amount of poison being pumped into his system increased with each hour that passed. I honestly don't know how he does it. If you have good health, treasure it and do all in your power to ensure you maintain it. Be kind to your mind and body and nurture and care for both! Embrace life and all that it entails.

This morning I had to go to Willmar for a meeting and some client visits. The landscape was so beautiful with the new white snow covering the ground and lying softly on all of the tree and shrub branches. The seasons may be confused as to which one is supposed to be dominant right now, but you do have to enjoy beautiful scenery when you see it--no matter what the season! Bear in mind that when life offers you something special in the course of the day, savor the moment since you will never have it back again!
