I am feeling rather well, considering that I just had chemo yesterday. However, I felt rather well last time at about this point in the cycle. If things go as they have, tomorrow will begin a slide downhill that will last late into the week.
And yes, if you're wondering, I did the 100% chemo dose. My gut tells me 80% would have been enough. My gut also tells me I can recover from 100%. And so, like the raised-christian doubters who baptize their kids "just in case," I went through with the entire prescribed ritual.
Hopefully I don't live to regret it. No, that's not what I mean to say. Hopefully I live to regret many many things. And then live on with the fortitude to make all the necessary reparations.
This quote doesn't exactly line up, but close enough: Like Jill Conner Browne says in her sweet and hilarious book, American Thighs: The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Preserving Your Assets: "Live like you've got all day tomorrow to apologize."
