Someone asked me yesterday what the worst part of this whole experience has been. I am not sure I can really put words around that yet. As of now, I would say the first weekend when we found out and the excruciating wait over the weekend. As for side effects with my chemo, it changes each week. This week the mouth ulcers have been especially bad. I told someone yesterday that I feel like I have "chicken pox of the mouth" but without the itch. When I looked in my mouth this morning that is the thought that came to mind. I have a great mouth wash that usually helps a lot but for some reason this week the ulcers are laughing back at that wash. Oh well....I know this will pass soon.
A little story that should be in the category of "out of the mouth of babes...." My 5 year old neighbor came over yesterday and wanted to pull on my hair. So, I bent over and let her and she looked me straight in the face and said, "God answered my prayer because your hair is not going anywhere." I smiled and considered it a kiss from the Lord. I have my hair and he answered her prayer.
