Not in spirit, not in soul. Just body.

This part of chemo I had forgotten. A bone numbing fatigue that even a consummate overcomer such as myself cannot override.

It is difficult to be patient. My mental energy remains exultingly high. I have plans, big plans. And much to accomplish.

In three weeks I shall have my first scan and will know better whether this hit on my physical self has been for naught. Of course I remain exceedingly hopeful that my cancer is also struggling. And if that is the case, well, then I can continue to justify this reduction in stamina.

I have an agenda. A clear agenda that keeps me incredibly focused. Tolerant of discomfort. Stubborn and steadfast. Eyes on the prize. Eyes on tomorrow.

    I have been following you for years. I ,too, am stage 4 lung but egfr presently on tagrisso. Radiation 2 yrs ago really zapped my energy and traditional acupuncture got my energy back. Might be worth considering. Call Jack Daniel at 410-948-6615. (love the name, huh?) He’s in Columbia, Md. but likely can recommend someone in Boston. He’s great and it’s the real deal and it works well with chemo.

  9. Happy new yea Linnea

  12. Well, all of this just sucks but I am always amazed by the strength of will that you continue to show. As others have said “eyes on the prize”, but sometimes it is okay to just rest. Surrounding you with love.
