Let’s resume Ass-Kicking!

This morning, I went for an almost 5 mile-walk with JCW and her dog. It looked like it might rain, but we both agreed that a little water wasn’t going to keep us from training – she’s on the team that will walk with me in August. Not only did it not rain, but when I got home, I got a phone call that parted one of the dark clouds over my head: the PET scan was clear, the cancer did not spread, all systems go for chemo on Friday morning.

I gotta be honest. The last 5 days have been horrible. Going from stage 1 to stage 3 was harsh, but the thought that is might be even worse was just unbearable. So when Nurse G. called me and said it was all clear, I think I took a deep breath for the first time in 5 days. I madly texted and called everyone. I’m still in for a rough 6 months, but I am ready, and now I feel like I am in fighting spirit again.

Let the Ass-kicking resume!
