I Will Survive!

Tomorrow I visit the oncologist to get all the details about starting my chemotherapy treatments. Actually, I have found out that what I will be getting is pretty much just plutonium, isn't that what they make bombs out of? So, I have my list of questions, such as "Will I explode?" "How long before my hair falls out?" "When can we have sex again?" "How many medications will you give me to forget all the crap that's happening to my body?" "Does this qualify for medicinal pot?" "When can we have sex again?" Oh, yea, asked that one already.

Well, I am pumped up and ready to kick some cancer ass! To everyone out in blogland I have three words: "I Will Survive!" However, I am not so certain they have been totally honest about all the side effects...

As a cervical cancer survivor, let me just say this....

You will survive.
You will overcome.
You will kick cancer's ass.
You will be stronger.
You will be wiser.

My thoughts are with you love, stay fierce.

Somehow, 'm glad you were diagnosed early Brenda.

While chemotherapy is no fun ride for anyone, your "I will survive" attitude is applaudable and will make a huge, positive difference in how you perceive your treatment.

Good luck. You know, I have a friend who came through grade 4 bowel cancer and another with breast cancer ... attitude is so much.

Take care and stay strong.
