It's a Record!

The last day that I had any form of chocolate was on January 21, 2006. It was two days after my birthday and Husband and I went out to eat. Knowing that this was my last taste of chocolate, we went all out and ordered for dessert a warm fudge brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, covered in hot fudge sauce and Cool Whip. Yum!

It's now three months later and I still haven't had any chocolate. I don't count the brownie that I licked because I didn't actually ingest any of it...

I just realized how long it has been since I last posted anything. Life seems to have taken us all on a rollercoaster during the past few weeks. Good news, bad news, even worse news, the worst news imaginable, a "glimmer-of-hope" news, better news, and on and on and on...

Up and down, up and down. It's enough to make me sick.

This whole cancer situation has had me thinking about how much I hate it when people say, "Life isn't fair." Yeah, I know that, but why is it so completely unfair to certain people? Why do some people get handed such crap to deal with and obstacle after obstacle to face, when others seem to just skate by in life?

I've got some theories, but none that are well-thought out enough to put into writing.

No Hope

The doctors say there is no hope. The only other option is a stem cell transplant. So doesn't that mean that there still is some hope?

It's Back

The cancer is back. I don't understand how this could be happening. Didn't we just get the good news only a few short weeks ago that there were no signs of cancer? Didn't the doctor just tell her that she would never get cancer again in her lifetime? How could it have returned so fast?

I don't understand.
