Drip, Drip, Tick, Tock. . .
Has anyone every tried a sunless tanner or bronzer?  First you prep your skin and then apply the lotion.  After a few minutes you can't help but check to see if you noticed a difference.  Even though the package says two hours or over night, you keep checking every so often to see if you are tan yet.  You never really notice too much of difference so you go to  bed or forget about it.  All of sudden, the next time you are in the mirror, you notice the new bronze you (or the "new Jan Brady" - for you Julie D.). 

Today was my first chemo treatment.  I watched the endless drip after drip of the many bags that were hooked up to my catheter.  Was that a nose sniffle?  Do I feel a headache coming on? I tired or is that just the side effect of not sleeping so well last night?  Are the side effects starting?  So far I feel great (4:24 p.m.).  The clock keeps ticking and I feeling great.  According to my wiser and experienced cousins, the side effects might pop up tomorrow.  According to the lovely woman receiving treatment that I was sitting next too, she hasn't been sick a single day and she's been in treatment since last October.  It is like waiting for the tan to show up.  Maybe the second application will do the trick.  Or maybe, I'll continue being blessed.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
