Today is my big 40th birthday. Maybe 4 months ago this would have meant something, but cancer has a funny way of putting things into perspective. We had a quiet day and night at home. Karen’s sister and brother-in-law were awesome enough to take the boys for a few hours. Karen and I got a nice dinner and a chance to really express how the last 3 weeks beat us down. It was time for that long overdue conversation, needless to say there were plenty of tears. Right now I am feeling pretty good and I told Karen there was no stopping me. I talked the doctors into getting me off 1 of the drugs they sent me home with. I was having lots of side effects and it was delaying my healing. Every few hours I feel a little better and my strength is coming back quicker than I thought. Praise God!
Beware everyone this 40 year old is coming back physically and mentally stronger than before!
