Thanks for all the well wishes for my first day of chemo today, but it didn’t happen. Echocardiogram done, blood work done, saw the doctor and it all stopped there. Lefty is not healed enough to start chemo. If they start, the drugs will kill the cells it needs to heal and it will never heal. Here we go again – delay, delay, delay.

We stopped by and my surgeon checked the wound, which although still a little leaky, it is slowly healing and just needs more time. Poor Lefty, three surgeries in four weeks has certainly taken it’s toll. Anyways, nothing will change we just need to wait 2 weeks to get started, so we will.

On the way to the appointments this morning we heard the song which will be our anthem. An anthem is defined as “a rousing or uplifting song identified with a particular group, body, or cause” and every good cancer fight needs one. It’s called “Tough People Do” by Trace Adkins. (click on the title and it should play) The main message is Tough Times Don’t Last, Tough People Do, something I intend to prove true over and over again. Of course, I already have a pretty good start…
