LOL Jim, love that.
Each day is a fight for me. Not an ordinary fight, but a fight for life. My New Year's resolution is simply for me live life to the fullest, and succeed in all that I can do whilst I not only battle chemotherapy, but also take care of my grandmother with Alheimers.
One of my saddest moments in my life was sitting in the room, waiting for my turn to recieve radiation and next to me is a child, not even 9 years old with no hair. Its clear what they have. Its clear we are in the same battle. It is so sad. No child or adult should have to suffer this. Especially the children. I wish I could take away the pain, side effects, sorror, illnesses from these precious children. I do the fundraisers, in hopes that one day there will be a cure, but not for me, for the children. They are the world, the future of the world.
I just found out today, I will be undergoing another battle, and more than likely will be on medication for my life. It seems that my rare autoimmune disease turned to attack my thyroid and glands. It also was noticed I am in the 1% people who have brain radiation complications. I currently am undergoing much testing to diagnose exactly what it is for the best treatment.
Another resolution, as if that isnt enough, is for me to continue my efforts of support to our soldiers, familes, and vets through the loving memory of my dear friend and his K9 partner that I grew up with. Whenever I see a soldier or vet, I stop and thank them. The vets, being elder, are usually really touched and will talk your ear off. I look at it as they are lonely, they are happy someone is taking the time of the day to show they care, and I listen. Yesterday, I met a vet who served and survived not one, but four tours of duty in 'Nam.
