The Halfway Point Baby!

This is on a plaque in the Cancer Center's waiting room. It's inspiring to me so I thought I would share it with all of you.


Does anyone know what day it is?

Huh?

Anyone?

It's the half way point baby! I am half way done with my treatment.

WOO HOO!!

These last few weeks have sucked. Majorly sucked! But I made it. It has not been an easy process. However, I knew that it wouldn't be. I knew that this was going to be the hardest battle I have ever had to fight.

I knew that I would be miserable. I knew that I would be tired. Honestly, the way that I am feeling is actually better than what I thought it would be.

I'm still angry. So very angry with cancer. I think that is going to take some time to get over. But I think given the circumstances I am entitled to being a little angry. Right?

One good thing has come out of these stupid treatments.

More blogging time! Lots more blogging time! Thank heavens for laptops!!

Thank you all for your comment love. You have no idea how much your wonderful comments mean to me. Some days during my treatment, if I am to sick to really write about anything I go through and read your comments. I know, I know, kind of dorky, but they really do make me feel better.

Since today is the halfway point, feel free to drink a glass of wine for me. If I could, I would!




Every day Kyler picks out a stuffed animal for me to bring to treatments. This day he picked out piggy. The last few days it has been this HUGE stuffed Lightning McQueen. It makes a nice pillow though! Thank you Kyler.

Halfway there...what a great milestone! So sweet of your little man to offer Lightning McQueen as your daily stuffed animal. If he is anything like my guy that is his favorite one.
Praying for you!

Yeah! Well done on getting 1/2 way there. I will definitely half a glass of wine for you! Have a great weekend!

The White House said...

Hang in there, girl. It is true that God will renew your strength. I would love to have a glass of wine on your behalf, but since I am pregnant, we are going to have to leave it up to some of the other lushes out there to have one for each of us!

The Mom said...

Happy Halfway Heather!!

I would feel the VERY SAME way if I were you, hang in there sweetheart!

Deborah said...

Hey girl - I'm so proud of you. You're doing great! And you're half way through - you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Hang in there and remember that very soon all this will be over. Be strong - you can do this!

XOXO

McMommy said...

Halfway is awesome!! High-five, honey!!!! You CAN DO IT!!

amanda said...

Someone once told my mom that cancer is the "love disease" (believe me, I DO NOT call it that) but he was a survivor and said it made him realize how much love is in the world. So hopefully you feel the love and support. I'm glad you are halfway done.

andreawilliams said...

congrats on the ass kicking! WAHOO! you are half way done. hopefully the second half will go by super fast.

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Half done!!!!!! Before you know it will be 3/4 done and then ALL DONE. You are going to kick cancer's butt :)

John Deere Mom said...

You are some kind of strong. You look great in the pic. Here's hoping the second half goes even faster than the first. And you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Give cancer a big kick in the ass from me.

Julia said...

Congrats on the halfway point. May God continue to give you the strength to "run and not grow weary"

You have a right to be angry - hash it out I think that letting out the anger is good for you. On the good note of being halfway I am so glad that this is almost over the hard part for you. Hang in there we are thinking of you.
