The irony of it all

Having brain cancer is not fun. I'm sure you already guessed that :-). Chemo is not fun either. Chemo makes me tired. The irony is that which makes me so tired now is meant to help me get better. I am taking Temodar in the tablet form at home. I am on a 3 weeks on/ 1 week off schedule. I was explained that this chemo is cumulative and that I would probably feel pretty tired towards weeks 2 and 3. Another irony: I am blessed that I don't suffer from the other common side effect: nausea. Life is full of delicious ironies. The latest one: although I have been "officially shagged" (Australian for really exhausted) this week, I am so excited about our trip down under next week, that I got up super early because I couldn't sleep. I'll have to nap later. The best irony of all? The fact that Jesus Christ died for my sins, despite me being a sinner and not doing anything to deserve His salvation. I love that. And I love that this is a promise with a guarantee :-))

Have a great week!!
