Feeling Radiant

It's Christmas Eve, the day after Chemo #1, and I feel warm to my own touch, like I'm a little sunburned, but do not have a fever..strange sensation. Had trouble sleeping but I have never been one to fret about getting my beauty sleep. I tend to feel more productive with less sleep on occasion. Still drinking tons of water to flush out the toxins but otherwise I feel pretty good. I have been receiving advice to make sure that I visualize the meds attacking the cancer cells and after my annual viewing of the "Wizard of Oz", I can't keep the Alphaba melting scene out of my head. "You cursed brat! Look what you've done" All this water is certainly having an affect on the "wicked witch" cancer cells; no, my cancer cells are not feminine it just seems to work best for the analogy.


  1. Paul,

    Our thoughts are with you and your family this Christmas. Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Have the Merriest Christmas!

  2. Hey Paul, It's your friend Kamila, in CA reachin out to an old and dear pal who likes a good corned beef sandwich and peanut coleslaw. The Tam O'shantern is still there! I'm training out of a nice place in Agoura, a bit out of the madding LA jungle, but close enough to get a little city vibe once in a while. Sounds like you have a big challenge in your life. I'm praying for you baby, whatever works is good, do it all! I'm on the road for the next week - going to Germany, my second home. I'll catch up on your blog when I get home. Love, Mila

  3. Hope you had a great Christmas! Chris and I have been thinking of you and praying for you, Laurie, and the kids a lot. Although you are facing the most difficult challenge of your life, it sounds like you are tackling it with everything in your power. Knowledge, fight, belief, and faith are your best weapons to get you through this, and it doesn't sound like you're lacking in any of those areas.

    Take care Paul,and keep us posted.

    LY, Kim
