Chemo Today

Just got back from a chemo treatment. Everything went as per normal.

As usual ... I watch DVDs on my player. My good friend Arlene, a fellow breast cancer survivor borrowed me the first season of 24 on DVD. I think I got through one of six DVDs. My husband watches it regularly but I could never quite get into it until today. Now that I've seen a few shows in a row ... I think I'm hooked.

Yesterday I was visiting some other blogs and one lady posted this You Tube video ... it's entitled .... Metastatic Breast Cancer: Stories of Trials, Perseverance, and Hope.

We are AVID watchers of 24 and have watched every episode since the very first year..... I think 7 now.... We do not even answer the phone when Jack is saving the world!


Thinking of you girl..... and praying

Oh Daria. Thank you so much for posting that video. It was so uplifting. I'm glad your chemo went off without a hitch today!

Blessings to you!!

Hi Daria

I'm glad to hear that everything went well with chemo today. Thanks for the comment on my blog. It's always nice to hear from you. I'm going to add your blog to my sidebar.

I'd watch the video, but I don't have sounds on my computer, plus I'm a bit of a neophyte with computer media.

Thinking of you, and wishing you well.

What a great video! That is totally awesome!

Glad that chemo went well, though I am trying to reconcile in my mind watching gratuitous violence (my thoughts on 24) while receiving chemo! Next you'll be watching Dawg the Bounty Hunter for heaven's sake!

I almost came to the Cross to visit you during chemo, but then...I got lazy! Maybe next time!

I've watched 24 since the beginning, too!!! Loved the video! Kind of put a lump in my throat. This breast cancer thing is just the pits for so many, isn't it?????

Glad your chemo went ok today! Praying for you!

I am glad you are doing okay after your chemo today. Try to take it easy for the next few days.
Thank you for the video. There are days we need to listen to others going through this so we feel not quite so alone. I hope you don't mind but I am going to post it later on my blog and Facebook as well.
Take Care :)

Jill go right ahead ... I think we are helping others by posting that video over and over.

Hi Daria, what a beautiful video, thank you.

As for 24... we started watching it this past Christmas - blew through season 1 in a weekend, and have now just finished season 5 (not easy while watching season 7 on a weekly basis). We're waiting for 7 to end so we can blast through season 6. What a great show!

Take care... Beth.

Thanks for the video. It helped this morning. I woke up crying. I miss my Sassy so much. Thank you for helping make it just a bit easier.
