Worst Firsts


How Morbid no I think about there are people that leave their house and Gough again? A car accident and their life is taken like that. Yeah and they don't have a chance to say goodbye and they don't have a chance. Wants to do one last thing one. Last time I think about instead of thinking about all the people that have a better than me I take a minute to be grateful because are people to have it so much worse and the thing about it is when you like I got to you if you get it detected and diagnosed you are halfway through the battle because then you just treat it. The hardest part for me was finding out what was wrong right because you felt not well not relieve. That's the wrong word but it was almost relieved. Going through Chemo peace. Finally there was some answers and I was going to find comfort again. I wasn't gonNA feel so on car is why is my face doing this. As soon as the first round was over the itching had subsided. My wife started to go down. It was just a sense of like. Oh wait was actually lifted my hair right but like an actual the feeling of okay. At least we out what was wrong. Yes yeah which is say. Count your blessings. Because I'm telling you there are people that have it so much worse and just think about the positive thing about the pundits all you can and I hate the saying because I'm not like I'm a planner to but you really do have to take it day by day. An oncologist told me this quote and it stuck with me the entire journey some days. You step on pebbles some days you step on rocks but every step you take is one step closer closer to healing. Wow so instead of people saying like how you feeling a good dare better. There are no good or bad days. When you're battling cancer there's Rockin pebble days right so is is it a rock day? That's pretty bad if it's a pebbled it's like it's not great but it's manageable Ray. So that's how I just did it. Rock Day pebbled had how to do it for for about five months. Five months five months from June everyday everyday people would say and then my friends had text me and say Rock Day or Pebble de. Hey fingers crossed really. Yeah that's how we had to monitor And so does it. It shrinks the tumor. She don't physically get surgery. Yeah I think the only I had a biopsy to find out the cells were cancer. And but no the chemo actually shrunk. I could show you picture on my phone really really have a before. So it's still there but it's it's gone. It's gone it shrinks it to oblivion scar tissue you. If you fell on the on the ground yeah now are you serious So just can get rid of goods route. That's incredible that you can just do that with a medication. Yeah it gets rid of shrinks. It's so small that it just doesn't exist any I would say to my dad. Oh my gosh. My hair is falling out so quick eyelashes like my nails. My mouth sores and he would say if doing all that. Imagine what. It's doing into the tumor under the tumors. Like cars. All my God it is and then so what does it do Louis Breakdown you pee or poop it out or what. You're gonNA toilet as a tumor. It's just like you in the toilet like such an asshole tumor fucking go. Go somewhere to say never never land. I'm back to where you came from. My pregnant friends would come over and eat with me.
