Dear Chemo...

Dear Chemo,

It's that time again, our special time, just you and me time.  We've met twice now, spent some miserable evenings with you, cried about you and maybe even cursed your name a few times.  After these two encounters I have a few questions for you, things I've been pondering this week leading up to our third visit.  I'd like to take the time now and share with you my deep inner thoughts and contemplations about what makes you tick Chemo and I'm hoping that you can shed some light on your complexities.

So here goes...

1.  Are you the jealous type?  I've noticed that a few of my true deep loves, such as peanut butter, chocolate and especially Coca-Cola are ALL on my not so likie list since we've been seeing each other.  Is it that you can't tolerate the fact that I love others more than you?  Really, the color green does not suit you well.  I would appreciate the return of my taste buds, thanks.

2.  Do you have OCD?  From what I've noticed since our first two meetings is that you have the tendencies to be extremely OCD in your schedule, like you haven't budged one single second of the day from your itinerary.  Monday-Wednesday you insist on presenting yourself as "the flu".  You are not the flu, why must you copy it's effects on a body?  Thursday -Saturday is even uglier.  Intestinal Distress, really??  It's one of my most least favorite things in the world, nausea, tummy troubles, not eating.  Chemo, I Like Food!!  Not cool, Chemo, not cool.  Sunday is a bipolar day, I guess you need to dabble in the mental health arena to round out your resume.  I'm happy, I'm sad, I'm energetic, I'm pooped.  Sunday is all over the place.  Maybe you need medication dear Chemo to deal with your OCD problem, just sayin'.

3.  Are your origins of a tropical nature, meaning what the heck do you have against the cold?  Have you had to drink lukewarm liquids for days on end Chemo?  Do you know what it's like to have pins and needles in your fingertips when ever you touch anything remotely cold?  Have you felt your throat on fire, gone hoarse because you drank water not quite the temperature of your liking?  I'm pretty sure you haven't or you wouldn't be torturing this hot natured gal so much.  We really need to talk about this effect you have on me, I really like Sonic ice, really like it a lot and I CAN"T HAVE IT!  It makes me grumpy to be hot, just ask anyone who knows me, the cooler the better for Becky.  I mean, I guess I won't complain too much, after Friday(refer back to your OCD question) I seem to have the ability to tolerate the cold again. 

I'm hoping that these few questions I have for you can be answered in a timely fashion.  We have oh so many more meetings, I wouldn't want our whole relationship to be clouded by the curiosities I have about you.  I do want to state one thing Mr. Chemo......  Thank you for giving me a second chance at life, a second chance at love, a second chance to be the best mom I can be.  You will be the gateway to Becky, part 2 and I Thank You for the bottom of my heart.

Yours Truly,


Each day to live....
