Harry Potter vs. Voldemort

Tomorrow is the big day. First chemo treatment. I'm nervous, but at the same time energized and ready to go! I told Jason last night that I feel a bit like Harry Potter before a showdown with Voldemort. Harry's all big talk, and then when they meet, Voldemort can slap him so hard he crumples against a wall, not really comprehending what he's up against. That's what I keep wondering. Am I completely underestimating this thing? I feel really good right now, feel like I've done my research, heard all the possible side effects, made plans to try to handle what comes, but still don't have any idea what's coming. Because I feel good, it almost feels like I'm volunteering to get my ass kicked for no reason.

At this point, I just want to get started, as I think the anticipation is tough. Now, is it tougher than the treatment?... I guess we'll see. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

  5. Jill: You got hit in the back of your head by a train at age 4; your Dad broke your leg at about 6; you had your spleen removed at 16 and your tonsils taken out at 22. I was there with you through all that and if you want me to come down, you just have to make that call. But I know you and Jason and you'll be fine and you have a great support team with having Deb and Harvey there when you come home. I'll be worried to death until you call but meanwhile your Dad and I both send all our love and just look at the support you've gotten from your Blog. So many names I've recognized that I haven't heard in a long time. So tomorrow night we'll all be looking for an update again.We want to thank all of you for the encouragement you've given Jill & Jason...so we salute all the friends and family. As Barton said, it's faith, family and friends. All our love & prayers, Mom & Dad

  11. Jill, Jason, and Rory,
    Youhave so many people pulling, praying and cheering you on! An excellent support system. A lot of times that and the positive attitude you seem to be beaming with are in a lot of cases more important than the medicine itself. Take comfort in knowing it is in God's hands and stay focused on eachother. By the way, your hair is pretty fierce! You should have a few wigs styled the same way just colored differently.
    You could have bleached out Roxette hair, and some sassy red, some black would be pretty boss, and definitely some buxom brunette. You take care and know...you are already a survivor!!!!
