The Trick to Maintaining
I remember when we stopped chemotherapy for my youngest son's cancer. He did not have maintenance treatment, so done was done, and in some ways it was absolutely torture. I remember one of my friends, someone who does not have children, saying to me when she heard he was off treatment, "Oh, my God, you must be a basket case. How can you stand the waiting?" It was such a contrast from everyone else, who kept treating it like a celebration. I am tolerating the wait better this time around, more preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. Also taking real stock in things and exploring my options going forward. One foot in front of the other.
