Troubles in the Rear View Mirror

5 more -- that's all of the chemo cycles VB has in front of him, with #5 in the countdown starting on Tuesday. So many behind, so few ahead; the horizon seems to get brighter with each passing day.

The downside is that it brings out my impatience -- for I do not do well with transition. I fight hard not to read the last page of a book first, and as I near the end I find myself skipping words to get there faster. Just be done already, dammit!

I am trying not to let that part of me come out right now. There is still much work to be done. But talking about a normal life is incredibly addictive, particularly when you don't have one.

This is one addiction that it's fine to indulge in. Here's to Day 0, when there are zero cycles left. May it come soon and uneventfully. Yes, I'm knocking on wood as I type that.
