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.
