D169: KEEP BELIEVING IN YOUR DREAMS.

A quick one on my way to hospital to say Thank You for your love & support for me to hug Oprah. As much as my soul wants to go, my body says now is not the time.

There is still opportunities to make this dream comes true. It’s made my heart smiles to receive hugs around the world.

I also want to give shout out to Julie Kirk and Christine Lewis for their kindness in offering me Oprah’s ticket.

I thank you and I love you.

D168: BEAUTIFUL MESSAGE FROM A CARER – Thank you Julie

Julie was kind enough to do hospital run for radiation today. I was unwell and had to stay back after radiation. My quick trip becomes a long one. I had to top myself up with more anti nausea and pain killers. Adam, my lovely nurse, sat me on a recliners chair for a breather as I popped my pills. Poor Adam and Julie, witnessed tears streaming down my face. I said to him,”I didn’t even know why I’m crying.” I wish I could say it’s that time of the month but no more for me since chemo haha. I made a mistake on doing an epsom bath today. Bad idea if your skin is already breaking down. Dang, it was burning pain. If I was in a console game, that would have taken out my life charge. My body probably exhausted from the whole ordeal and dealing with intense pain in the last few weeks. The plan is to up my painkiller regularly. Sometimes, we can’t be strong and it’s okay. I still left that chair with a big smile. Pain will never steal me away from my laughter πŸ™‚

Back to the point, I want to give a big shout out to amazing carers out there. You are the strength of our journey. Behind every cancer patient, there is an immense love from a carer that keep us going. It is not easy being in this journey. So, be kind to yourself too.

To all the carers out there, know that you are loved. Don’t hesitate to reach out and use your support network. Don’t feel guilty to take time out to recharge if you need to. It is very important for each and everyone of us to pay attention to our happiness level. There is nothing wrong to make time for yourself to do things that make you happy. Your life is not at halt when cancer strikes.

You become a more loving, kind, generous, compassionate person when you are happier.

You probably heard it many times. Yet, it isn’t until we experienced it that we understand.

My wish is for you to find the happiness within. The day, you’re finally home in the heart of love.

D167 : NEVER GIVE UP ON HOPE – Jenny

Jenny picked me up on Monday after 6 days in hospital. I’m on my hardest bump of my treatment with combo of chemo and radiation. At least, I’m almost done with my 5 weeks radiation. I’ve been warned the peak of radiation effect will come at the end. It has been the most pain I’ve experienced since I started chemo. My radio oncologist, the lovely Julie Chu, said I’m the rare few who gets severe side effect. It’s bad because it’s in sensitive area. I remember she said my radiation is only on medium 40 gray. I can’t imagine those who have to do on high radiation. I pray for you. Hang in there. One day, we will look back and it will be our past.

I was discharged with goodie bag filled with strong pain killers. I’ve never taken so much pain killer and breakthrough in my life. I have to say it was confronting for me. The doc advises that I need to manage my pain and get on top of it. It takes a while to accept for me but at times we have to do what needs to be done to push through this.

My dietitian won’t be happy but I’ve been losing more weight. Sorry Lauren πŸ™ So, if today you can eat, what a blessing day it is πŸ™‚

Please send me healing vibes that I won’t get any infection in between chemo again. Especially, with my skin breaking down and vulnerable to infection.
