“Here I Go Again”

I was just listening the 80’s song…Here I Go Again by Whitesnake (nice rockin hair)…It starts out, “I don’t know where I’m going, but I sure know where I’ve been.” This chemo ground is not new in some ways and in other ways will be completely different.  Does knowing about childbirth make it easier the second time, or do you just dread it more because you really know what it is?  The song diverges from my path when it gets to the lyrics “here I go again on my own, going down the only path I’ve ever known.” I am not alone, so it should be “here we go again together,” but clearly that doesn’t rhyme as well.   It’s a lonely trail going by yourself, but I have family, friends, and faith traveling along with me.   Today when I walked into the chemo room, all my favorite nurses were there and a few old-timers too.  My friend Izzie has been getting chemo there since 2012.  One friend called, another brought me flowers, and another sent pictures of a bunch of my teacher friends waving “hi.” I never felt alone.  I told someone that I feel like I have 10,000 hands holding me up and carrying me as I start back in chemotherapy.  I couldn’t do it without YOU! (yes YOU!)
