What CANCER really does to people
Eric has been dealing with quite a bit, besides his cancer. He saw his doctor earlier in February and was told that he wanted him to start a new Chemo. One dose a week for eight weeks. Has he chose to show up to the treatments? Well this is the 4th week and no he hasn't. He is upset at his doctor for not getting back to him, returning his emails or phone calls. I agree with him on this the doctor is very slow.
Eric wanted to get another CT-Scan to see the progress of his cancer. The doctor, from what Eric tells me, says that he received one in January, and that they only do them every three months. Well. Eric an I got into a bit of a disagreement. I told him that the doctor may be a bit upset with him since he is not showing up to his treatments. How can you agree to something, and then just not canceling..just not show..And then you ask for a CT-scan to see the obvious.
I told him that these are time slots that other Chemo patients could be slotted for.
Eric is talking to me one day and mad at me the next. I have to admit I am feeling the same way. He has been going 100miles per hour, since the move from the house. Complaining that he is feeling tired and run down. I tell him to take a break, but do you think he listens? NO!!
This blog was set up and maintained my me for almost a year. It was originally set up to keep in touch with our family and close friends while we were in Shanghai. It has evolved into something more than that. Eric now creates posts since I began to drop back in October. It wasn't until now that I decided to post again.
To the party that decided to judge me, Unless you have full access into our private lives, and see the true picture of things, please refrain from making such hateful comments.
Our personal life unfortunately became part of this blog the day we create it. As far as mentioning anger, yes, he is angry. Angry at me, the doctors, the cancer, and anyone else that end up in the path that he is taking.
Eric is very powerful in the sense that he can do anything that he puts his mind to. A quality about him I love dearly. No matter how upset we get each other, I am still there supporting, and cheering him on.
