I Just Realized

I used to breeze through my chemo treatments feeling that I was getting off easy.  Slowly, very subtly, but without question I am increasingly weaker, tired, and easily out of breath.  I had completely forgotten about the, “brink of death” part of chemotherapy.  I’ve seen it in the past, where chemo seemed to bring a patient to that point, to then be rescued and hopefully cured.  I imagine this chemo journey I’m on could end at that brink.  At work, I told my boss about my realization.  I told him that if I am on the road to the brink, I suspect I will need to modify my work schedule, and if I actually reach the brink of death, I may only be able to work half days.
