3/1 Party Is Delayed

I've thought and thought and thought and thought about this, discussed it with my Niece, and have decided to delay (NOT cancel) the party to celebrate the closing of this chapter with my fight against Big Bertha.  I just don't have the energy to enjoy a party right now.  I know I could get a lot of help preparing and pulling it off....but I just don't have the energy for this sort of event.  WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!  (....imagine me yelling and stomping my feet!)

I'm feeling MUCH better during the day now, which is SUPER FANTASTIC!  I actually have moments when I feel like my old self and it is W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L!  But at night I am still struggling.  And if I am able to seize a moment and go hiking or something, I'm then in bed for 3+ hours recovering from it.  AGH!  It's all worth it to get rid of this beast that has invaded my body, but I now have a whole new respect for cancer fatigue.  It is not fun.  I've joined a bunch of NHL facebook and email groups which tell me that this is par for the course.  EVERYBODY goes through what I am going through.  EVERYBODY.  Some recover from it shortly after their treatment, some are still struggling with it years later.  I am doing everything within my power to recover from it as soon as possible.  

Maybe when Spring arrives and is in full bloom, I'll be feeling like myself again and we'll be able to celebrate!  

To my ever faithful Warriors:  You have all helped me keep my head high during this battle and I will be forever grateful!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!!  THANK YOU!!!  This is just a little delay, not a cancellation!  We *WILL* party!  

In the meantime, I will be taking it one baby step at a time to get my strength and endurance back!  Grrrrrrrrrr.....

I've totally got this...
