On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

Just one of those days November 27, 2012

Today really seemed like it would be one of those days.  My hands and feet are really bad today, it’s my first day back to work after the holiday and I had three meetings scheduled, Mike had a root canal, we are in the throes of a potty training war with Ryan, and its snowing.  Ugh.


My hand and foot syndrome, courtesy of Xeloda. For reference, the center of my palm is what color my hands normally are.

But as one of my coworkers used to remind me, it could always be worse.  This morning I was thinking of the new Train song “50 Ways to Say Goodbye.”  (Read the lyrics here, they are pretty funny.)  The lead singer says he wouldn’t admit that his girlfriend left him and instead make up lies about her like:


She was caught in a mudslide
Eaten by a lion
Got run over by a crappy purple Scion


I have not yet seen a mudslide or “crappy purple  Scion”.  I also haven’t been eaten by a lion.  So maybe my day isn’t so bad…

    Perhaps if the crappy purple Scion comes along, you should preemptively make friends with “Harold and the Purple Crayon”. 🙂

    Read the lyrics to the song – my absolute favorite line in a song right now “how could you leave me on Yom Kippur?”

    Sorry to hear you had a tough day 😦 . Hopefully tomorrow will be better…

  5. (As Dory says) Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.

    I’m sorry your hands and feet bother you so much that sucks. But you still have your awesome highlights and (most) of your energy.

    And I know how frustrating the potty training is. Just know your fighting the good fight. Sooner than you think you’ll look back and realize you’ll never have to change another diaper again and smile with glee. 🙂
