Sweet Baby, Sour Cancer

My journey through cancer and pregnancy, twice.

Twas the night before chemo and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse

As I lay wide awake, thinking in fear,

That the end of feeling good will soon be near.

But side effects screw them, 
They won’t hurt the baby or me,

We are stronger than them, 

They won’t touch us you will see. 
Tomorrow is treatment three out of four,

I am more than halfway done before I can run out the Farber’s door.

Then a few weeks and the best part is to come😄
The bun in the oven- I hope I don’t pop before my timer is done.

My road is long and I am just at the beginning, 

But I can assure you, I will live and I am already winning!

As I lay here awake in this uneasy chemo spell I am under, 

I will find try to find peace in my heart and drift off into slumber.

Night Night.

    I have a feeling that this will be your new
    “Twas the night before Christmas ”
    While your little one ,all snug in her/his bed-
    You’ll have visions of this “Jodi version” dancing in your head.

    But you heard the doctor exclaim ,as he walked out the door,
    “Merry Christmas to all , and your cancer no more “😍
