I am just reaching the end of the first 3-week chemotherapy cycle. The initial week after the first treatment was extremely symptomatic, with all that one would expect from an atomic explosion. Then one week later, I woke up suddenly feeling much better, and that sense has increased daily. I now prepare for the second hit.
During this time I have been blessed with a great healing of the issues I had with my dad. Bringing them to light and letting them go has been the process, and suddenly I find I can say the Ho'oponomo mantra with no residue emotion in the bones. It can take a long time to heal old wounds, and it can take no time at all - this wonderful dichotomy of life. For a fun take on the latter, and a great belly laugh if you have 5 minutes, watch Bob Newhart's approach to therapy:
