Thankful for WHAT?!?
On the way home from the hospital after our very first visit, I was reading the “chemo book” out loud to Chris. It was a depressing read except for one line: “For more information, check out our video, “How the Bowel Works,” which I could barely speak out loud for giggling like a nine-year-old.
It became a byword. Whenever we needed to add some levity, one or the other of us would suggest picking up that video from the MD Anderson library and we would snicker.
Today, eight rounds of chemotherapy and seven surgeries later, I still giggle, but I also know that a functioning digestive system is a miracle not to be taken for granted. And I’m thankful, every single time I step into the bathroom.
Happy Thanksgiving. Be sure to eat plenty of fiber.
