Ok you might ask your self what do the Property Brothers, cancer and Sarah have to do with each other? Or is this just a ruse to get you to read my blog by using a picture of these two popular TV people.
No it is not a ruse. I had planned in the story telling part of my blog to go in order of occurrence. I like organization and going in order. Sometimes it is just not to be, especially when an opportunity presents itself for fun.
A few weeks ago my friend said The Property Brothers were coming to Virginia for a grand reopening of an expanded furniture store did I want to go. Of course who doesn’t love these guys!
So we went and braved 30 mph winds. It was cold but we had a good time.
Now for the cancer part. As mentioned in 2014 I was diagnosed with colon cancer.
As part of the treatment I did chemotherapy which is SOP for this kind of cancer. My regimen required me to have infusions of several kinds of drugs. I will go into those later.
Every other week depending on my white blood cell count I had my infusions. For the first part I went to the Cancer Center and had it there. I then went home and from Tuesday afternoon until Thursday afternoon I was hooked up to a pump.
So for 48 hours I had the pump going (it was portable). So I was house bound while I received the infusion.
This is where The Property Brothers come into the picture of my cancer and my treatment.
They were my constant companions as I hung out at home getting my treatment, or on the days I didn’t feel so well. I watched every rerun and new show to the point I knew dialogue.
Yes I watched other things but it is them I remember most as I lay on the couch with my cat, Karma.
It was a good memory and thank you Property Brothers!
