Eight Months Minus One Day To Go!

I needed to give my September 11 post from Saturday a bit of room to breathe, so I didn’t post my normal “X Months To Go!” post on Sunday. On Sunday, the countdown clock officially ticked to eight months of chemotherapy left in my treatment road map. Which, of course, makes today Eight Months Minus One Day To Go!

A few days after I posted that I had nine months of treatment left to go, I realized I had missed the chance to make a Grade A analogy about my new life starting in nine months, or a new lease on life in nine months, or being reborn in nine months. Just something having to do with birth and my nine month countdown. But then I got sick and forgot about it. By the time I got around to writing about how I hadn’t written that Grade A analogy (right now, at this moment), it just doesn’t seem that clever anymore. It seems like a Grade C analogy at best.

Now I don’t think there’s an equivalent Grade A analogy for eight months minus one day left to go of chemotherapy treatment, but if I can think of something within the next… let’s see… three days, you’ll be the first to know it, The Internet. After that, I just can’t commit anymore time to sitting around all day trying to figure out good analogies.

that’s good news. Not about 9/11 but about 8 months to go!

Thanks a lot, CJ. Oh, and I’m finally not having to sleep 20 hour days again, so I can probably Smosh more Smosh soon!
