Chemotherapy Induced Time Travel

(crossposted from Coffee and Chemo)

My son and I were sitting down for an afternoon snack together.

Suddenly, I had a major hot flash!

I explained that my drug induced menopause caused it. I then elaborated that women usually go through menopause around age 50.

“You mean,” my son asked, with a twinkle in his eye, “you went forward in time?!”

  1. Haha. Out of the mouths of babes! As I sit here and read this I just this moment came down from my daughter’s room where we were putting away clothes (well, I was…she was lying in her bed) suddenly I was overcome with a hotflash and started stripping off my sweater. My daughter was asking me all sorts of questions about what they were and why…this led to a whole conversation about estrogen and getting your period. Yikes, I wasn’t ready for that conversation :). Hot flashes and young kids –what a combo!

    Alabamapink passed away last wednesday. I’m not sure how everyone posts on the main blog but she was a wonderful person and we’ll miss her.

    Hahahahahaha! Too funny!

  5. Frances — I can “top” that — a few days ago, I just could not deal with the heat….. use your imagination!

    I’m sorry to learn of Alabamapink’s passing. It is always so sad to hear such news.

    It makes appreciating the humor of cancer that more important, especially for those of us living with cancer as a chronic condition.

  6. The style of writing is very familiar . Have you written guest posts for other blogs?

  7. I’d like to think that my writing seems familiar, because I write as if I’ve known you for years….
