What does that mean anyway? I mean I know what it means but where in the world did that expression come from?? Hold on a minute, I got to go look it up...................
Ok here's what I found out-A whammy was originally an evil influence or hex. It originated in the USA in the 1940s and is associated with a variety of sports.
So apparently a Double Whammy is 2 evil influences. Anyway, I don't think I'm under any evil hex but life sure is dealing me a bad hand right now.
The other part of my whammy is that tomorrow I go see the oncologist to find out what the plan is about radiation treatments. (if some of you new readers missed it, I was in the process of healing from surgery and I had uterine cancer). Even though they think it is gone, they are recommending 26 radiation treatments, five days a week for almost six weeks.
I've prayed and prayed that I'll go in tomorrow and he'll say they've decided I don't need them but I have a feeling that is not going to happen. And so, I'll deal with it.
I will still be able to work during the treatments and I'm planning on going back to work on Monday. That is going to be weird. I've been gone for two months.
And so, if we'll see what happens there. Grief causes fatigue, the side effects of radiation is fatigue, I don't see how I'm going to be able to move. But like I said, I'll find the strength to do whatever it is I have to do.
Besides, I don't want that MEAN 'ole Cancer showing back up, I'm moving to Washington.
I want to be with my son and his family.
IF you think about it, and I try not to think too much, I'm really being whammied. Within two months I find out I had cancer and I lose my son. Life sure asks for a lot out of you sometimes huh?
But I am strong, and besides, what choice do I have? Somethings you just have to experience and this seems to be the journey chosen for me. (Somebody please remind me of this post when I get so down in the dumps and start feeling sorry for myself.)
