Today, while lounging in the pool with my mother, she asked if I had canceled chemo.
Mother: Did you remember to cancel Dr. X?
Me: (leaving pool) Oh, I forgot…
Mother: Where are you going?
Me: To call them now…
Me: (on phone) Hi, this is Rochelle Rochelle. I called to cancel my appointment tomorrow.
Office: Ok, would you like to reschedule?
Me: No- I decided to not have chemo.
Mother: At this time
Office: Ok, thank you.
Mother: I am cancelling chemo at this time is what you should have said.
Me: What?? I am going to do the trial.
Mother: Yes, but what happens if it doesn’t work?
Me: WTF, why wouldn’t it work???
Mother: Well if it doesn’t, then you will have to do chemo.
Me: OMG, and you want me to think positively????
Mother: It will work.
