Finger-tapping (Impatience, not rhythm)

I’ve been patient for the last 8 months, and now that I’m down to single-digit days before my last chemo, I’m getting impatient. Will Friday ever get here? In spite of sleeping 14 – 16 hours a day for the last couple days, I’m still awake too much, if my impatience is any indication.

I keep picturing myself pacing around the chemo suite with my pole of bags in hand, occasionally squeezing them to try to make the drugs flow faster. None of this sitting around reading or knitting while the slow drip-drip-drip of poisonous, life-saving fluid seeps into my body – no! I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!

3 more days . . .
