Kathy, good for you to go tropical. I just laugh and that's the best medicine this chemo girl could have!!!
Julie, you must tell the "Stand tall stand proud" story because you can only tell it best. I just laugh and laugh and laugh. We all can relate....well maybe not! :-)
I wanted to thank the village for being my best medicine. I love this blog. It helps me to feel connected and not so homesick.
Thanks to everyone for the cards, well wishes, gift cards, and words of encouragement. I am truly blessed to have such a village on my side. I am starting to recover from round 1 with a few issues but nothing that couldn't be rectified with a pharmacological intervention. This place is absolutely amazing and is on top of everything. I have never reported my bodily functions on a daily basis like I have to today. Go figure.
My friend Becky didn't have time to get a hat prepared but she is my nurse and believe me what she had to deal with brought our friendship to a whole new level!!!!! Lets just say that there's no dignity in cancer.
Thanks to everyone for keeping me going. I am in nadir right now and will start to climb out of it tomorrow. Taking the immune system down creates interesting issues and zaps my energy. Nurse Ratchet, I mean Nurse Dee, has given Nurse Becky instructions where I am walking daily, have an outing to get out of the apartment, and makes sure that my temperature is taken 2 times per day. Of course it has to be documented in the log. That nurse Dee is all over it I swear.
I don't mind if the hat contest gives everyone a winner and if anyone wants to post a hat picture I thoroughly enjoy it. It just makes me laugh. I like pictures as well so feel free to send pics to Dee and she can post them.
I value each and everyone one of you that are a part of my healing village. I feel truly blessed to have such kind, loving, and hilarious friends.
Sis, Michelle is working on Terri size 10 as your roommate since Sue Size 9 went back to work as a drill instructor. Michelle, does Terri wear boxers or briefs? We never got that information from Sue Size 9. Sis?
Love to all of you from Houston Texas. You make my life rich and fun!!
