Eat, drink, and be merry, for today there shall be NO chemo!!!
OK, so this morning, I geared up, got up, and went to the clinic ready to take my medicine like a good girl. My numbers all came back good except my platelets. They are pretty low. Too low, in fact, that the doctor wants to give my body another week to build back up again before they shoot me full of more poison. "WHAT did you say??" I couldn't believe my ears. I was so excited to have a reprieve for a week. A week to feel somewhat normal, a week to do other things than work my life around side effects...WAHOO! The nausea I was feeling immediately turned to hunger. It was lunchtime, so Reid took me to Magelby's Fresh for a slice of my favorite halibut. It was absolutely delicious. Life is good! Freedom is going to mean just a little bit more to me this Independence Day, so Happy 4th of July to me, my family, you and yours, and the whole wonderful United States of America!
