so not only do i have the smallest amount of red blood cells ever recorded, I also apparaently have the hardest/densest hip bone in town. The bone marrow biopsy went okay yesterday but the nurse practioner had a very difficult time breaking into my bone because it was so strong.....I was rather proud :)
Other than the biopsy (which is to check to see if the treatment has been clearing out the marrow of the bad cells), i had two different chemo treatements yesterday. All went well and I have been way less nauseous this week. The nurses at the outpatient chemo center are all amazing and I think that there will be some new lifelong friends out of this hiccup. I cant say enough about everybody I have interacted with out at Hershey.
I also want to brag some more about those around me. I had a great surprise yesterday that came at a great time. Some of my friends made a scapbook for me of memories and well-wishes and it was an enormous spirit lifter. I can't describe how blessed I feel.
Well, today is another day to cross off the calendar, take a big step forward, and kick some butt. its the only option.
thanks for walking with me. Here is another favorite quote of mine:
"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, it has no survival value; rather, it is one of those things that gives value to survival"
and....ALL will be well
