Calm Before The Storm

I was delighted to receive a pass to go home for a couple of days this weekend.  Since they don’t initiate treatment over the weekend and I wasn’t being treated for anything, it was deemed that there was no reason to stay in the hospital.  So…for two glorious nights…I was able to sleep in my own bed, shower in my own shower and pee whenever I wanted to without having to unplugged from anything.  Now that the infection has cleared up, I’m feeling pretty close to normal.  I bit tired, but overall quite good.  I’ll be going back to Cedars later today to get another bone marrow biopsy and possibly start treatment.  The photo above is from yesterday.   Next one I post will probably be with a shiny pate.    Emotionally, I guess it’s fair to say I’m in the pocket. Being home helped my overall mood.  I’m anxious about what I’m going to have go through, but optimistic that the result will be a good one. I have a lot of faith in the team assigned to my case.  And the outpouring of support from all of you has been very comforting.  I truly appreciate it.
