i went to the doctor today. and it was good news. so i guess last week they gave me a slight overdose in my injections because my wbc count is now over 20,000. remember it used to be 320. they did not really overdose me...my dr just had no idea that my body would respond like that after three injections. so i did not need a shot today and i will get my fourth chemo treatment this thursday. it was a good visit today at virginia oncology. for me it was good, but justin seemed a little off and when we got in the car he expressed how much he hated cancer and how hard this is. its just interesting to see how we both handle cancer. we handle grief differently. and we may not always have the same "good days" and "bad days." but we are trying to stay connected. and maintain some sort of healthy balance in the midst of it all. but its hard. i am good. real good. its so nice to feel like myself and today i do not even feel sick at all. we will see how long this lasts.
my dad is coming in tomorrow night. it will be nice to be with both my parents. they are going to come visit us at chemo on thursday. that might be sad. just because chemo is sad. justin is flying to ky this weekend for the golf outing. i am so glad he will be there. i wish i could go. he will finally get a break from all this. for three days he wont have to take care of me. take care of ava. or go to work. i hope its a gift for him. i am sure it will be. the sweet state of ky is the home to many of the most important people in our lives. i miss ky. thanks for supporting us with the golf outing. i am looking forward to hearing all about it. we feel loved. so very loved.
little ava is growing up. she is learning how to wave. and today she said "ball." oma gave her this ball and she loves it! she is eating normal food now and its like a new world for her. she seems to like everything we put in front of her. wow she sure is so precious.
