justin and i had a great weekend. ava did too. she was mostly with oma and loved it. we went out on friday night and then went to a hotel on saturday. it was perfect. good to get away and know that ava was more than fine without us. we ate good food, got on the same page, and rested. necessary for both of us. but i really need it. i am constantly exhausted. i could sleep all day and still be tired. its like i can't ever catch up. but i tried to. i was reminded how much i love my husband and how we are so right for each other. as we sat at our favorite restaurant on high street to watch college football and talk about our lives... i would get teary eyed as i talked about friends who had loved me well this week or emails i had received from strangers that meant to much. to those he knew he took out his phone to send them a text to thank them. i have said this often, but thanks for writing me. i am unable to always respond, but i appreciate it. and i saw on saturday how much it means to justin to know that people are caring for me here in chesapeake and all over the country. as we were walking out of the hotel lobby i said to justin we should try and do this once a month while i am getting chemo and he said we should do this once a month for the rest of our lives. so we will see. also snl was hilarious on saturday night.
but now we start a new week. a new week of dr appts and chemo. i get my wbc count checked tomorrow to see if my levels are high enough for chemo on thursday. hopefully they are. although i hate getting chemo i know that i need it and i know that us staying on target is what is best for me. i just love when i get a week off...its like a little gift.
over the past few weeks many of our family and friends from ky and tn have participated in the leukemia and lymphoma society "light the night walk." its a walk to raise awareness about these blood cancers and to raise money for research. it was humbling to see how many people were there walking for "team libby." thanks for loving us and supporting us. we appreciate the support.
