Being healthy is kind of boring these days, not much to complain about. To-do lists and chores have replaced the structure of being an inpatient in the hospital. I have to keep myself busy…right. That’s what the doctor’s orders are these days.
Since I have been feeling great, hanging out with my new immune system I figured I would take it shopping. First stop Nordstrom’s, then Bed Bath and Beyond, a trip to Target, all in the same afternoon. Starting regularly going to restaurants again, dinner with a bunch of friends, lunch with my mom…all things I took for granted before my diagnosis.
Last week I mentioned I was on an organizing kick, but there is only so much stuff-to-stuff into boxes. So we decided to take it to the next level, we decided to redecorate the house, figured it was a good place to start. Bought new living furniture, changed the double home office into an office/lounge since Jenna is a no longer a student. Before I start my consolidation phase, we are having the basement redone again, this is the 2nd time we have redone the basement. This time we are taking a few more liberties with the remodel.
Health wise I am doing great. Labs every Monday is now routine. Counts were right where they needed to be today. As I was leaving the hospital today, I ran into one of my Oncology nurses, I showed her my lab results; she gave me a huge hug (Thanks Shannon). It was great to get that affirmation that everything is going in the right direction.
Since I am feeling great, I am going to start riding my bike again this week. It a good way to get out of the house, and since we live practically in a park with bike trials there is really no excuse for me not to get out every day.
I’m doing great. Not much to complain about, just 2 Phillies games; Doc, Cole, a Harry K statue and a Polly bobble head to look forward to this week.
See you at the bank; I’ll be in section 204
P.S. I will be forming a Light the Night team. Keep an eye out for more info and how you can help support my team and the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
