First all, may I say how overwhelmed I am?
I was inundated with texts and messages and emails and love yesterday, and at first I wanted to kind of cringe thinking that was not my intent in writing… I wasn’t trying to solicit support. But the truth of the matter is this: I know my heart’s motive, and you read my words and acted on them. And you overwhelmed me with love.
My appointment went very well yesterday. My doctor is amazing, and I am grateful. She found nothing of concern, and I am grateful. In the next few days I will schedule one of my routine procedures, and I also need to schedule outpatient surgery to have my port-a-cath replaced. Neither one is fun. Both are necessary. Both will set my mind and heart at ease, and I am grateful.
She did find that my white blood cell counts are low, or rather lower than my normal low, so I must be extra careful about exposure to sickness. My immune system just hasn’t recovered from all I have been through the past years. I am also waiting on blood work results to see if I need another iron infusion. I should know today. The truth of the matter though is I am feeling better physically than I have felt in years, and I am grateful.
All in all, it was a two thumbs up appointment, and my oncologist patiently tended to my weepiness and reassured me that all looks good, and I am grateful.
And almost every time I turned around yesterday, my phone was chirping or ringing or buzzing… full of love from you.
And I am grateful.

Well, y’all lived well yesterday.
