Cancer Sucks Update: What a week, whew! A huge shout out to everyone who helped me get through it with a smile! (Including the largest balloon I’ve ever seen in my life) 🎈
My 103.1 fever brought me into the ER on Tuesday, followed by an unexpected super fun few days with some of my favorite nurses at Mercy. I had my second drain bag (yes, it is as attractive as it sounds) installed to keep yet another abscess at bay. After all that, and after being cleared of all infections, I was able to get my port installed in time- so chemo this Tuesday won’t have to be delayed. Yay!
After finally getting home and a couple of days of sleep, it was haircut time. It’s been falling out like crazy, but thankfully I’m lucky enough to be neighbors with Hair by Emily Coffin, who was so kind to come to my home to give me a sassy, albeit temporary, new cut. Thanks again, Emily!
Then, my other neighbor, Michael, came over with the most incredible surprise and presented me with this amazing American flag plaque from Michael Hrdlicka of Nida Marketing Group, Inc that simply brought me to tears!! 🇺🇸🤗🇺🇸
It’s been a crazy 6 days of tests and pokes and scans and unfavorable results, but we keep charging ahead, one day at a time, with the biggest smiles we can muster! #cancersucks
