A step in the right direction.

Today I was discharged from home health for the first time in 2 and a half years because I feel too good and I am no longer home bound. Not to say that I am completely out of the woods as I am still working on healing but according to tests I still have cancer, just a lot less of it. I am trying not to doubt this good fortune or attach a timer to it, crazier things have happened…I am trying to wrap my mind around the possibility that I could be well someday, it’s not as easy as you might think. Please don’t think I am complaining, this is a good problem to have.

I am exhausted from today though, it’s a big deal to be set free and I will miss my caregivers, these nurses of home health who deal with unsupportive administrators and sometimes unstable environments of people who cannot leave their homes (if they even have one) yet they keep doing the best they can to better the lives of people who often have nobody else to help them. My home health nurses have my admiration and utmost respect and I am grateful to have been taken care of so well…I will also miss saying inappropriate things in order to make them laugh.

Tomorrow I see my oncologist and I will let you know how that went next week.

Until next time ❤️

Thanksgiving has never been my favorite. Even before the real story of the pilgrims and Christopher Columbus came out (I know these are separate things but equally problematic.) As a child of divorce

It's interesting this new direction I am going in. I kind of feel floaty and untethered in the land of the unknown. I have a sense of overwhelm thinking about all of the things I can do or need to do.
