It was a mellow week around here. If you don’t count the dining room table catching fire. Tip: never mix floating candles with birthday balloons.
I slept a lot. I watched movies. I made pots of soup and went to holiday parties at the home of close friends. My sister and nephew visited each with their fabulous entourage. I exercised and saw my acupuncturist. It was all-good. It’s been two weeks since my last treatment. Naturally, I feel great. That will change.
Tomorrow I hit the wall and the wall hits me back, harder.
Appointment reminder for Tuesday 1/2/2007
11:30am CHAIR 8
I like the even numbered chairs.
It’s been two months and I finally own up to my cancer. I suffer from chronic optimism so it’s really not that bad. It could be so much worse. It’s totally treatable and there is so much that been a gift:
I’ve been craving healthy foods. I’ve lost a few pounds. My business partner and my friends have amazed me. Marty is finer than I thought possible. Frannie is as compassionate as she is sweet; we can play dress up as long as I have first dibs on all the wigs and permission to hoard the hats.
On the subject of hats, I’ve been to Bloomingdales, Barney’s and Bebe and they have nothing on the Friendship Boutique at The Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
Tip: enter through the lobby and take the elevator to the 9th floor.
LB and DD joined me on my first visit to the shop where I made the mistake of pulling into the hospital parking lot earmarked for patients. From there it was direct access to the hospital. Direct access to the 3rd floor, Pediatric Oncology and the Pediatric Brain Tumor unit.
I think I speak for all of us when I say being poisoned and losing your hair never looked so good. I continue to feel lucky.
Happy New Year and all things good to all of you.
