Well, I have been a bit MIA this week.
Because the minute I stepped off the plane from CHI
My week of hell started.
First, I am still decompressing from CHI
I too wanted to make so many more connections, but I am sort of an "ease into it" kind of person.
I have all kinds of Sh*t coming down at work (hence my lying low). I mean like 16-18 hour days.
I'm wiped out!
Today has a bit of excitement and anxiety planned.
DH gets his first set of results back from the new chemo regimen (definitely nerves on edge).
I get to go to the surgeon for a "fill/no-fill" decision.
I am torn, I could probably use a tweak, but if he said no, I couldn't argue.
I have a bit of fear instilled because of the recent series of unfills that have been posted.
AND... because tomorrow is our BIG 5K event for TEAM MARK (upper right hand corner of this page) in Philadelphia for the Multiple Myeloma Run.
We have raised $6K in Philly and DH family has a team that ran in Boston two weeks ago and raised an additional $1K. I will have a bunch of photos to post.
It is such a great event and a good feeling because 93% of the funds go directly to research for new drugs. It is not one of the "popular" cancers, so most of the research dollars do come from fundraising (which is sad to say).
On other news, we have a friggin monsoon sweeping through the area, we may need to get the ARK out to go to the appointments this morning..enough with the rain already...
I am so loving Sandy Lee's trip to Sonoma and seeing her pictures.. wine, pearls, relaxing, yeah I would call that a vacation!!
