Today I started treatment again after my two week hiatus. It was a long day at the hospital but I had a good reward. I got the go ahead from my APRN to go into the loft. If you know me, you know how much I love to shop. I haven’t been into a store since November. Of course my bank account was thanking me, but the stores were sure missing me. I think the mall played “hallelujah” when I walked through the doors J Of course I made some nice purchases, with everything being conveniently on sale. So now I’ve had my fix for a little while. It was nice to get out; it felt like a typical mother daughter outing (which was much needed).

Well I am off to bed. I will have a busy weekend ahead of me. Plenty of schoolwork and treatment have my name written all over it.

Till next time…KMS

Today I graduated from radiation! I completed my 8 treatments and rang the gong. I had talked about ringing the gong all weekend (who wouldn’t be excited J). Come to find out there is a significance to the gong. The banging of the gong symbolizes the restoration of balance, harmony and life energy ( It was a very exciting moment. It is another step in my journey. While I continue to take it one step @ a time it is nice to take time to recognize the milestones.

Here is the video:

Today was day 29 of consolidation. I now have two weeks off from treatment. This hiatus is specifically designed to let my labs recover. My labs are definitely not pretty right now (I know, I know I asked for this). Today was a very long day much thanks to Epic go-live. All my Yale friends know exactly what I am talking about. While long, it is over now and I am home on the couch watching tv. I am planning on doing some schoolwork and relaxing this weekend. It was a busy week going to radiation every day, but Monday is my last day of radiation! I am very excited J It is going to be a big day! Another milestone in this ALL journey.

Today I watched a You Tube video of a recent flash mob performed at Union Station in New Haven, CT. It is definitely inspirational. Being closer to free is something I am sure every cancer patient seeks. While being in remission is exciting, there is still many days of treatment left. I will continue to take it one step @ a time till I am closer to free. See the link below to watch the video.
Till next time…KMS
