For those fellow Empire fans out there, as I told my boss, seeing my IV immediately triggers “drip, drop, drip, drippity, drop” In my head. You’re quite welcome for now getting it stuck in your head.
So a couple brief updates:
1.) My cousin Sara gets married TOMORROW. I’m even more excited because my one and only big broski is not only going to be there but he is also officiating the wedding. ❤
2.) I volunteered again for The Izzy Foundation in the Izzy Room at Hasbro Children’s hospital last night. They had an ice cream party/improv night and it was a blast!
I’m glad that Chris could see the Izzy Room in action because he is running a 1/2 marathon and chose The Izzy Foundation to raise funds for. Here are your donation dollars at work!
Now that I’m functioning under a more tolerable trestment, I’d like to spend more time in the Izzy Room. There is no amount of money that could equate to how happy I am when I’m there. Being in a hospital blows, period. I’m so glad that the children’s hospital has a safe, fun, space for kids to just be kids. A great refuge for parents as well!
3.) My CA-125 is down another 1000! Currently sitting at 1184 after two full cycles (6 consecutive weeks) of treatment. I started at over 4000 prior to treatment plan #3 starting.
This benadryl fueled selfie (benadrelfie?) Semi-captures my excitement…OK or maybe it just captures a doofy stare and a VERY overtired/medicated cancer crusher. Tomato-tomahto.
I’ll leave you on an entertaining note by recapping a conversation with my trainer because it made me giggle:
Matt: if you could have any super power what could it be?
Me: Um, time travel I think. What about y-
Matt: SPATULA HANDS
…may you all be blessed with a great week and spatula hands.
