Thank you for all of the kind notes of encouragement. I would have posted sooner, but had a detour on my road to recovery. I was bed ridden for almost three weeks and was not able to really sit in front of the lap top. The good news is that I have pretty much recovered from the infection. I have been able to get out and walk this week, which really does a lot of good for the attitude, etc. I am also able to sit in the chair next to the big window in my room and do things like type this note. I have come to really appreciate little victories.
As Angie mentioned in a previous post, I have started a new chemotherapy regimen. It is treating me good so far. The doctors and nurses are keeping a pretty close eye on me (doing multiple blood tests everyday). Right now, we are unsure if I will need to spend the next month in the hospital or not. I am not happy with the prospect of spending more time away from my family and friends, but I am comfortable with it. I am receiving excellent care and realize that this is where I need to be at this time.
Again, thank you for all of your prayers and kind words. I can't describe to you how much it means to me knowing that so many awesome people are in my corner. I love you all and will keep you updated on my progress.
With much love,
