Now Playing: Day 779-The Final Road To Survival
It felt absolutely GREAT to finally catch up on some solid sleep! I am also glad the holiday Dranotini weekend is over. Now its time to bounce back from treatment and allow my body a few days of freedom before the next one begins.
With it being a holiday weekend and no mail delivered yesterday the mailman made up for it today. Included in a huge stack of mail was another huge stack of papers for my upcoming surgeries. I am still dealing with the first round. This is almost like signing your life away and I am not even in the surgery room yet! Hahahaha! It might be a good thing I still have a little over a week to fill the rest of the paperwork out and mail it back to my new surgeons office. Thankfully there are no other doctor appointments scheduled for the remainder of this month so it looks like I will be catching a bit of a much needed break!
Its been a very, very pleasant day and I feel good vibes ahead for next month. Today was a turning point and one step in the right direction. I asked last week, "Where is the help?" Guess what? It finally called, emailed and showed up today. Maybe breaking down some of my privacy walls is helpful in order for others to understand what I need as far as help. I am not the type of person to ask for help but with a team of 2 its almost impossible to handle our full plate. This afternoon a huge portion of that plate got lifted. It started early this morning in the form of emails then continued through out the afternoon with phone calls and visits to the house. The amount of support given by not just friends within the city but strangers whom I have yet to meet but care enough about us and my overall health and happiness stepped forward one by one. We no longer have to be concerned about anything other than getting my body ready for the upcoming surgeries.
There will be a few weeks ahead of us filled with changes but all positive. Its slowing starting to feel like a huge weight and burden is being released off our shoulders. Not that all this amazing help and support from everyone wasn't enough I also got treated from a very talented local hair stylist to a evening spoiling my poor locks. Thank you so much Jennifer! You are amazing and it was so nice to share an evening of conversation filled with smiles, tears and laughter. My hair also thanks you too! Jennifer will now be handling the final transition of going from hair here gone tomorrow but as a step by step process this way she said I don't go into hairless shock, hahahaha! I can't forget Frances aka Sis for all the support you and Roland have given me through this rough bump in the road. Gym Moms and their families who continue to cheer me on from the side line thank you for offering your help. Pam and Mike-Eric said thank you for sending over the home made dinners after hours of working outdoors helping with the house repairs. Big Joe and family for offering their assistance how ever it may be needed. HCSD employees and others who have remained anonymous thank you, thank you and thank you! Its through trying times in life that you realize strength is indeed in numbers. I am very humbled and we can't thank you enough! -XOXOXOXOXO
