So the past week has been one of chaos......

Echo.....check
Scans with radioactive injection and CT contrast...yum
Chemo yesterday..............done

Well, I arrived bright and early to talk to my therapist......just love the man.....I love to bounce around what is going on in Rondasworld and he lets me know the good, the bad, and the...yep, that's ronda.

Well, I visited all around the hospital a bit....actually wondered around and said hello.  I do love that hospital.....just not being the patient.  I went back to the chemo treatment room to have my labs drawn and was told I didn't have an appointment and not scheduled for chemo...well, I pretty much know all of my appointments...because I schedule them and I carry around my appointment book...aka my brain with me everywhere I go. 


So of course it made me nervous.....I need my chemo.....so I was told to go back out to wait.  UGH......here is another long day about to begin.  I was upset because no one said let me double check or that they would make it happen.....no, just researching to prove I'm not listed in the books....how about someone saying...."No, we don't see you, but we will make it happen......"  Oh, well.....back out to the waiting room to ......WAIT. 

So my Doc came out......big hug, huge smile, and it just made me smile.....told her about not being scheduled and well.....she told me not to worry and yes, I did have a treatment appointment (not crazy yet) ...so all of that worry/concern/panic for nothing.   So first things first....we talked about my upcoming travels, how I feel, etc.......

I was fitted for lymphedema sleeves and gloves.......as a preventative measure.....but I'm going to look cute with both arms in nude sleeves, hand gloves, and bilateral thigh high stockings.....bring on the hot flashes..........

 

I had my treatment......I left with a smile on my face.....so my news is:

 

I am so excited to just live my life......I'm winning in the sense that I am LIVING. 

 

News#1....I'm flying to New Zealand........:)  I could write a thousand things.....but to sum it up....I'm traveling.

 

News#2.....My scans were clear......meaning they can't see anything....even my doctor cried.....I know there is micrometastasis...but you can't see it so hopefully it stays at bay for........forever.

 

Thank you all for your love...it does make me smile...I read all of it.  I will pray for your friend Maresa, I thank all of you for writing me all the time and sending your love.....it is the kindness of all of you that makes MY life better.  Thank you God for all my blessings.

 

So get out there and LIVE......LIVE every moment like it is your last.......you never know when it will be.  So cheers....God day mate and all that Jazz......I'm on a PLANE.......soon!!!!!!!!
