Day 61 (Still home. Yay!)

Hola!
No news concerning cancer right now, which is a good thing.
Yesterday I got my roomate and room assignment for Clark U!! We went straight out and bought some comfy bedding and I've been facebooking my roomie lots.
The only medical news to report is that I got a shot today to stimulate my white blood cells to grow while my counts are dropping so that I don't turn neutropenic again. Hurt a little, but I figure I've had a lot worse in the past few months.
Anyway, my temperature is good, my port looks fine according to our friend (who is a certified nurse) and everything looks alright so far. I'm trying not to jinx it...
Hi to all the nurses on 63400, 81200 and the ICU!!
Much love,
Marika

Hi there.
Sounds like the last few weeks have been amazing.
You certainly deserve it Darlin!
This beautiful,lush summer is nature's gift to you.The rest of us also appreciate it!
I will call to make a date to see you soon.
Chance has taken a giant turn toward old age these last few weeks and has been in a lot of pain.Our whole family (2 and 4 leggeds) are trying to accept it .
It is very hard.
Love you.
