Yes, that is correct! At approximately 9:30 tonight, I will be getting into my mother's car and driving back to Ithaca, where I will sleep in my OWN bed and eat REAL food and see my friends... YES!
Although that's amazing news, today was pretty tiring. I got the port inserted (which hurt quite a bit but not nearly as much as I thought it would), and we decided to get another round of interthecal (sp?) chemotherapy over with while we're still here, so I was basically in and out of the operation rooms all day or in bed recovering from them.
My counts are expected to drop soon so anyone who wants to visit (trust me, I want you to visit), please do it soon and please make sure you're healthy. I have about a month before the next and hopefully the final round of chemo, and then, if all goes well, I will be off to college!
Things seem to be looking up, so thanks for all the support through the rough and smooth. I'll try to keep this updated while I'm at home if anything exciting happens.
Much, MUCH love,
