You know it's a good day when...

  • You make your bed.
  • You can drive yourself to your appointment. Even if you have to park on the third floor of the parking garage with no elevator and walking up and down those stairs wears you out a little bit. You did it!
  • You go to the hospital to get your PICC line dressing changed and blood drawn, and while the line flushes, no blood comes out. Just when you begin to panic a little that the leukemia is back and has sucked all your blood, the nurse decides to try a clot buster, and after a half-hour flush, the blood comes out just fine. PHEW!
  • You have a cheeseburger at the Carlyle for lunch with Sheila! Delish!
  • You take a two-hour nap.
  • You haven't taken any anti-nausea meds so far today.
Phew!

Ditto all the other comments before this one! So glad to hear of a great day! (Do you park at Virginia Hospital Center? I hate their parking garage!! It's so patient un-friendly and usually full! I hope you're finding ways to navigate that inconvenience!!)

My four-year-old grandson was diagnosed with Leukemia in May of this year. He is in remission and is doing well at this point. Please keep him in your prayers as we will keep you in ours.
