With another chemo just about behind me, I am excited to get home to my lovely family and the comfortable confines of my couch. While this has been an easy stay–barely any nausea, plenty of good sleep, and the knowledge that I am lying here lymphoma-free–it has sucked to be away from Jacq and Sophia. Sophia seems to change a little bit every day. And while I’ve gotten to see her each day, I want to be with her all the time, literally watching her grow, coo, and play all day.
Home today means a few days of nausea, then a brief respite before the mild neutropenia of the A cycle. I can’t say that I am looking forward to three more chemos, but each stay here means having this process closer to being behind us. And that, my friends, is a great thing to be looking forward to.
We are currently in the planning stages of a huge lymphoma free celebration in late May or early June. We are planning to do a 5k run/walk in Philly and then having a big bash at the house. More details to come.
