Happy New Year!

I've been home from the hospital for nearly a week. Jason and his family came for a few days and we had our Christmas celebration on Thursday, December 29. It was fun, even though I didn't feel very well. I love seeing my kids and grandkids all together.

Ahlyssa brought her viola and played for us. I loved that!

I'm still fighting the mucositis, but it is improving. I've been back to the hospital several times for labs, but haven't had to have any transfusions lately, just potassium and magnesium. I'll go back again on Tuesday.

I'm very tired. I'm supposed to keep walking, but just going up or down stairs or taking a shower wipes me out. I'm trying to eat more. I hope that will help to keep my energy up.

It looks like a pretty day outside--lots of sunshine. Hope you're having a lovely Monday.

Thanks for the update (and the kind words for Dave whose son died)

We all worry when we don't hear from you...

Happy New Year

Hi! Happy New Year! :) We had a little celebration here, nothing major, just Mike and I. We went out for ice cream then came home and lit a fire in the firepit out back and sat and watched all the fireworks going off in our neighborhood. We have awesome neighbors who all spend hundreds of dollars on fireworks so it was a 360degree celebration at midnight. So fun!

I'm sorry to hear the mucositis is still plauging you - I was hoping it would be resolved by today. :(

I was thinking, going up and down the stairs is like taking several laps around the BMT unit so just by going up and down the stairs once a day you are getting in a lot of exercise!

Happy New Year - I love you!
