Friday, August 17, 2012 Time for Things to Come Together

Posted on August 22, 2012. Filed under: Cancer | Tags: , , , |

Yahooooo! I’m sitting in the merry-go-round room for my final drip in this cycle. Today, I get the picc line removed and two weeks without treatment!!! I can’t wait. Next Wednesday I’ll have another bone marrow biopsy and they expect the results to be clear of leukemia cooties. If not, I’m looking at more treatment??? We will cross that bridge when we come to it and, until then, remain in ignorant bliss and attracting positive vibes.

Speaking of coming together, my brother has arrived for a visit from Dubai via Boston and DC. He’s staying in my studio and goes about his agenda. Last night, we dined on homemade Iranian food his friend in DC made for us. It was wonderful. My childhood friend, Pam is also in town to see her new grandson and we are getting together this afternoon. Tomorrow, Diane has a little reunion luncheon in honor of her birthday. On Monday, the old crowd will be dining with Colleen who is in town from the East coast. It will be great to get together with everyone.

Meanwhile, other things need to be put back together…because they are falling apart. When I leave the merry-go-round room today, I hope my car starts. When I was exiting the garage today, I had to start it three times before it kicked on. I have a new battery and I can hear the click of it trying to turn over. Seems to me, it’s the alternator or starter. I am going to bring it directly to the dealer where my awesome Hyundai warranty should cover it. Back at the ranch, Scott is working on returning the patio umbrellas we purchased. We’ve had to replace two parts due to wind within one month. They were obviously not made for Chicago. Bummer. The dishwasher is broadcasting scary messages on the front. And my purse from Target is going back. First the zipper broke. Now the handles are tearing off. Yes, I carry a lot in it, but a big purse should be able to handle it. Bummer. I wish things worked the way they are supposed to–especially my body!
