Positive Reinforcement

New course of treatment starts on Thursday. In the spirit of not being Debbie Downer, I thought I'd share a few good things about the timing of this new regimen.

  • I get to watch the season finale of Project Runway over at my mom's house instead of in a hospital bed. I'm totally Team Leanne.
  • This time around I'll be in the brand spanking new oncology ward. Fancypants new rooms and everything. Plus the new building is right off the parking deck so visitors don't have to go around the world in 80 days to find me.
  • Another day to spend with my guys, work on Alastair's Halloween costume, and a few more button projects for my mom to sell at the church craft show on Friday.
My doc said this would be a different, untried chemical, probably kick my ass, but this is what I am looking for-something to put me through the wringer and hopefully my stubborn leukemia as well.

And I will miss the Big Flea Market this weekend out at the old fairgrounds. Nuts.

More notes of positivity- Tonight at dinner we were trying to cajole Little A (world's slowest eater) to finish up his dinner so we could take a trip to the mall for new shoes. He asked if we could take the truck to the mall. I told him we would take the Mini so we could play the iPod and listen to Madonna. Little A's face lit up and he exclaimed, "Mommy I love you!"

Yes indeedy, my son likes Madonna.

All of us, even those of us you don't know, will be thinking about you, sending you positive, healing energy.

And my son likes Dolly Parton! ;)

The real question is..."new" Madonna or "correct" Madonna?

Best of luck today! I'll be thinking about you!

I'm delurking to say that I feel like you are going to be ok. I have nothing to base that on, I don't know you or your disease, but I just have a feeling, and sometimes thats all you've got, and it's enough. And yes, I also abuse comma's. But please don't let it distract from the message: I feel like you are going to be okay.

I will continue to keep you and your family in my thoughts. Fight this bitch! :)
