Chemo week - PSYCHE!
Today was SUPPOSED to be a chemo day, but a few weeks ago I looked like a teacher with Hank. I held up a calendar and said, "Here are my chemo days and here is my family vacation. Can I do chemo here? Here?" Help played along very well with, "...that is too soon with your platelets. No that is too soon to your trip. Where are you going? Oh yeah... Do you want to go or do you want me to cancel it? (Of course, I want to go!) Well, you need a break any way to get your platelets up, so you can be off until July 9th." WHA? Thinking the better of saying that. "Okay!" So, for the next little while, I will cook my own meals, clean my own house, and go back to Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, and Ottawa. It is a bit of a whirlwind, but it will be great to see the in laws (haven't seen them since diagnosis) and friends. Can't wait to go to Second Cup and Perogie Night in TO. Want to see if Mason or Nolan will step out with me on the clear glass floor of the CN Tower and we are taking my Mother in Law, Lil, to Medevil Times. Cute story - ...so when you book with Medevil Times you are asked to show up 90 mins ahead of time for general seating. WHAT?!?! So, I called and said laughing, "Is there any way around that? My mother in law is 87 and I am a cancer patient. We may not have 90 mins!" So, with a couple fees and discounts to offset, we have reserved seating. Can't wait to see the fireworks in Ottawa, eat bread and cheese in Quebec, and just be normal, if not for just a little while. Love, Ang P.S. I will be putting out a new meal calendar so, if you want to get on the email, just contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! A Bientot!
