I took it pretty easy Thursday and Friday, for me, and Saturday we had wonderful friends visiting overnight. I was tired & a bit loopy from the anti-seizure medication I’m on (standard prophylactic post-procedure stuff, along with steroids), but greatly enjoyed myself. This afternoon I took a walk and gradually edged myself into bed where I have been using my brain but resting my body ever since.
The people who are living with metastatic cancer are showing up for me–through personal connections with some of you, thank you!, and just by the power of the web (and those of you helpfully pointing me to where I need to look). It has been really good to be able to people the landscape in front of me with the existence of these folks, even if I don’t know them, even if I don’t ever call them in the end.
What next week offers: chemo tomorrow AM, a final postpartum visit with a recent client Tuesday, a follow-up appointment with the radiation oncologist Thursday, and PACKING! for the Grand Canyon emergency family adventure trip that starts Saturday AM (and brings us home Thursday the 30th).
