Enjoying My Vacation

I'm enjoying my week off. Starting to feel like my old self again. I have a CBC blood test tomorrow, but other than that I am chemo free for another week. I have been keeping pretty busy. My grandmother was admitted to the hospital about a week ago with blood clots and sepsis. They got the sepsis eliminated and they are giving her meds to thin her blood out and slowly remove the clots. I spent several days up there this week trying to catch the doctor to ask a few questions and I finally caught him today. Advocating for her has helped me to keep my mind off of my own health issues this week. I also got to spend some quality time with my mother.

Last night we went to the Paint the Town Pink forum at Will Rogers Memorial Center. It is a yearly event sponsored by the American Cancer Society. They had vendors set up at tables from various cancer organizations, cancer supply stores, and cancer treatment centers. After that, they had a full buffet dinner and several speakers. The event was free to all. There were at least 500-600 people there. We really enjoyed it and I think it will become an annual event for us.
