On the way to the hospital to get transfused. This is a good thing – fresh new red cells will carry more oxygen to my brain and are pretty much guaranteed to help my shortness of breath. I am post chemo day 2 for this week and still recovering from super-blitz chemo last week, so anything at all that will help me feel a little stronger sounds like a great idea to me. Phone signals are NOT good at the hospital, so don’t worry if I don’t answer or text back (besides, with all the premeds, there is a good chance I’ll sleep through the whole thing…) AND!!! Sam is coming home tonight. OK, Gotta go.

Thankful for blood donors, it really truly is such a gift of life.
I am settled in for the afternoon at the hospital, where they have the fanciest infusion chairs ever… with remote controls and even heated seats.
Wearing my sock-sisters socks from last Christmas, because they remind me to be grateful for the best friends ever. And now I am going to take a nap.
