Cycle 6 Week 24 - My Today, My Tomorrow

Blogpost | Twitter

 

Sometimes unexpectedly, a really amazing thing will happen to you - like a friend calling to meet up for sushi, or finding a beautiful flower, while walking through a forest.

 

My cancer levels for May dropped to 36 from between 47 and 48 in April. I missed 2 weekly sessions of chemo while hospitalized for 10 days due to my blood infection, so this is really incredible.

 

Happy dance!

 

My first night, while still in ER, I was given a COVID-19 test and thankfully found out the next morning I had tested negative. During that night, I didn’t sleep much, I worried about my grocery shopping that morning and wondered if I had unknowingly infected others.

 

I’m wearing a mask whenever I leave my apt now, to better protect others from me. It helps give me peace of mind, especially when I go for chemo treatment or when around people with compromised immune systems.
