"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."


Day +89 and I'm officially back at work!!

What a week! Wow, I didn't even work a full week but boy was I exhausted!! My body aches, my mind is still trying to remember everything and is going into about a million different places. It was so good to be back and see all those familiar faces. It was good getting back to work, but it's much harder than I anticipated as far as adjusting. Everything seems so familiar and yet so foreign at the same time. But I am trying my best and Lara and Liz have been extremely patient with me getting back into the swing of things.

I had my CT scan Friday. That went ok. It was my first CT scan with pre-meds since the last time I had a reaction to the dye. I must say, Benadryl was a really nice surprise after such a busy week. Since I drove, they wouldn't let me leave on my own until I had flushed everything out. So, I enjoyed the meds' side effects and actually napped for 3 hours!! It's been months since I've napped and it felt so good. So, let's hope my docs have nothing to report. I see my SCT doc Tuesday morning and then see my Lymphoma doc Wednesday morning. I'm just glad it's over and I'm hoping I have a few months off before I go back again for more tests.

It's been crazy here as Gabriel and I have switched roles yet again. And to top it off, he is starting his own property tax business and the season kicks off in a few months....so that's made our lives even busier. Oh, I happily volunteered to be the cookie sales manager for our troop this year, so that's getting ready to take off in a few weeks. Our house will be filled with cookies from floor to ceiling and then I'll be at stores bright and early every Saturday in March until we have sold our last cookie!! :-) And that's just skimming the top of what goes on in our house. lol! I love it and wouldn't have it any other way.

Much love to all,
