Day 28 updated

I get to go home today! I get to go home today! They're going to take out my PICC; I'm about 60% packed; I get to take a post PICC shower; then all I have to do is wait for my family to mosey on up and spring me! Did I mention I'm going home today?

Currently, the whole plan as far as I know it is that I will see my local oncologist next week in case I need more blood, see my Lebanon oncologist the next week to plan out the whole course and (I think) get another bone marrow biopsy. Then assuming there are no surprises in the biopsy, 5 days of chemo in early August and then about every month for 5 months. 

In the meantime, I plan (imagine) that I'll keep this up, although when things are calmer, it may be less than daily. 

Thank you to everyone who has been out there supporting me, rooting for me, sending me sweet or funny cards, healing prayers and thoughts as well as phone calls, emails, visits, etc. I don't know if I could have done it without your help or not, but I am very grateful that I didn't have to find out. 

Thank you.

Don't I look good at home?
I'm home. It's nice. The world is surprisingly loud and chaotic. I went for a little walk with my family and we saw a dragonfly swarm. Then when we got home, there was another one in our front yard and my sister in law got out her net. I wondered what we looked like to the people who drove by, a lady with a dragonfly net and a bald lady. From up close, we looked happy.
