Home Checkup and A Relaxing Weekend

Posted Aug 19 2009 6:32pm
I went to my local oncologist yesterday for my 1st check since being home, my counts were good, my anc that needed to be over 500 was 700, and should be to 1000 by Mondays blood test, then they say you are in remission because your counts are fully recovered. Right now I am set to go back to Moffit 1st week of August for another biopsy, checkups and 5 days of consolidation chemo - we have to keep me healthy and in remission now that I am there, the dates are not final yet.

We are enjoying our time at home, doing mundane things like grocery shopping, taking Livy to school, banks, etc. I went with Steven to his office and met alot of wonderful people I heard good things about, we were at doctor yesterday with all waiting, etc for three hours, and then last night we celebrated Sofia's 5th birthday with a small party, the kids had a blast, and it was really nice to see our friends and their families and visit. We had a slip and slide and anotehr small water slide and the kids entertained themselves with that, a pinata was fun too. Everyone was exhausted at end of night, I was in bed by 10 and slept till 8, longest for me in a long time.

We relaxed today and I even got a nap, which felt great. Being home is wonderful. Hope everyone is having a great weekend too! When I download the photos from the party I will post, it was wonderful to see the kids having such fun - and see it for myself and not through photos.
