Magic Medicine…. Round 5, Day 2
Ronan’s day went pretty well. He slept a lot today and I spent the day cuddled up beside him. We were both tired from last night. Because he is hooked up to so many fluids to keep him hydrated, he wakes up about every half an hour to pee. He is too proud to wear…
What am I doing?? Not sleeping.
UGH. I should be sleeping. I can feel myself getting tired. I tried to sleep. I really did. I cuddled up with Ronan and he was sooooo snuggly. He soon fell asleep. I did not. As soon as I started to drift off, the nurses started coming in and out. Checking his fluids, blood pressure,…
Magic Medicine…. Round 5, Day 1
Ronan’s counts came back and thankfully, they were high enough for us to start Round 5! Big sigh of relief for us. Now, we are just waiting on hearing back from Sloan Kettering to see what our surgery date will be changed to. We will be now be leaving later than we had originally planned…
Beautiful weekend, beautiful friends
What a great, long weekend. We spent it pretty low key. We really just hung out at home, watching movies, playing outside, and getting ready for the upcoming week. On Saturday, Charisma, and her family, who had been in Tucson for Thanksgiving, drove up for the day to see us. We spent the day watching…Alice in Wonderland, angels, arizona, awareness, brave, Charisma Carpenter, chelsea’s kitchen, Chemotherapy, childhood cancer, dreams, Energy, faith, Family, friends, happiness, honesty, jennifer woodard, laughter, life, Lindsey Beller, love, maya thompson, Neuroblastoma, Rockstar Ronan, sangria, strength, suzanne rauscher, tricia tinney, true friends, weekends, woody thompson
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn? That’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Sooooo, I made the mistake of watching the movie “7 pounds” tonight. I knew it was a bad idea from the start. Way too sad but I wanted to see if I would feel anything from watching it. I’ve kind of been freaking out that my medication is making me numb to everything. I don’t…
Treasure each day, because you don’t know how many you’re going to be given
There was a reason we didn’t start chemo this week. It was because we needed to be together this Thanksgiving as a family. It truly was one of the best Thanksgivings I’ve had in my life. Woody and I started off the day by making a big breakfast for the boys’ and Uncle Ron came…angels, anger, arizona, AZ, best friends, blessings, bullshit, Cancer, Chemotherapy, childhood cancer, Childhood Disease, Conditions and Diseases, doctors, dreams, Energy, faith, Family, friends, friendship, fun, Games, happiness, Health, honesty, life, love, maya thompson, Neuroblastoma, new york city, Parenting, Phoenix, Pink, reality, Rockstar Ronan, running, tears, Thanksgiving, the pretenders, truth, woody thompson
Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast
I feel a little like Alice in Wonderland. A little lost, scared, curious, brave, hopeful, determined, a champion, a dreamer and strong. A little like the Mad Hatter too. Crazy, funny, smart, and zany. And the White Queen, confident, gracious, and sassy. I relate to so many of these characters in this movie. I feel…a fighter, a hero, Alice in Wonderland, almost maya, angels, anger, arizona, AZ, best friends, blessings, brave, brothers, bullshit, Cancer, chelsea’s kitchen, children, dreams, drugs, faith, Family, friends, happiness, hopes, johnny depp, laughter, life, lost, maya thompson, Neuroblastoma, numb, Parenting, Phoenix, prayers, pureness, Rockstar Ronan, sassy, scared, tears, truth, United States, woody thompson
I love my friends!!! Spread the word!!
Hey all you KHS alumni! We are planning a very casual mini-reunion for ALL classes on Sunday, December 26th, 2010. If you’re in town for the holidays, come to the Silver Star in Longview around 7pm where we’ll all get together to catch up with old classmates and have a good time! See you there!…
A change of plans
Ronan’s counts are not high enough to start chemo this week. What does this mean?? It means a lot… his surgery date will now have to be changed, as well as our flight out to New York. Trying not to stress too much… everything happens for a reason, right?? We will now get to spend…
