Dear 11 Fucking Months. I think I hate you.
Ronan. This solitude thing… it’s alright. It’s necessary. I’m doing it as much as possible. As much as I can for still being among the living, while really being dead. That’s what I feel like lately. It’s o.k. It’s part of this process for me.

30 day challenge of mother fucking madness
Ronan. The 30 day yoga challenge. I have a friend who is crazy enough and actually did this. Kudos to D. She is crazy in all the best ways. And she loves her yoga. I do not love yoga.

Why hello beautiful boy
Today was actually a wonderful day. Wonderful as in we only had to go to the clinic for the standard blood tests and to have Ronan’s broviac dressing changed. We got to see our favorite nurse, Sharon, which is always a treat.

I get by with a little help from my friends
There is no better way to start a Sunday morning than meeting up with my girlfriends at Taylor’s for breakfast. Tricia, Bethany, Fernanda, and Stacy all came prepared with everything we needed to talk about as far as getting things in the works for transplant. These women, I swear could rule the world.

MRI, CT, and Pet scan results…. kind of
After what seemed like the longest day ever; we returned home around 7:30 tonight. Ronan insisted we stop at CPK for pizza so we met Woody for dinner. I ate my one meal of the day, Ronan didn’t eat a thing and ended up just making me hold him while I ate.

An old soul
Ronan had his clinic visit this morning. His levels have dropped just as we were expecting. We are so used to this chemo thing now that we know where his counts will be. What I didn’t expect wash his platelet counts to be so low. They were 10,000 today.

Magic Medicine… Day 2 Round 6
I so needed to take a little break from the hospital today. Ronan is still refusing to get out of bed so we spent the morning playing; I tried my best to entertain him. Our favorite nurse, Sharon, came to do Ronan’s dressing change. He did pretty well with it but at one point I…angels, anger, arizona, AZ, best friends, bullshit, Cancer, Chemotherapy, childhood cancer, Childhood Disease, Conditions and Diseases, doctors, Dr. Kushner, Dr. La Quaglia, Energy, faith, Family, Fred’s team, friends, fuck you, hope, iPad, isolation, iTunes, jake gyllenhaal, love, mom’s, Neuroblastoma, new york city, New York City Marathon, New York Miss Macy, Paul Frank, Phoenix, Purple, Rockstar Ronan, sadness, Sarah Tinney, sloan kettering, Small Paul, Star Wars, stem cell transplant, tears, United States, US Weekly, woody thompson
