Playing keep away. Seriously.

Thermometers aren't intimidating. Unless your significant other is holding it making this face and holding instructions that read.. well, you can take a look below.

Now needles aren't the worst, but they're the worst. There were the IV and daily blood draws from new pricks each morning at the hospital, but the ones that left the, let's say, biggest impression = the blood thinner shots. Find a spot of fat in your belly and plug that baby in. Now that I'm home temporarily as we wait for the final diagnosis, I have to give myself that shot. That's damn near impossible for me to even entertain so the nurse "trained" my mom and fiance. 

By train I mean... demonstrated via pen on a stuffed animal. Sooooo...suffice it to say I was not the most assured tonight on this whole family-playing-nurse thing. 

Well, I'm happy to report that I'm posting this after the injection. We live to try this again in 12 hours lol (this is a 2x/day shot).

I apologize for the spotty posting. I find that the days are still blurring together. I get hit with so much lethargy and tiredness so suddenly. This also means that I take longer to respond to people but your messages, all of them, are truly, truly uplifting. Sank yew :).

You know what else is uplifting? 

HOME-COOKED FOOD. YAS.

 LOTS OF TAIWANESE VEGGIES. SWEET POTATOES. BEEF STEW. EGG.  ERR'THANG.

Ok... time for bed again. This waiting game is NEARLY OVER. Nearly. Nearly isn't enough. I have an appointment Thursday with a lymphoma specialist and THAT is when I'm supposed to really know what I am up against so I will have more to say then.

What I am hoping now is to better this blog and actually share it more actively. I want my story and truth to not just update all the people who care about me (big hugs to you all) , but to reach those who might be feeling something similar to me. Certain events in life just shake you to the core. Cancer, another disease or illness, loss, anything. 

Till next time.
