In looking at my last few posts, I am a little embarrassed. It’s true I have been feeling sad, scared, lonely and a little mad. This all sets me up to look ungrateful. Which I need to clarify that I am NOT. My life is full of many rich blessings. Although This past year and a half have been the most difficult time in my life, It has also been filled with some of the most amazing once in a lifetime moments. That’s how I have survived-moment by moment. I have witnessed miracles before my eyes, my family has learned the meaning of the word sacrifice and has received the blessings that come with it, and we are reminded on a daily basis what really matters in life.
Still no answer from the insurance company. Bone marrow team tried Thursday and Friday to get in touch with someone from the insurance company to get some answers but seems NO phone calls were returned.
Part of Kristen’s bone marrow biopsy results were in…Still in REMISSION. YEAH!
Last year as Kristen was finishing up her 7 months of intense chemotherapy, I told my family that as soon as she had her strength back we were all going to Disneyland. It took months. Just as the doctors said it would. Finally in October her blood counts looked good. She was strong and it was finally time to plan the trip. We made plans to leave November 1st. The hotels were booked and the plans made.
October 12th my dad died unexpectedly. Very unexpectedly. No one felt much like a party. We decided it would be best to postpone our Disneyland trip until February. Funny how things turn out. The day we were supposed to be in Disneyland we were in the hospital with Kristen as she was once again getting a bone marrow biopsy to confirm that leukemia was once again taking over her sweet little body.
This past week my family went to Disneyland… Without Kristen and I. So I thought I would throw myself a little pity party.
Now... I’m over it.
Kristen is home for a few more days.
Kristen is happy.
Life is good.
