You Got Plans for December 10th?

I do:)

That's when I'm COMING HOME!!!!


The boring stuff: mag level was great today (happy face!) but they aren't taking out my port until next Thursday (kinda sad face, but still happy face) juuuuuuust in case, all of my other blood work looks awesome so they're 'testing me' until this Thursday without IV fluids. I get paper shoved in my eyeballs again this Thursday and will see my Endocrinologist one last time tomorrow morning. My 100 day bone marrow biopsy is scheduled for next Tuesday, final powwow with Dr. DeLima and team next Thursday and then....AND THEN.....


Winding it down y'all! It's so hard to believe this is the bookend week to the week of testing in August. I say 'bookend' because it's not the end end, it's just mirroring all of that check-me-out stuff we did then, just after basically putting my body through a meat grinder... I plan on updating often this week, probably as often as I day waaaay back when because, well, paper in eyeballs is interesting stuff:)

Can't WAIT to see all of you in properly chilly PA:)

Much love y'all!!!


  1. Yay!!! YAY!!! YAy!!!

  3. Fantastic News Laura!!! I am so going to send extra prayers/juju/karma your way for the next week and a half.
    After Paper in the Eyes this Thursday, having the port taken out next Thursday sounds like an apt reward!!

    Much Love and Peace, CCA
