This week is somewhat of a reprieve for me. I only had to go in on Monday. Luckily my hemoglobin and platelets were finally high enough I don’t have to go back for more count checks this week. As much as I love Karmanos and what they’ve done for me, it’s a nice break. 

With that said it doesn’t always mean I feel the greatest. Today is one of those days. I’ve felt very lightheaded when I stand. I made eggs this morning sitting in a chair. I find ways around it. Almost a week later and I’m still being spoiled with birthday surprises. Today in the mail I received a card and Blarney Stone from someone in Ireland. Even though this may not be how I wanted to celebrate my birthday this year, I have never felt more loved and cared for.
