Brain Tumor

Today I’m waiting to hear if I qualify for co-pay assist/free drug program on my chemo meds and then I can actually order them. It feels chaotic, but it’s being handled by CVS Specialty, my oncology nurses, social workers. They picked up everything for me; it’s just that I get so tired of the phone ringing and talking about medicine and insurance.

Super moon-faced from the steroids, but they’re keeping me strong enough to get up & walk around a little. Turned around in place without clutching the walker while I brushed my teeth this morning too. So my balance is improving, and that makes me happy…even despite drugs that make me constantly feel like I’m sliding off the planet.

Mom’s making sure I get in my fruits & veggies and keeping me fed. My hair is growing so fast I’m already contemplating my next buzz cut!

Dad’s making lame dad jokes, letting Boomer out for business midday, helping me with the bills, and going to help us do our taxes.

Dan comes back from a couple of days of doing chores tomorrow, and I’m looking forward to seeing his sunshiny face. I won’t be going home for several weeks, but he’s cleaning and polishing floors so when I do get to go home everything will be sparkly and comfortable.

Best. Husband. Ever. (I’ll probably be saying that a lot, just FYI.)

Boomer & Izzy are being cared for by Ryan & Melanie. And I get daily reports and pictures. Dan & I feel sorry for our kittphews while a strange dog & cat crash at their pad, but we will find a way to make it up to them.
