Living an Attitude of Gratitude

Day 976

Today I am thankful:

For the nurses at the Oncology center infusion room; they are always overworked but always have time to answer questions or share a joke. And some of the patients are quite cranky so I admire the nurses even more for keeping an even temper.

Because all the pain from the Neupogen was (maybe) worth it because my latest white count was excellent.

Because having a 3 week break was a good thing; my blood work is better than I’ve seen it in a long time.

  1. I’m so glad to hear all of this! Great white count, graeat blood work, great nurses…words just don’t seem to articulate my rejoicing and gratitude. My heart is very glad to hear all of this xoxoxoxoxo

    • Me, too. I’m back to being optimistic. I’m sure the 3-week break had a lot to do with that. 😀

      • I’m sure it did…it must have helped your morale to feel how good you can feel when you’re not on the chemo…to know that much of the unwellness comes from the chemo and side effects of all the different meds you have to take.I find that very hopeful. And the fact that your blood work and white count fared so well after the break is very hopeful!

      • Yes, it is. We’ll see how I feel by Thursday; I’m prepared for all the side effects. 😀

  2. Ruth … This is just full of good news! Wow!!!! Then you are feeling better, too? There are really no words …only yours. They say it all. I have this silly smile on my face. I will admit. I was a bit worried. Thought I felt something .. And perhaps I did. But it was Good. Not Bad. Will there be more breaks for you, then?

    The nurses are angels, aren’t they? How do they do it? I hope that they know how very very important they are. I remember. I will never forget the nurses. The ones who lightened our day. And then, those that cried with us. And hugged us. All of us. I mean … We are not alone in a difficulties and losses. But, of course, there are many that get well and go home,strengthened. As you have this time. And so they,too, gather strength and hope and belief in what they do every day….


  3. And you are back being optimistic and hopeful!!!! Well, that is a big step toward your recovery right there. Even tho, it is ok to loose hope or doubt, at least. I mean the way to health and recovery is a rocky road any time, any day. But now you are in the saddle again!!!!! 😀😛😀
