Laughter is the Best Medicine Sometimes

When they told me I could "probably" go home the next day, I knew I had to find a way to send off in style. I had spent the first 3 days leaving bed only to walk 2 feet to the bathroom. The last two I had enough energy to sit in my side chair for one of my meals. But really, I got winded doing either. So this was going to be an ambitious undertaking. 

Safety first. I did not want to slip and fall while so close to my release. 

Then I had to put my game face on. 



Then I needed to take a break to let my heart rate recover after a coughing jag. 
And now....
Watch me nae, nae


My legs were definitely stanky by then. I did this after watching the video twice and trying it once. I apologize to those who were more offended than amused. Well, no I don't but I thought I'd say that. I do apologize for the quality of the video. 

Happily I was released from the hospital the next day as planned. This was my second time in the hospital in just over 2 weeks, probably the same infection, but I was at different stages in recovery from my last chemo so my body's response changed each time. This did delay my chemo since I was in the hospital when it had been scheduled. They are trying to get me in next week, putting me 1.5 weeks behind. This will also delay surgery which sucks. I need to wait to hear from the surgeon to know if this can still be done before Christmas.

I am having an absolutely shock and awe moment. I just came across your blog again and had NO IDEA that you were going through this. I am so sorry. I hope that you are doing better. I'm also so sorry that I haven't been a better cheering section.
Huge Cyber hug !
P.S. That Nae Nae dance ROCKED !

It's certainly been an adventure! It will get better and one day be normal again. But I wouldn't wish this on anyone.
I still refer people to your blog and read it again myself as the boys get older.
