7 sticks with out hitting a vein....I'm finally willing. Time for a port.
And this morning, I heard once again that what I'm going through with IVIG treatment is just as intense is going through chemotherapy, sometimes with even more side effects. Yeah, I suppose that's true.
I tend to make light of the things that I'm going through, as I'm used to doing things on my own. But I'm increasingly learning that I don't need to do things alone. Those that view me as a burden can simply take a hike! That line of thinking is no longer welcome.
I'm very grateful to those of you who have helped to maintain normalcy for my daughter as I've walked this road, and to those who kept me company while I've received these difficult treatments which will continue for the foreseeable future... and to those of you who continue to reach out with loving support and kindness.
I was told by a doctor recently that this might be as good as it gets for me. I'm unwilling to accept that reality, as I continue fighting for healing! But I will say that I feel a depth of gratitude for how good I have felt this last few weeks, and I feel very hopeful for what lies ahead for me in the future!
