So - what to do about the possibility of losing everything? Print it! Do you know how many pages this thing is? Wow. I spent days turning it all around, the very first, very scared blog entry right at the top and 315 full size 8.5 x 11 inch pages later I reached the last blog of the first four years! Now its all sorted and ready to print, apart from the need to design a front and back cover. I am going to print two - one for Steven and Laura and one for me. It's like a life story.... a really good one too.
Reading through some of my earlier blogs and then reading the blogs of other people that have not been as fortunate as Steven in his good response to his meds, makes me see how incredibly fortunate I have been and am. I have so much to be grateful for and apart from Steven's health my greatest blessing really has been the people I have met along the way these past four years. These are the people who stand with me, sometimes leading me, sometimes pushing me and always alongside me at the same time.
These amazing, strong, wonderful and incredible people are of my most firm friends - even if most of them I have not met and probably won't ever meet. I will always be deeply thankful to every one of you, I certainly could not have done this without you. It really does "take a village".
Talking about cml and tests and things..... Steven's next blood draw is on the 27th of this month. The time has whizzed by so incredibly fast again but its always such a breath of fresh air to call OHSU to order the kit. The people who work there are amazing - I always get off the phone with them with a smile on my face, sending them happy thoughts. And this time the wait for the results will be a little bit longer for me. Steven will get them on time but this time I will be quite happy to wait the extra couple of weeks..... why?
Love and light
