I normally do lesson plans while I'm at chemo, but today I'm updating my blog instead!!
I rescheduled my chemo (#12 - four more to go after today!) from yesterday to today, for two reasons:
1. So I could complete my work day/check-out on the same day as everyone else. Finding people after they have gone home for the summer is challenging.
2. So Chris and I could celebrate our anniversary without chemo-aftermath limiting the evening.
So upon leaving school at noon, I picked up Jimmy Johns (#yummy), watched the latest Game of Thrones episode (#dragon #whoa), took a nap (#firstsummersnooze), and went out to dinner and to see the Flogging Molly concert at the Crossroads with Superman (#datenight #3rdanniversary #love).
Great kick-off to the summer. Such a great concert. Superman is a long time Flogging Molly fan, but this was my first time listening to them. They were super fun! And I made it (barely) through the evening. Definitely collapsed exhausted in the car after the concert was over. I commented awhile back about how going out to see live music is something I can't do anymore. I'm very pleased that I'm able to do that again (though challenging). I'm pushing through this time and doing great. Remaining positive. Living 'normal' life when I can. My days are definitely up and down, but generally doing awesome!
My nurse today commented on my blood pressure being lower than normal and was mildly concerned and asked questions. I said, "Well. Today is my first day of summer vacation. So.....?"
