Forty-Nine higher ANC, Four thousand more platelets, Fighting Infections, & Fires...Day 43

Health Update: Hot dispatch from Froedtert Cancer Center Today:

  • New ANC is 651 (within reach of 700 for a first dose of a vaccine next week)

  • New Platelet Count is up to 15,000

  • This nasty ear infection seems intent on sticking around, and has invited its friend the sinus infection to take up residence as well. They are trying some new antibiotics (that are dripping in via my port as we speak)

  • I've been reminded again (as if its not constantly on my mind) to avoid everyone, everything, and everywhere, so as to not get COVID - the irony of being told this in literally the only place I risk exposure - THIS DAMN HOSPITAL!

  • I'll come back on Thursday to see an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist, and make sure the new antibiotics are getting rid of this stubborn issue!

  • Fingers crossed, I'll be celebrating SHOT #1 (Repeat Addition) next Monday!!!

2022 already feels different on the shores of Friess Lake...I'm able to do more for myself, and have had energy to begin a more aggressive rebuilding of strength. 30 minutes on the peloton each day, and another 30-45 minutes of outdoor walking in the FRIGID Wisconsin outdoors are what's currently keeping me busy, and hopefully on the path to regaining the endurance necessary to return to more normal life.

We've also launched in to official WEDDING PLANNING for late summer 2022! More on that topic soon!


What's Entertaining Us:


Movies:

The worst person in the world - PHENOMENAL!!!!!

Tender Bar a 2nd time with my parents - that good!

TV:

Finished Emily in Paris (I want to not like it, but I kinda love it for what it is)

Jeopardy - GO AMY GO! We are huge Amy Schneider fans in this house - her winning streak is incredible.


Books:

WILL - The Will Smith Autobiography - really enjoy it.

Do Nothing: How to Break Away from Overworking, Overdoing, and Underlining (I'll let you know how well this 2022 self-improvement investment works out).


Fires:

Lots of fires & if you're going to have fires...you might as well make SMORES :)


Cooking:

If not trips to Starbucks are in the cards...Homemade Eggbites will have to do!








What I'm Grateful For:


  • My Fiance has been with me every single day for 49 days, and I'm still so excited to marry him :)

  • I'm nearing the half-way mark of this initial period of recovery...I can start to see the finish line

  • There is a whole life of big possibility out there, and its up to me to make the new found health on the other end of this journey worth it in all ways!!!

  • Making time to appreciate the Sunset EVERY EVENING

Sounds like a great start to the New Year, Jessy! Dare I say my favorite part had something to do with the phrase summer wedding?
