Good news, friends. I had infusion #6 this morning, which means I'm halfway through chemo! I'm feeling well and life has settled into a new normal of sorts. I'm so grateful for all your support, and for these powerful treatments!
Along with celebrating #IndependentBookstoreDay yesterday, I got vaccine number 2 and am feeling good. Obviously I had to wear the vaccine themed mask my sister got me! Amazingly, my doctor said it was fine for me to get vaccinated in the midst of chemo!
Happy #IndependentBookstoreDay! What a treat to make my first in-person visit to @RedBalloonBooks in more than a year and to see owner Holly and all the wonderful booksellers! And to bring home an armload of books! 📚
Proud mama moment: My 10yo had to do a research project and essay about a notable Black figure. The teacher had a list of ideas but said kids could also pick someone else. So my kid chose...Ernest Everett Just, who he knows from @melinawriter's THE VAST WONDER OF THE WORLD. 1/2
Everyone at @lernerbooks has been so supportive, as have family, friends, and neighbors. My sister is an internist at a clinic and keeps wanting to buy me things, such as these adorable masks, but the best thing she does is to read my lab reports and explain them!
The diagnosis process was stressful and involved SO MUCH WAITING, but I was able to keep doing all my usual activities, so that was a big help. My boys are always happy to keep me very busy!
