That's right! I was discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, late Saturday afternoon after receiving my NEW chemo 'joy juice'--it seems that the one I was taking for the past 6 weeks wasn't doing what it was supposed to do.
My four day stay at the hospital went very quickly because of the numerous family and friend "advocates" that joined me during the many visits from the health professionals, (including but not limited to MDs, oncologists, nurses, hospitalists, social workers, nutritionists, clinical partners, nurses, and the surgeon with the blue eyes. Opps, I forgot, AND the excellent folks that took blood samples on a very regular basis, starting at 5 in the morning. Yeah, really!)
Now back to my "Advocates" These are the dear family members and friends that wanted only the best for me. While it began with Toni taking me to ER, and Eric and Adrienne showing up shortly after, the calls and visits really made me feel like I was on a four-day cruise.
Right! We'll call it "The Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Four-Day Cruise for Life Improvement!"
So to you, my family and friends -- Your love, generosity, and actions continues to help me get AND stay emotionally and physically strong and healthy. I thank you dearly.
