No more rationing nausea meds

A prescription I need to help ease my constant nausea was finally available today. I’ve been struggling to get it filled correctly since we got home from our trip. I had been feeling desperate after rationing out the last of these critical pills to cover the week-long delay/error. Today’s #OneGoodThing was relief at finally getting my prescription…

Smooth infusion day

It was about as smooth of a day as I could have hoped, given that I was receiving my 11th chemo infusion treatment for Crohn’s Disease. Thanks to a combo of jet lag and nerves, I woke up early enough to take a seated shower without rushing, and then get back in bed to recover…

Starting to catch up

Mama and I have been appreciating the comforts of home these last few days, including our DVR, which recorded all of our favorite shows while we were away. Today we caught up on the season premieres of “This is Us,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “The Voice.” It was a good rest day full of great TV!…

Dolce far niente

After a very busy week of seeing friends and exploring Venice, Mama and I were exhausted and needed rest. Today was our recovery day. Thankfully, we’d already picked up a few groceries.
