On With The Show

I'm still processing the last week. The trip to Disney was such a huge thing for us and so dear to me, it will be a while before it's really sunk in.
Not enough 'Thank Yous' in the world.

On the cancer fighting front- I have an appointment on February 9 in Dallas for my screening then getting my vaccine on Feb 14. So I will be in Texas for a week. I will probably be heading to Austin for the waiting days to visit with my friend Jamie. Love him.
I will be doing some calling on Tuesday to see if I can get in any earlier before I get a plane ticket or calling the ACS about the free flight. I've been getting increasingly uncomfortable in my lower abdomen and I can feel hardness and lumps when I push around it. It sucks because I hear a clock ticking and the cramping is kind of a constant reminder that the vaccine is one of the last hopes. I don't really know what I'll do if it doesn't work. Can't think that way but ugh, the discomfort is constant... Was through Disney but I refused to acknowledge with anything more than popping a pill.

I'm anxious to get this started- and I WISH I could get real numbers on how well the vaccine works. I know- just numbers- but it's something to lessen the unknown.

Well- I will have more concrete plans on Tuesday. And like a good blogger, I'll let you know!


  1. I think the sooner you get those vaccines the better Rachel, good luck to you sweetie. I am so glad you enjoyed Disney Land so much with your family and I am praying all will continue well for you......:-) Hugs

  2. Hi Rachel, I think of you and your family all the time! Great pics from Disney.

    Strong vibes coming your way, and thank you for sharing with all of us on the internet!
