Everything is truly day to day. My spirits are good. So platelets are 24 down from 38 Friday which means no port surgery. I will get 2 doses of neupogen over mon/tues and then 3pm chemo weds. No sick visitors and vigilant hand washing are nurses orders due to low neutrophils (infection fighting cells)
When you love life as I do the bucket list remains long so I hope you and my family will hit some of these and think of me when you are there. I hope to be there in spirit. Here we go:
the Dolomites in summer for hiking and biking
a safari in Bostwana
Norway in the summer
Croatia, Vienna and Salzburg, Wengen and Kandersteg in Switzerland, Florence, the explora collection in Chile, Little Dix Bay renovated (oh Im so happy I kayaked into that bay in January but want to get back there)
dunton hot springs
hiking mt Whitney with kids or more of the john Muir trail
How lucky we are that in SF standing at Crissy Field or climbing mt tam or Tennessee valley or Pt Reyes counts too! And that I have done extensively and happily
Im feeling ok today a few sparks of beaches but otherwise good. I will keep singing
how can you ever say you’ve done enough? I wanted to see my kids graduate from every level, meet their lovers, watch them fall in love and marry and build a life. I know, thanks to their great dad and the village and family around them that they will do so well but fuck I’m so mad to miss it.
Please keep giving back to the things that will make this world better for our kids Listen to your body for health and your mind for its dreams.
