Here we are seven months into being diagnosed and a day shy of eleven weeks post transplant and we are still figuring out what works and what doesnt. Thankfully, Jen hasn’t been admitted to the hospital now for almost two weeks. But she has been struggling with having her steroids decreased. But we have found between a bendryl and a pain med, she is able to get relief.
Now on to something I must share. On our drive back, Jen shared a few of her fears. She spoke of her high school graduation party and her disapointment in not having any classmates attend. She said she fears her party in July will be a huge disapointment and few will go. Please do not disapoint her!
Everyone is welcome. Meals will be from 4-6pm but if you don’t want to purchase a meal, there will be activities following. The event is being ran as a fundraiser for her (as she will not be able to work for a very long time) but also will have Be The Match on hand, the corn hole tournament is to benefit the James and we also will be doing a karoke contest to help two other families in Putnam County who are battling blood cancers. This is very important to Jen and I don’t want her to be disapointed. She has had so much disapointment in the last several months, surely she deserves to feel some joy and love.
For more about her party on July 22, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I will be happy to send you information.
