I slowly got better yesterday, and by today was doing well enough to go with the family!!! It was soooo cold! I went from being, like 70 degrees yesterday and crashed down to the 40's. Whew! But I got to be there. I got to snuggle with my niece. I got to hear all 4 of my nephews running around trying to beat the crap out of each other. Ahhhh.. family:) It was priceless. We got to have John's and my friend Paul out for his second annual Morgan family Thanksgiving brew-haha. I had to lay down for a little after we ate, but for the most part I was fine. And I was told by at least 4 different family members that I looked way hotter than they remember ever seeing me. BONUS!! I'll take a compliment like that! (Cancer is known for doing that right? No? No? Just me?)
I was so worried I wouldn't be able to go. This was the sickest I've felt since I got swine flu last year. There is no natural reason I should have recovered as fast as I did. Thank you God!
John and I just got home, so he and my hot-self are going to watch a movie in bed.

This week has been a week of extremes. Wednesday was the worst pain I've been in so far, the weekend has been the best after chemo time I've had so far, and now, starting yesterday, I am the sickest I have been so far. It is like my post-chemo days have gotten switched, and I'm feeling like it is the day after, but much worse. Yesterday, last night, and today I have been fighting a fever. This morning, I had the quintessential scene of laying on the bathroom floor in front of the toilet. I had to post-pone my PET scan, which I really didn't want to do. Right now, I'm wondering if I am even going to be able to make it out with my family for Thanksgiving. It is going to really suck if I can't. Thanksgiving, in my opinion, is absolute sacred Morgan time. It is always the time when we have the whole clan together. Please pray that this fever and this nausea go away. I feel horrible.
