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.

Really sick

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.
