hibernation

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed about blogging my Christmas. So I'm not going to right now. Let me just thank everyone who made it great. It was wonderful.

So my last early morning trip to the hospital was on New Years Eve. I promised myself I would shower that morning and wear something cute so the nurses could see what I used to look like. I didnt because it meant getting up 30 minutes earlier.

But they still love me. After they pulled the PICC line out (good news, the heart palpitations stopped when it came out, so it was doing something crazy to me) they sang me a graduation song which I bawled through. I just couldn't believe they were letting me go (with apparently good reason as I'm suppose to start my shots today and its not going to happen, I think I deserve a few days off). Hanging out with nurses has made me want to be one again. Its not likely, but I can dream.

I have to thank Jennie, Stephanie, Vicki and Cassie for the rides. Good times in that awful place.

Im so ready to wake up. My kids grew a whole month without me. I would crawl out of bed at 4 in the afternoon and Luke would run to me "mommy, you awake!!" Like it was a novelty to see me out of bed.

One of my new years resolutions is to blog more. Lots goes on every day when your awake.

I made it!!
This is a lame picture to match my lame blog. I feel too tired to think.

Alisa-

I think everyone will be so glad to see your blog. Most of us that do not know the day to day things going on for you look forward to hear your progress. I am glad that you were able to get the picc line out, I again think your a great person and we have no idea what you went through this past month. Can I say one thing- you look beautiful in the picture: I could not get up and go and look that great!
Thinking of you always!

I don't blame you for hibernating! I love you muscle shot! What sounds good to you for dinner tomorrow night?

Kallee said...

Alisa, I feel somewhat like a voyeur (gross, that's sounds so creepy :) watching your life through your blog. I've appreciated your blog and have cheered along with your highs and cried along with your lows. I echo what so many others have said and that is you are truly an amazing and inspiring person. Reading and hearing your experiences have helped me to appreciate life more. Thank you. I usually don't comment on blogs b/c I feel like I usually sound like a weirdo...however, I thought that your graduation from daily hospital trips deserved a congrats!!! You are always in our thoughts and prayers.

You are gorgeous Alisa - How I would love to look like you if this is called not getting ready! I am so glad to hear that everything has been going well for you and that you are done with the treatments. We continue to pray for your sweet family. Please call if you ever need anything.

Sonja said...

I'm glad the heart palpitations stopped. Also glad you made it through. Good job!

Oh Alisa, congratulations!!! You look amazing in that picture, you have held up so well through the month at the hospital. I am so happy for you to be done. Keep resting, it looks like it has done you VERY well :)

Alisa,
I came across this saying. I don't know if it will mean anything to you, but it speaks to my heart.

Sit quietly, doing nothing. Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.

Congrats, you look beautiful.
Love, Tiffany

Amber said...

Wow, you still look amazing and everything. Just wanted to let you know I'm rooting for you from afar. It's been years since we were really close, but I remember those years fondly and still look to you with nothing but admiration.

I guess I felt like Luke when I saw you on an outing to the park. We've all missed associating with you day to day.

Glad to see your blog again. I was starting to worry. Congratulation on getting to the next stage in your treatment. I hope it will go easier. 'Hibernation' describes exactly what I do on weekends!

Oh pashaw! You so look cute! :) It is hard to look cute at 4am, I admit, but you supersede that for sure! Your blog helps me be a better person, so just count this as your service to me. Thanks.

Love, Monique
