Wise Owl says…
Chins Up Buttercups
“So! Much! Fun!” Thalia took great joy in delivering cookie creations to Typist’s care team.
Cal’s expression was in direct contrast to Tal’s… because of a different delivery. Nurse Angel Allie’s stat sheet showed Typist’s blood struck out this week — in ugly form.
Nia looked at Cal like she was a mistake in need of correction. She caught herself before saying something she’d regret. She took one deep inhale and released it like a slow, arching lob toward home plate. “It’s okay Cal. Do you think there might be benefits of not receiving treatment this week? Like we’ll feel great at Saturday’s wedding dance? And maybe the break is making space to avoid ugly side effects like neuropathy?” She glanced at a patient who had her hands and feet in pans of ice. “Can we have faith that there is wisdom at work beyond what we can see?”
Thalia tickled Cal’s shoulder. “Angel Nurse Lisa suggests thinking of the fail as a birthday present — another full week of feeling good!”
A word from Typist:
Alas, our collective prayers for meaty blood were not fulfilled this week. I DO have faith that all shall be well. There is wisdom at work beyond our limited vision.
The next step is receiving medication to boost my bone marrow’s white cell production. As I understand it, I am waiting for my oncologist to provide a plan that the insurance company will approve.
Life is an adventure!
