It’s really so strange to have stepped out of life for 15 days..held up in a little cocoon that protects me and puts my constant worries at ease. This bit of time at home has been good so far and much needed. I am unbelievably tired and still have quite a bit of pain if I try and walk more than a small block. I keep feeling like it’s the beginning of May and am stunned to find out that it’s past the middle of the month!!!
With Angelo and my parents at my side today, I had my 4th Eribulin infusion. A few of the nurses commented how diffentent I looked compared to last week. I have to say that I barely remember being there myself. I remember kind of flopping over the chair, and a few girls from my group popping in to say hello. I told Ange today that I felt like a rag doll. I hobbled in on my cane, but I felt alert and ready. Received treatment quickly and we made our way home.
Once we got home and settled in, we ate dinner (thanks to Lisa and Jim) and watched a mindless movie. ( i fell asleep as usual) which brings me to now… About to swallow a million pills and get some rest..
I know Jen. I relate. It’s like what you wrote in 2008 about being shocked to find out some well-known celebrity gossip because you had stepped out of life for a year. No matter where you are, or how shocked you feel, we are here for you, loving and supporting you…

The cocoon has been just what you needed, but I understand how strange it is for life outside of it to keep chugging along. Wonderful that you got the Eribulin yesterday and that you’re surrounded by Ange and your parents. Sending you gobs of love this morning. XXXOOO

Hey honey – thinking of you and sending love. I can relate to what you wrote about time passing by without you really noticing. Its like feeling dropped back into daily life that somehow has gone on. Pretty surreal.
I’m glad you felt better while getting Eribulin this time, and I hope that it gets easier each time.
