Another trip up North to Check in
Tomorrow, Wednesday the 18th we travel up north to Darthmouth Hitchcock Hospital to check in with the Transplant doctor.
One of the issues with living with cancer, is the fact that I have to check in with doctors every so often to find out how I'm doing. I see a lot of doctors and they all want blood, I just show up and roll up my sleeve and give them blood. Wednesday, we have to be there for 9 am. In good weather, it's an hour and a half drive. In bad, a good 2 1/2 hours. So we leave early, get there for a bunch of blood work then wait a while to get the results, then talk and talk to the doctor's and parts of his team to see where I am and how I'm doing.
At the moment, we go up 4 times a year, I'm hopping I'm doing so well that he tells us we can drop that to 3 times a year. That would be nice.
In the meantime, we reflect on what the past year has given us. A lot of laughter, a lot of love, a lot of dotors, good friends, good food, good prayers and a lot of leaning on God to keep us going.
If you would, please, pray for us to have a good drive up, good results and a good drive back home after a long, emotional day up north.
