God saw you getting tired, a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered, ‘come with me’. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you fade away. Although we loved you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating your tender hands at rest, God took you home to prove to us, he only takes the best.

    I never thought I would have to write this but Harv lost his battle today. After about a year (knowingly for 9 months), Harv has been fighting hard!! There are no words to express how grueling and shocking the last few days have been. Harvey did all he could, but took a turn for the worst this past Saturday. He was so ready to rest and go home…

Just some thoughts I wrote about this time last year… I think I might need to start taking my own advice.

Here are some things I have learned this past year…

It is so important to have an amazing group of family and friends who loves and cares about you. New and old…

Never underestimate the power of survival, instinct and perseverance.

You are MUCH stronger than you think, and never say you can’t handle something. Because you can.

Be grateful for every opportunity that you are given, large or small and embrace it.

Determination and grit will get you anywhere.

Love yourself and your life because you are the first one that matters and the only one that you can count on.

Enjoy every moment of each day, travel, experience life.

Live what you love and good things will come.

Be happy, smile and celebrate often.

Vivere disce, cogita mori

Shit’s About to get Real Yo

#Election2012. A big FUCK.  …. moving on.

Here’s some real shiznit. Posts from CB. I try to reflect and read stuff back this time every year. Puts things in perspective and it’s always good to remember, whether it’s good stuff or bad stuff. Because being REAL and experiencing BS and horrible stuff is what molds us and makes us who we are. It’s not how you are in good times… it’s how you handle the bad ones.

How was this really my life two years ago? #bestwifeaward #yourstrongerthanyouthinkyouare #lovelife #viverediscecogitamori #livelife

Not much going on around here today. Harvey slept ALL day. I think he said about 5 words total. Lots of rest for the upcoming week. ANC came up to 290, highest yet. So we are making some progress on that end just have to hope that the Leukemia is not growing along with his counts. Just waiting for the week to get started…

Not the great news we are hoping for to start off the week… Harvey has blast cells in his blood that have started to show up. About 30% of his blood right now is blasts. So, no need for another bone marrow biopsy at this time (actually, that is the one piece of good news for Harv). We now know the reason for the slowness is because there was Leukemia there and they are crowding out the WBCs and Neutrophils. No decision has been made yet if he will be doing another round of induction or going right into transplant. But it is looking like most likely he will be able to recover a little, go home for a week or two and then come back and go right into transplant. The fact that he is going into the transplant with disease does increase the already high risks, and decrease the chances of the transplant working. So honestly the odds are not going to look good… not that they ever look good for a bone marrow/stem cell transplant patient. But there would also be increased risks doing another round of induction since he got so beat up the first time, and in that case would be even weaker going into the next step. So for now… not too many definites and real answers, we’ll have to see how the next week goes and plan from there. We did hear another story of a patient here, who was in her 50s and needed a transplant. She had a lot of complications and had about 90% blasts at the point going into transplant. They told her to go home for a few days… get her affairs in order, and that she had a 5-10% chance of making it through. So she said her goodbyes and hoped for the best. Transplant was over, and it turned out successful!! And she’s now in her 60’s, in remission for 10 years. So there are always those people who beat the odds! We all know Harv will be one of them…

Memory Lane Monday – Traveling with the Fam

In honor of the great family weekend that we just had.

Hahaha… and I just love this picture. Only because I know how hung over and miserable I was. Although I look smashingly fresh! I rolled in to the rents at midnight the night before a 4am wakeup call. Preeeeaaaaaty sure I had to get driven home from a Happy Hour – yes that probably started at 5:30pm. So needless to say my plane ride down to the Dominican Republic was awesome. Thankfully they encourage all day drinking in the DR. Score.

WORKOUT – 1 hour elliptical, yoga
