A few days ago was my birthday, with my leg problems coming and going, the endoscopy looked to be an odd way to celebrate. the night of my birthday had an early alarm wake up from my cell phone. Years ago when i started the third treatment i set a calendar event in hopes of success. it read one word: "Freedom."
It wasn't the way i wanted to begin my birthday. that hope crushing reminder of my consistent failures.
The endoscopy was not promising as some bleeding varices were banded. exhausted, and drugs running through my system from the endoscopy the next few days were a blur of familiar faces dropping by to take care of me. It reminded me what good friends i have.
I normally celebrate my birthday for about ten days, but this year i scaled it back to one party. the original reason why was because people didn't show up. this year i expected about 20 people, i was surprised and excited to see over forty of my friends in attendance. as i looked around i felt so lucky to have so many amazing friends all there for me. It was the best present i'd received in a while.
in other news, i am moving forward with steps to start treatment. my hope is for march which really means May, as it can take up to two months to be OKed for RX.
Also please join me and my amazing friends (or if you areone of my amazing friends and haven't registered, for free btw) on the SanDiego Liver Life Walk.
it's free until the end of the month.
and if you can't make it, that's okay, you can always donate. :)
