Only 2 more notches!

I have only 2 more "levels" to drop down to until we can possibly turn my Zofran pump off! We just turned it down to 20mg/day, and Friday if I still feel okay (fingers crossed!), we'll drop it to 16mg/day. Then, once I get to 12mg/day and still feel okay, we can turn the pump off! Then, ideally, I'll still feel okay with the pump off and then we can get the PICC line out!!!

Now, I have been SO thankful for the picc line because it's given me some sense of normalcy, but I'm SOO ready to have it OUT! To be able to shower with out covering my arm, to be able to sleep with out tubes coming out of me - I'm so ready!!! So, hopefully soon!!!

Tuesday Morning

It's a chilly Tuesday morning, and Grant and I are snuggled on the couch, sharing a cinnamon-raisin bagel. (He especially likes the raisin bits!) Grant woke up this morning singing "e-i-e-i-e", his version of Old Macdonald.
