This intense desire to rewind the tape just happened. I was getting out of the shower and I got a glimpse of the other half of me, the one that existed before sarcoma. Could my other half be coming back?
Maybe it's just my imagination: because my port was taken out; I got two units of blood, and I gained some weight during my stay at the Manhattan hotel ;)- I mean at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.
... or maybe I am just getting another overdose of Murakami ;).
When I went to New York last Friday, I was planning to come back on the same day. However, since the train ride from Providence to Penn Station is long, over three and a half hours each way, I grabbed two books before I left the house - Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami and Viruses, Plagues & History by Michael Oldstone. I am glad I did. Considering the nature of my hospitalization (a sticky bacteria called Enterobacter Cloace), you might guess why one of the books was not touched.
Here are some photos of my famous blue robe and my Michelle.
We could not stop smiling. Yes, I was hospitalized but we both got Fantastic news from the scans we did on Friday. Michelle had two surgeries this summer and now has NO signs of her spindle cell sarcoma and my liposarcomas are shrinking.
On the 15th floor of MSKCC there is wonderful terrace (any terrace inside a hospital is a wonderful thing). We got some sun before going to the Recreation room to make some dreamcatchers.
Michelle send me a photo of your dreamcatcher! I still have to finish mine!
Hugs to everyone from
Me on this side
