Today was a good day. The last few days have been good days actually. A lot of days haven’t felt that way lately.
Steve and I went out and enjoyed some food, beer on the patio and some lovely sunshine. When we were walking home we stumbled upon an abandoned skipping rope. I haven’t jumped rope in what feels like a lifetime. So naturally I needed to do so once more. lol It was a silly, fun time! And then we walked home through the forest and got bit by some mosquitos. But it was all worth it. It was a beautiful day to Get Up!
Steve is the one that keeps me going – keeps pushing me to get up and keep moving forward. It’s the ones that support and lift me up that make it a little easier. 🙂
From the beginning of my brain tumour journey, it’s been the Hamilton group of hospitals that has been there every step of the way – Starting with my surgery at Hamilton General Hospital. Then Juravinski Cancer Centre – which especially holds a dear place in my heart. It’s where a majority of my treatment has taken place – where I have met and been treated by the most incredible, kind, caring medical staff.
I didn’t know who the Juravinskis were – Just that there was a cancer centre named after them – My amazing cancer centre. And then today I saw this article and video. They are donating even more! I feel honoured and so very blessed that I have been able to receive my treatment at this special group of hospitals. The doctors and nurses I have encountered make me believe in humanity and that there will always be hope to carry on.
Thank you to Charles and Margaret Juravinski!
Just wanted to let you know – My MRI date did get pushed forward – it is scheduled for next Monday, the 20th. It’s been a rough week and a half or so. Like I’ve mentioned before, I find the time before an upcoming MRI to be difficult both mentally and emotionally. It’s a time where I can’t hear about or think about anything. My mind just kind of shuts off. I forget about dreams and hopes, but can’t stop thinking about dreams and hopes. Steve and I have done again what we’ve done before pre-MRI – a little time together. Watching a movie that I’ve always wanted to see – catching up on our favourite shows – taking walks and looking around – re-reading the private thoughts and songs I’ve written down through the years. Still hoping and imagining and dreaming.
