10th Shot done!

Did my tenth shot this past friday night.  Hit me really hard and really fast.  I was in OKC attending my fiance's corporate christmas party and then went to see my parents.  I slept the entire way home and most of saturday afternoon. My doctor's appointment friday went well.  He is sending me to my primary care doctor to get my neck, shoulder and back checked out. Concerned that I might have a compressed disk in my neck of a pinched nerve.  We are addressing the problem and getting it taken care of.  He heard that I quit smoking the very next day after my last appointment and stood to shake my hand.  That was very nice.  I really like him.  took more labs.  Platelettes and cbc.  wants to see how I am doing.  Suppoesed tpo have a new viral load check on the 8th.  No doctors appointment, just blood work. The ministry christmas party was today, and of course I'm on call again at work.  Had to leave around 10am and work on a water break.  We got it done and I was back at the party by 130.  Had a great time.   I was up until 3am this morning. baking cookies, making rice crispy treats for the party and of course wrapping christmas gifts for my loved ones.  I love christmas.  I want to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for all your prayers and encouraging words and inspiration.  You are making this treatment so much more bearable...especially knowing that I am not doing this alone.  You all have touched my heart. Be sweet to each other, let your loved ones know that you love them dearly everyday and have a great Christmas  together.  You only live once. Merry Christmas everyone.  Lets all have a great new year.
