Awoke early but that's OK because I felt good. No sick to my stomach, no headache and full of energy.
No shot today either and this will give my stomach a reprieve and maybe a chance to heal.
I got the 2 oldest kids up, they went into their morning routine and I drove them to the station so they could go to school. My youngest had today and tomorrow off for parent-teacher conferences. It was 7:45 and I had energy so I texted Caroline about a walk at 8:15. YES, her and Monica would come and get me. THANKS GIRLS.
But first I needed to take a quick shower. The hair was falling out in droves even though I have thick hair. I lightly blow dried it and put in the hair gel to get my mini Mohawk in place and my hands were covered in so much hair it was like gorilla hands. So that freaks me out a bit and I start tugging at it. Even bigger clumps are coming out but you can't see it yet because my hair is so thick. There is hair everywhere. Time to shave it sooner than later.....
The walk was invigorating and I can't believe how lucky I am to feel so good. Back home we got ready for the days activities. A telephone conference with the teacher for my youngest. Then right after that a drive into Gamla Stan (the Old Town of Stockholm) for lunch with Mia and then a walk around town. We needed to drive and that was fun to find a parking place in town near where we were going. We finally parked about a half mile away and walked in the brisk wind and sunny day. Quite good actually.
We met Mia and had lunch at Cafe Kladdkakan. We laughed and enjoyed our food. It was great medicine. THANKS FOR LUNCH MIA.

Then it was off to pick up my hard drive that couldn't be repaired although I did get the name of another place that might be able to perform a miracle. And then the two older boys met us and got a ride home.
All through the day my friends are checking in on me and that keeps me focused. GRATEFUL.
Dinner was a hodgepodge of different foods, but it all tasted good. Now it is time for American football practice for my oldest and then some sleep tonight cause many "fun" things planned for tomorrow.
LOVED. GRATEFUL. FRIENDS. ENERGY. FEELING GOOD. KICKING CANCER'S ASS.
