That’s just fabulous.

Today has been fabulous. Fabulous in the sense, that never before the big HL (this is my new slang for the hodgkins lymphoma) would have I thought today was fabulous, or even really noteworthy.  But today, I attended 2 classes, 1 study group session, completed 1 negotiation, did 2 1/2 assignments, ate three REAL meals, basked in the sunlight of spring and patted a fabulous new fury friend (shout out to Peepers the greyhound). It’s been a good day. I’ve felt full of energy and optimism (despite my first final being only 27 days away). Also, finally after a month of spewing lymphatic fluid my biopsy site, looks like it wants to actually try and heal! These are my small victories.

I know there will be days ahead when I will not feel this good. But I think its important for me to appreciate these days where I teeter on the edge of feeling like a superwoman, and I chuckle and say “Hey body and stupid HL take that!” I recognize I cannot push my body further than it should go, but must treat my down cycles gingerly but when I am not feeling that low, I just want to go throughout the day fabulously and accomplish all those things on my to-do list that once seemed so perfunctory but now feel like  real achievement and I am proud of the fact I completed the list.  I am after all, if a daily bowel movement is now going to be noteworthy in my day, should not a full day of law school be too? Yes. And that’s just fabulous.

    I have always thought of you as fabulousness. Your fabulousness will sustain you, as it sustains those who love you. Rock on, fabulous, kind, sweet Erin.
