Today was Vinny’s 3 year Dr appointment. First time he was measured standing up and first time having his blood pressure taken. He’s getting so big! He’s 40” tall putting him in the 97th percentile for height 😳 When he was getting his BP taken he said, “Look! This is my fitbit!” Ha! #3yearsold#sobigsofast
Spent the morning checking in with my doctor but didn't get my test results yet to find out my tumor counts for the month. I'm sure they went up a little bit, based on my other numbers I did find out today. But that's ok. Some months I have higher tumor counts and others they are lower. I try not to let the numbers get me down and finding this local, handmade beeswax candle and shopping at the local market inside the medical center certainly brightened my mood! Giant yellow pine cone that smells like honey along with the yellow leaves of fall has me all sorts of happy, no matter what the test results are. I find out Monday, but I won't worry about it either way, just do my best to stay healthy and happy like I always do. Living with stage iv cancer has become normal to me, as weird as it sounds. I don't know how long I'll feel healthy but I can still be myself and do many of the things I love to do (not all, because my spine is still full of holes, but for the most part) and be the mama my kids deserve. Being an honest human is tough work because it means being honest with yourself first and we often live in states of denial just to get by. My doc visits and medications and test results are a touch point for me to be honest about my health. But it's not the end of the story. I decide who I am at the end of the day; I'm not the sum of the things I accomplish and I can't find myself solely in the context of my relationships, it's the light inside that I choose to connect with and radiate outward. So today and all days, let's shine on. For this small, precious amount of time we are lucky enough to be on this planet let's smile at each other and be kind and shop local and be honest humans. Be the light.

So there's quite a few people who would rather I remain silent on what's happening in my life and put on a false pretence of happiness and gaiety. I'm not that kind of person, because a lot of people I'm friends with/ who follow me go through similar issues and therefore relate to what I experience. I will not stay silent like my GP and even my mother have tried to make me do. I'm having a horrific time trying to get my morphine to get this new pain under control. I won't name names but apparently "I enjoy coming to hospital and have nothing better to do". Just because I put on a brave face and deal with my issues with courage, does not mean I enjoy being here. I need to be at home, resting and spending time with Jake on his day off and with our kitties. I do NOT want to be in a noisy, loud, uncomfortable, painful bed. This is a means to an end, and the ONLY way to get the correct dosage of morphine. So thank you to those who have supported me, and continue to do so. And to the rest of you who think I have nothing better to do and want me to silently suffer, how about you find something better to do with your life than focus on what I'm doing? ☺ #chronic#chroniclife#chronicpain#chronicallyill#chronicfatigue#chronicillness#pain#doctorvisit#hospital#shaming#intersectionality#wheelchairbarbie#intersectionalfeminism#disabled

Off to the doctors, Theo has a sprained ankle and big sis is taking care of him! She is asking all the questions: “will he get an injection?” And calms him down, when the doctor is checking him. #doctorvisit#bigsister#chaparone
