Great week

This week has gone great.  No side effects and I'm excited to be on this treatment.  Monday the 27th will be my second and final week of the study.  One more 11+ hour day and one more week of daily blood draws then I am finished and will begin taking the drug at home.  I look forward to receiving the full dose and not having daily blood draws.  A small price to pay for getting what I want, but I'll still be happy to not have a daily poke.

Last Monday my good friend Claudia came to doctor's office and brought me lunch and stayed with me for 4 hours.  We had vegan chili and a salad.  Oh and she made me celebration cookies.  (She's a dessert chef ya know.  Check her out - http://www.roomfordessertonline.com/ )  Her celebration cookes are the best in the whole world!!  Teya thinks so as well.  Lunch was terrific, but her company was fantastic.  Thanks Claudia!!  You are such a great friend and I am so blessed to have you in my life.  You can make me laugh like no one else and your stength empowers me to be a better leader for myself.  Thanks for everything!

Ok, Teya and I are going to make some Christmas cookies.  I'll post some pictures once were finished.

Happy Holidays everyone!
