Today I am grateful for:

  1. My insurance. Yes, the healthcare system in this country is both complex and cruel, but I lucked out and found the best care I could for my budget. I can’t say enough good things about them and the way they take care of me. I hope for Medicare for all one day, but I hope I get to keep working with the nurses and doctors that have gotten me this far.
  2. Having the rest of the day to do nothing. I’m always really tired after these infusions and this time was worse than usual. I slept for hours afterward and didn’t feel a bit guilty for it. I needed it and the world let me have it. That’s a rare thing.
  3. My new evening walking time. It’s going to take some getting used too, but the neighborhood is a very different place at 5:00 PM than it is at 8:00 AM. I see more people and more activity now and that’s at the very least interesting.
