Summer is gone, and I look forward to Fall.
The Labor Day weekend went too quickly, but I felt that I was able to catch up on some rest and sleep; it was the official end of summer and the start of Fall. Labor Day signaled a couple things: the beginning of Fall and the first day of school. Of course, it also meant busier schedule for me.
While driving on Sunday, I saw the first sign of Fall - leaves have started to fall and are scattered in the neighborhood. I sighed. It was a sigh of relief because the summer heat took a toll on my health. Perhaps with the cooler temperatures, I can recuperate. I'd say September will be a month to regain my strength, as I prepare for D-day for October, a two day trip to NIH for tests and another bone marrow biopsy. This marks the end of my first year in treatment. Gladly, I have regained my hair. I am scared yet I can't wait to get the biopsy out of the way. I really don't know when will this journey with AA end; I am getting tired of it.
With September here, I can't help but think about Christmas. After all, it's my favorite time of the year. Perhaps Santa will bring me a bag of perfect health this year.
I remain grateful and hopeful.
