and despite my awesome response to Sprycel, have decided to try and change my medication, when I return from Europe.
The good/bad news is that I have a pretty good effusion setting up shop in my left lung (no surprise) so that means that I get another Sprycel break! Whoo Hoo! Headed to Paris and off all TKI’s for at least a week.
I remember the very first time that I travelled after being diagnosed; I was terrified that something may go wrong and that I would end up in the hospital, wherever I may be. (Jesi knows all about that) Since then, I have been traveling on a fairly consistent basis, and at worst, I have needed down days to recover; we have built these expected days, into our itinerary, even though I HOPE to not need them.
Sitting here in the airport is both exciting and nerve wracking! I have never been to Europe and never been so far, and so long, away from home! I must be crazy, for sure!
Thus far, everything has gone smoothly; rental car returned right on time, and made it to the airport an hour before we expected.Thank you LA traffic!
Norwegian check-in was pretty easy, and I highly recommend taking the wheelchair option to the gate; the security line was forever long, and would have wiped me out before I even got started. It is the very first time that I have requested a wheelchair, and even though it made me feel a bit silly, I am glad that I got over myself and took the ride!
I will continue to be mindful of not only my surroundings, but of my own limits too, this will NOT be easy! Lol But I promise to try.
Bon jour for now, pray for a safe flight and that we find our hotel!
