Ready or Not

"You must be really excited about going home," people say. I think so. There are times when tears come to my eyes and I look forward but sometimes, I sit still, almost immobilized with mixed feelings. Katie in Patient and Family Resources understood completely. "Well, you spent a lot of time and energy here. You waged a war here," she paused. "You're right," I agreed. "And you had a lot of battalion," She laughed and I laughed too thinking about my kids, all of whom she had met. "And, I hope that includes all of us too," she added. The battalion includes so many. I was cared for in this place. My experience of bone marrow transplant is life giving and life changing.
