I’m writing from my hospital stay at City Of Hope which began 4 days ago when a virus got the best of my Immune System.
My arrival this week found me with 104 degree temperature, a cough and body pain so bad, I was certain my diagnosis would be the Zika Virus.
I am recovering from a virus that would be a few days of rest in a healthy person’s life, making the reality of Multiple Myeloma, a Stem Cell Transplant and a compromised Immune System, the hardest pill to swallow these past few days.
I’ve let myself shed a few tears and have a few moments of despair, but know I will survive one more challenge.
Besides, any self respecting Cancer Fashionista would never stay down wearing a pair of skid socks that can expand to a man’s size 13 shoe!
