After leaving the house at 3:50 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7, guess who's finally home sweet home! Yesterday Ramón had a repeat bone marrow biopsy, and we'll learn those results on Monday. If all goes as expected, he'll begin outpatient chemo next week.
Although coming home is a huge milestone, there's still quite a long road ahead of us. We'll share more as we learn it, but Ramón is handling this all with incredible strength and humor. Coming out of sedation yesterday (pictured), Ramón kept repeating, "I feel perfectly fine." I'd acknowledge him, then he'd say again, "I feel perfectly fine." I'd tell him I was glad and he'd assure me, "I feel perfectly fine." Finally I told him he must be feeling more than fine because he kept repeating himself. He then proceeded to get up and do field sobriety tests. Oh, Ramón.
Thank you all for your ongoing support. Whatever you're doing, it's working! We're exhausted, but we feel surrounded by love.
