Day 6

My life now revolves around cranberry juice, naps, saline solution, water, the bathroom, and bok choy. They serve it with every meal: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This is lunch: rice, veggies, soup, dessert soup, and fruit.

I’ve learned that taking showers is a luxury. Being able to do it with two hands will be even more magical. Changing my sheets kind of makes me feel like I’m staying in a hotel. The day nurse greets me with “Buenos dias every morning at seven when she comes to take my temperature and blood pressure. I’ve named my IV stand Beanpole because he follows me everywhere, even to the bathroom.

Thank you, Miley Cyrus. You’ve expressed my feelings exactly. (I secretly am a 16-year-old girl inside.)

The struggles I’m facing,
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down
No I’m not breaking I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah

Just got to keep going

And I,
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on, cause

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move

Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I’m gonna to have to lose,

Ain’t about how fast I get there,

Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side

It’s the climb (yeah)
