Not around cause I’m meeting some heroes!

September 22, 2009

First I really need to apologize for my lack in blogging these past few weeks. A lot of craziness is going on in my life, from health, stress, emotions, work, everything just decides to hit all at once.

Some of you may know I’ve been getting some treatment done at the new cancer hospital that has finally opened up at UNC. It is beautiful, and better yet the same employees are still there. These employees remember your name, your interests, and always take the time to sit and visit with you. They have hearts of gold and are filled with compassion.

I brought all the nursing staff some crazy popcorn, cause when you get stressed you can get the munchies :p

I have also met some amazing patients here. These people are fighting for their lives. I watched a woman graduate from chemo, as the staff all came out with their clappers and a certificate for her. They also didn’t forget another patients 50’th bday complete with candles and cupcakes. I hope he sees 51, i truly do. These people are brave, they take each day as it comes and on the good days, try to live it to its fullest.

There is so much I want to express, but for now I have to stop here, time for my own tubes to come out!

CARPE DIEM!
