This year, I found out a few days before Thanksgiving that I was neutropenic again. I had a plan to go to Detroit and attend the Lion's game on Thanksgiving, which is very dangerous for someone who is neutropenic. I wouldn't know until after Thanksgiving what my counts were at. I finally decided that you can't just put your life on hold, and I went anyway. Thankfully, I didn't get sick and I had so much fun watching a great game!
This year, I have so much to be thankful for.
I'm thankful for U of M hospital, doctors, and nurses.
I'm thankful for the men and women over seas fighting for our freedom.
I'm thankful for my supportive friends and family.
I'm thankful for my mother for being my caregiver and never leaving my side when I have to go to the hospital.
I'm thankful for my friend Sasha for being supportive and starting the GoFundMe page.
I'm thankful for my boyfriend for being a rock through this process and making me feel beautiful even though I don't have any hair.
I'm thankful for Michigan State University for being an amazing school and giving me the best education.
We should all reflect on what we are thankful for not just this time of year but all the time.
Even though 2016 sucked, these kinds of years show you how much you have to be thankful for. : )
