I've been struggling to keep my posts updated at least every other day. However, I realize that there really is a time when one can't find the right mood or enthusiasm to write. And since it's been a while after my last post, I'm posting my activities/idleness for the last whole week that passed.
MONDAY : We were feeling lazy the whole morning so to while away the time, Hubby and I decided to go malling right after lunch. We were supposed to go to SM Megamall but it was jam packed with Christmas shoppers. We veered to the nearby Shangrila Mall instead and found an available parking space at the top most level of the Car Park. The drive to the place was quite exhausting so we went straight ahead looking for a good place to eat. There were many nice eating places in Shangrila Mall which gave us a hard time deciding where to eat. After a few rounds of the place, we ended at a Greek Restaurant called Cyma, The Greek Taverna. The food was fine but a bit pricey. Take a look at what we had.
TUESDAY: A visit to my doctor-oncologist for laboratory request. I’m still safeguarding my health despite the declaration of complete wellness. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Or so they say.
WEDNESDAY: I attended Healing/Thanksgiving Mass and Christmas Party by the Medical and Molecular Oncology at NKTI (National Kidney and Transplant Institute). I feel so blessed every time my Oncologist, Dr. Gloria Cristal-Luna would introduce me to her other patients and sharing them my own story of cancer survival. I felt tremendously grateful for passing on to these patients the inspiration and hope I always keep in my heart and mind. >> The Mass/ Party was a success with every one going home with too many minor and major giveaways.
THURSDAY: I was back at the NKTI for my Whole Abdomen Ultrasound and various Blood Examination including CEA and CA-15-3 which are both tumor counter exam. This two are the laboratory exams I am so anxious about because it tells if there’s something to be wary of regarding the cancer case. And with God’s blessings, I was always in the normal level on this lab test. The latest results for these, I have to claim on Monday.
FRIDAY: ‘Twas another lazy day. The Christmas decors were scattered on the floor waiting to be hanged and/or set up. What I did was, lie on the sofa and watch T.V. My son and daughter were discouraging me from decorating too much. Just the Christmas tree is enough. “Christmas is just few days away and in a wink of an eye, it would be over and done”. They insisted. Despite the grouch in me, I was able to set up the Christmas tree. I realized I could not afford to let Christmas pass without the classic tree. As for the other decors, it’s in a wait and see situation.
SATURDAY: I tried to dust it off but the sloth sticks on around me. Lazy me! Time and again, I would always say I'm grateful that “angel” is here. I wouldn’t have the luxury of this kind if not for her. I know, she rightfully deserves a good Christmas present and am thinking about it for days now. Would you have any idea what to give this “angel” of mine?
So, those were all for my past week. Keeping my fingers crossed, I'll be on the normal stream of my activities once again!
