1. The week main as much as Easter, we headed again to New York for scans and a bone marrow biopsy and acquired excellent news on the outcomes. The scan confirmed continued enchancment (one other 30% discount from the earlier scan), and the bone marrow biopsy confirmed solely benign, non-cancerous cells (Dominic’s oncologist was notably glad about this end result). As well as, he stated that these cells can, in actual fact, gentle up on the MIBG scan that Dominic has, so it’s attainable that at the very least a few of the spots which are nonetheless lighting up are, in actual fact, benign non-cancerous cells.

Whereas we have been in New York, his oncologist drew some additional blood for a particular genetic sequencing blood take a look at that was despatched out to detect any attainable mutations within the neuroblastoma cells within the blood, in order that they will use specialised medicine/therapies to focus on these mutations. We received a name this week that these outcomes have been again and that no mutations have been discovered and, in actual fact, that there have been no neuroblastoma cells in any respect present in his blood. One other little bit of excellent information!

Additionally, we spied a well-recognized face on the wall outdoors the cafeteria after we have been in New York 😎

3. Then, we had an exquisite Easter! We had an amazing day with prolonged household on Saturday, then a low-key day at residence on Sunday earlier than Dominic headed again into the hospital in Pittsburgh the Monday after Easter for his most up-to-date spherical of remedy.

The spherical he had final week was sort of tough… normally nausea and vomiting are his massive points, however that was drastically lowered this time because of a brand new medication they tried on the finish of the final cycle. Nonetheless, he spiked fevers practically nonstop from Wednesday morning via Saturday night (the antibody may cause fevers, and normally he will get one or two in direction of the tip of the week, however nothing like this), and it was inflicting his coronary heart price to spike, so he wanted loads of additional fluids to convey it again down. I used to be extremely relieved when the infusion was executed, after which we headed residence.

4. Have you ever heard of or tried Killer Brownies? I found them within the snack store space of the hospital final time we have been there and they’re the most effective packaged brownie I’ve ever had. So good! (I additionally tried the Brookie, however sadly didn’t like that one as a lot.)

5. I cherished this quote from a latest James Clear publication: “Create your life reasonably than stay it.” Typically it may really feel like the times and weeks and months simply roll collectively; reminder to stay deliberately!

6. Do you might have a favourite amongst these, or a distinct one? >> The 20 Ina Garten Recipes We Can’t Live Without. Her satan’s meals cake is definitely the one one on that checklist I’ve made (and I like, love, find it irresistible!).

7. Let’s chat books! The final time I discussed books, I had simply began Daisy Jones and the Six. I actually loved the story, however positively discovered the writing format troublesome to get used to at first. I lastly did, and it was well worth the learn! I give it 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars.

Then I moved on to The Last Thing He Told Me and oh my gosh, what a fast, fast learn! I completed it in lower than 24 hours. Granted, I used to be on the hospital, so I didn’t essentially have a lot else to do, however STILL. I haven’t learn a e book that quick in years. It had an amazing, suspenseful tempo and I actually loved the e book, however the ending felt slightly bit rushed and incomplete to me. 4.5 stars from me!

8. Talking of books, did you see that there is a sequel to John Grisham’s The Firm set to come back out this fall?! I used to be in center college when The Agency got here out and I devoured it… on the time, I wished to be a lawyer and I used to be obsessive about John Grisham novels. Then, I cherished the film! The identify of the brand new e book is The Alternate and you’ll already preorder it on Amazon.

9. TV issues… we haven’t watched something new currently. I began watching Daisy Jones and the Six on Amazon Prime whereas I used to be on the hospital, and it was okay, however I don’t find it irresistible but (I’m just a few episodes in).

I’m considering of making the most of the free two months of Apple TV that Jennifer Garner posted about on Instagram so I can see the streaming model of The Final Factor He Informed Me.

Have you ever watched both one? Ideas??
