Haven't slept a wink...

Despite a 12:30 am dose of Benadryl and a 1:30 am dose of Toradol. I'm not in substantial pain, just itchy, sweaty, and wide awake.

I even had the nurse draw my bloodwork at 1:30 am so she wouldn't have to wake me at 4 am like she usually does. Yet, here I lie, wide awake at 4 am.

I've been overwhelmed by everyone's generosity over the past week. The countless expressions of love and thoughtfulness, small and large, have meant so much to me. I know I couldn't do any of this without the support of my family and so many of you have expanded and redefined what it truly means to be a family. I feel rich in the truest sense to be blessed with so many lovely souls in my life. Thanks for being my backbone when I needed it most.

I wish I could be more of a backbone. I love you so much and am so scared that this has happened to you. You are in my prayers every day and every night.
