Today is the holiday of Purim, one of my favorites. Tonight, Jan and I went to hear the megillah reading at Hineni. Rebbitzin Jungreis gave me a blessing for good health and also suggested I read Psalm 20 seven times a day. The megillah reader was Dr. Michael Zelefsky who is the “engineer” setting up my treatment team at Sloan-Kettering, He is such a charming gentle and competent man and has assured me that I am and will continue to be with the best team to make me well.
While waiting for the biopsy appointment to be scheduled, I am enjoying this lull before the storm; going to school, spending time with my precious husband and children, and just taking life a moment at a time. I am so grateful not to have to deal with the cancer for right now.
Thank you to all who have called and written notes. I am truly a very blessed person having so many people in my corner.
