I'm in Colorado!
I got in this morning and after a quick check in at the hotel, along with a shoe change, I headed out to explore. My exploration started with finding the CCRM office. I found it!
|CCRM - Lone Tree office|
My appointment is tomorrow from 7:30am until around 4pm. LONG appointment. I will write about it once I get home this weekend.
After I found the office, I was starving... it was now about 2pm ET, I had breakfast at 6:30am. I drove around the area trying to figure out where I wanted to have lunch and found a nice shopping center with a Sweet Tomato's (yum). There was a nail salon next door (one that I read about on a CCRM patient message board) and I was hoping to get a pedi today - so I did! And then right next to that was a movie theatre. I caught the 1:25 showing of One Day.
I came back to my room after a quick stop at the grocery (there is a mini kitchen w/ a full fridge in the room). I was going to do a yoga DVD but I couldn't figure out how to get the player to work with the TV. Maintenance was supposed to come up but after 30 minutes, I decided I just wanted to get a shower and rest. So that's what I'm doing.
I've been reading and trying to comment a bit, but the break has been good for me. I don't think the break is fully over, but I'll update everyone on how my visit goes and what comes next.
I'd like to do personal call-outs to many of you, but I'd be up another hour putting it together... so I'll just do one. Shannon, I've been following your updates on Finn closely and you have been constantly in my thoughts and prayers. I'm glad you got to head home today and that the Bone Marrow results were negative! You are so strong! And Finn is such a trooper!
