If you're wondering if I'm still thinking about The Fault in Our Stars, the answer is...
YES!

So good.

Other updates:
-I'm still caffeine and diet-soda free - for 2+ weeks. The caffeine withdraw headaches are gone. What remains is a much sleepier Emily.
-Pappy's Place in Rochester is pretty delicious.
-I've really been focusing on increasing my iron intake to alleviate the anemia situation. It has been a fun project. What are your favorite sources of iron?
-I'm trying to teach myself Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign for work. It is a challenge - a great one....but a hard one! I am planning to take an InDesign class in July for 3 days. Any other tips?
-Had a great visit with Dr. Hook, my hematologist, last Wednesday. I'll have a weekly blood test. No more Promacta as soon as I'm done tapering off (alleluia....it helped for awhile, but I never felt great about that medicine). I'll have monthly IVIG infusions - but the dose will be considerably smaller. In the hospital this last time, I had 120 grams. For my monthly infusions, I'll have 24 grams. Hopefully it will work - and it should be manageable. And if I do have a spontaneous remission, then I won't have to do any infusions. Jackpot!
-It's almost my 31st birthday. I had planned to go to Cali for the week, but due to the ol' platelets, the flight and trip got cancelled. Any recommendations of adventures within 4 hours of Rochester?
