There is just something special and magical about the ballpark. The smell, the sights, the sounds are irreplaceable. While there are many reasons it’s a lot easier to watch games at home, the atmosphere of the ballpark make the expenses worth it. One of the best parts about going to the ballpark is the food….
Last week I was having some PTSD. I had a fever and was brought back to last April when I ended up in the hospital with a neutropenic fever. Fevers are dangerous when you have cancer so I knew I had to head to the ER last year when my temperature was holding at 101….
It’s hard to recall some of the difficult times during my cancer battle. I’ve tried to move on as much as I can and not look back. But certain moments still stick out. Certain times were much harder than others to get past. One thing that is still hard to think about is the diagnosis….
