Another round of chemo in the books…4 more bad ones to go!! Woohoo!!
I had my first appointment with my radiologist oncologist this week and it went well. They have a new treatment option where I’d get 21 higher doses of radiation instead of 33 lower doses. I think I’m going to do that. I’m excited to have 12 days of my summer without radiation!!
My friend Beth took me to chemo this week and we had fun. That’s one upside to chemo—getting to spend one-on-one time with people that you rarely get the chance to catch up with!
Olivia got a new haircut and it’s so cute. (On Instagram! @elastamom417) Her hair has been driving me crazy for a while now because she won’t leave anything in it. If I braid it or put clips in it or anything, she takes them out. When she gets home she looks like a crazy person and she doesn’t need any more reasons to stand out! So we got a cute pixie cut that doesn’t need any bobby pins or anything and she loves it! It’s kind of a pain for me to do each morning, but oh well! Totally worth it!
I took this week of work to rest and recuperate as I have been feeling extremely worn out. I missed my students and coworkers but it was restorative!
I had a wonderful Mother’s Day! We spent the morning with my mom and sister and then had dinner with Matt’s family. The kids made me cards, Gabe wrote me a poem and Matt gave me a beautiful card. It was nice to have a relaxing day with everyone I love.
Matt and I will be celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary tomorrow! We went out to dinner on Wednesday to celebrate since I don’t usually del well on Saturdays. We had a nice dinner and enjoyed some much needed one-on-one time. I don’t think we’ve been out in months!
We had two wonderful dinners from friends this week. So thankful for these dinners!!
My friend, Mary, brought me the cutest survivor sign. Love it!
What made you happy this week?
