What a wonderful week it has been!!! I received my last Taxol chemo treatment!!! 12 weeks of hell is over!!! It’s been six months since all of this started and sometimes it feels like yesterday, other times it seems much longer. All I know is I’m happy to have surgery and my first round of chemo behind me!! Radiation and the rest of my chemo starts the first week in July. But that chemo is no big deal compared to the Taxol.
My friend, Michelle, decorated my driveway and had a group of family and friends there to celebrate when I got home from my last treatment. They covered me in silly string! It was fun and so sweet.

Matt and I went out for a celebratory breakfast after my last treatment. I’m so glad he was with me for the last one and we were able to celebrate. He’s my rock.
My BFF got me the most beautiful charm bracelet to celebrate as well. It has good luck charms on it: a pearl, a four-leaf clover and an elephant with its trunk up. It’s gorgeous!
We had wonderful dinners again last week and this week from my friends Nicki and Pam. So delicious! I am looking forward to cooking again but will miss being spoiled by my wonderful friends!
My husband started his golf league again which means golf nights each week with my BFF! I love that our kids get along so well and we all look forward to it each week.
I have peach fuzz on my head!!!! I’m so excited. It’s not much, but it’s a glimmer of hope that my hair will be back soon.
Matt and I went out for a rare afternoon date (so nice to have a 13-year-old in the house!) and bought furniture. We are redoing are downstairs finally! We’ve lived in our house for almost 6 years and it was time for an update. I’m so excited to paint and redecorate. Our home is really our haven and I want it to feel that way all through the house.
Gabe has a girlfriend. A true girlfriend. It’s the cutest and it’s also weird. I don’t feel old enough to have a son who has a girlfriend. I was very proud of him…he asked her to be his girlfriend in person! Not a text! They’ve been hanging out in a group and texting constantly. It’s very sweet. He’s very happy. She’s adorable and sweet.
Matt and I rented This is 40 from the library and laughed our asses off. We’ve seen it before but it’s been a while and I’d forgotten how funny it is. I need to have this one for my collection!
Orange is the New Black season 3 is on!!! I just re-watched season 2 and couldn’t wait for the new one. Love this show. I love the back stories on all of the inmates.
Matthew and Gabe both made their respective travel soccer teams. We are so proud of them! It’s Matthew’s first time playing travel and I’m anxious to see how it goes. Both of my boys really love soccer. We do too!
What made you happy this week?
I am so neglectful… I didn’t realize any of this was going on. So glad this round is over and you’re doing well. Sending prayers and good thoughts that you continue to be happy and healthy.
