Thank you for visiting my blog. I wanted to create it so that all the people close to me can check in to see what happening in my treatment, and how I'm doing. This doesn't mean that I don't want to hear from you. Please feel free to call, email, text any time. But I apologize if I don't always get back to you. This new cancer journey of mine is a full time job, and I'm doing the best that I can. Please know that your thoughts and prayers mean so much to me...keep them coming!

Well, my second round of chemo was yesterday. Apart from being long, everything went well. This time they have sent a home nurse for three days to give me extra fluids...hoping I will be less dehydrated, and feel better. I'm just a little tired, but for the most part feel good, although I hate this IV in my hand. I'll be going to get a port inserted into my chest, to facilitate access to my veins, so I won't have to get poked anymore. I seems kind of gross, but most people highly recommend them. That's on the 22nd.
Thank you again to everyone for a fridge full of food, and especially Alison for coordinating it all. Also to everyone for driving the kids, taking them for playdates, and taking me to appointments. It is all such a huge help.
Thanks for all comments, and votes on the hair too! I'll update you on the wig look soon.
All my love,


  1. Hi Lynne!!

    LoriKline (Russell's mom) Heard your news and my heart goes out to you. It must have been devastating to hear. My father was diagnosed with Leukemia in November and I too am in the thick of it. I am not sure I can compare your situation to his but...cancer is cancer. You are an inspiration the way you are dealing with it. Keep up the fight. Russell is always looking for play dates so if we can entertain Zachary we would be happy to do so.


    ps. beautiful picture of your kids!

  2. Lynne....I so recommend the port and glad to hear you are doing it. You are beautiful with or without your wig but saying that it looks amazing. I had a double take thinking it was your own hair. Thinking of you and hoping we can get together before I leave. much love
