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! Thank you for all your help and support takes a community, and you have all given us that.
With love and gratitude,

It's official...I'm finished this course of treatment, and moving on to something new. This time, an oral chemo. I'm so excited to grow hair again!!
I have to do a bunch of scans to finish off the trial, and as a baseline for the new treatment. And I'll get my bone drug infusion on Friday, and every six weeks thereafter. But then I should be fairly free to enjoy the rest of the summer.
The kids have had a great month at camp. And we had a great getaway to Blue Mountain. We're planning to visit a few cottages and relax for the month of August. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

I've been feeling really good lately...more positive, and thinking towards the future. I think the fact that I had an extra week between treatments has done me a lot of good. That said, I had chemo yesterday, which usually kicks me down a notch! I was a little disappointed to have such a beautiful weekend, and not be going up north somewhere. But I'm looking forward to a visit with my aunt this week. I'm missing my Dad a lot these days, but I always feel like I get a little piece of him when I see her.
The kids have had a great relaxing break the last two weeks, and are looking forward to camp starting am I - I have so many projects I want to get done.
The summer is already seeming quiet...keep in touch!!
