middle of it!

I'm in the middle of my last big round of chemo! Bartt and i went away Sunday and came back today - it was nice to not have to get up so early and travel back and forth. We found an inexpensive hotel that was nice and had breakfast included - right down the road. I'm home now and traveling down for day 3 with Mary Ann - an aerobic's class friend tomorrow. At the moment i'm scheduled for surgery on March 2 to take out my ports in my abdomen and hopefully fix the scar tissue that sits on my small intestine, so i can back to a normal diet. That will be nice! That's all for now. take care everybody and thanks ALWAYS for checking in :D

  9. Hello, Laura! It's so wonderful to see how much progress you are making with the chemo. I'm sure there has been a point in your treatment when you felt like it would never end, and now look where you are! You're such a strong, wonderful chick and I admire you so much. I was telling a coworker about you the other day. She had been looking at my etsy shop and wanted to purchase my EPE pendant, so I told her about how I followed your blog and how inspired I was by it. Then she bought the pendant, and I'm so excited because I get to make my first donation! Keep up your positive attitude and your lovely smile, because it's contagious to all of us who keep up with you!
