Relief

Hi everyone! Thanks for all your comments and thoughts and overall sweetness. Pretty much...you're the nicest blog readers in all the Internet. How lucky am I?

The blog has been a bit quiet this week, cause Mom and Dad arrived this past Monday! Yay! So we've been getting out and about this week. The kids are loving it, and so am I. They're like family to me, you know?

This past Friday was our day to meet with the radiation oncologist and the medical oncologist. It was a information-overload type of day, but a really good one nonetheless. I mean, "good" in the sense that we really liked both doctors, they each spent a lot of time with us, and answered a lot of questions. Not "good" in the sense that someone waved a magic wand and I don't have cancer anymore. As I've said before, good and bad take on new meanings!

I'll talk more about all that soon. Just wanted to check in! We had those appointments yesterday, came home and debriefed with my parents and sister via webcam, then I packed for a girls' night away. My book club had planned this months ago, and I didn't want to miss out just cause of stupid, dumbhead cancer.

So I was up till 3am last night chatting, except we never seemed to really talk about the book. It was fun, but an absolute marathon of a day. I think I need some sleep now.

I hope you're well. Have a beautiful weekend!

  3. Total information overload. But I wanted to quibble with one point: it is my feeling that you do not now have cancer. You HAD cancer and now everything being discussed is to make sure it doesn't come back. Kind of how I think of myself as cured and not "in remission" or something. There's your magic wand.

    Love you! Glad mom and dad are there but I really do miss their services. xoxoLOL

  4. My book clubs never seem to spend much time talking about the books, either. I think it's an epidemic...

    Good news is good news. Liking the doctors is #1 and HUGELY good. Enjoy your time with your family!

  5. I have suggested in almost-complete-seriousness to my book club that we select an issue of US weekly as our book...

    And, I'm with Becky too!

  7. Loved the advice from your Sis!

    Our book club would discuss for 5 minutes, choose a new book to read and then talk about everything else. LOL...a fun girls night out.
