April 22nd: Port Day

Port, not like the delicious syrupy wine that I love to sip on a cold winter’s day, but the device that was put in my chest. The port will provide a direct line for the chemotherapy. I was grateful for kind nurses today.


April 23rd: First Chemotherapy done💉


May 7th: Ding ding round 2, cancer cells I’m coming for you 🥊🥊

I’m SO happy to be able to change chemo locations and continue my treatments in Glencoe where they are letting my husband be with me! It makes ALL the difference to be able to have emotional support through this! 💗


May 9th: BYE BYE HAIR

They tell you it’s going to happen, you prepare yourself that it’s going to happen, but when it actually happens... ugh This is so personal, but I want to see this memory and look at what I have been through. I can go through this transformation and know that I am more than my hair.

Time to break out the head coverings because governor Waltz has decided wig shops are not essential business. Or maybe I’ll just rock this bald head!


May 21st: Chemo Day 💉😷... Round 3

KEEP GOING... LOOKING FORWARD

One more done, 13 to go!


June 4th: Chemo Day💉#4

People have asked me why I think this happened to me, like if I believe there is a reason. Why do bad things happen? I don’t know! Sometimes bad things happen to good people, I can’t begin to say I understand it, but I do believe that while we cannot control what happens, we can control our reactions to it. The chemo drip is going and I know know I won’t feel good soon, but I am choosing to have a positive attitude today and find comfort believing in God’s plan for my life💗.


June 8th: Celebrating18 years of marriage!
