Countdown to Chemo: 1 day!
But first I need to get going for my day. Today is Oncologist day. Mark and I will go to my Oncology appointment this morning, and Alura will meet us there. She has attended each appointment with the surgeon or oncologist, and has been a breath of fresh air and very level headed. We will go over all the drugs I will be taking on my own at home, review any previous tests, and get clear on any questions we have to date. I think it will be pretty uneventful, as I feel I have most of the information I need for this next step. I mean, I'm ready for the appointment, scary as all the information makes it. I won't really know how I will react and what side effects will present, until I have chemo. So bring it on! Let's get it started!!
HUGE AND GREAT NEWS:
But the part that makes my heart sing, and keeps a huge smile on my face, is the latest news Mark and I received the other night. WE ARE GOING TO BE GRANDPARENTS! There, I said it. Alura and Stephan have decided it is time and they will welcome a bundle of joy in August 2011. We are both in shock and so thrilled. What a nice distraction to everything else in our lives. And to know she kept this quiet all through the holidays and even during my news of breast cancer. She said I needed to concentrate on my plan of treatment first before they could tell me. I don't know much else, but that is enough for me at this moment in time. I get to knit baby things! It is okay now. :-) Life is Good!
