Week 3 news

Three weeks  of treatment are now complete and I am definitely feeling it!  Had a rough morning today, can tell it's Friday. Happy to have the weekend off!
I saw my radiologist on Tuesday. He said the rash ( re-occurrence)is looking good so far. My treatments were reduced from 13 more to 8 more! They will increase in intensity but.. I will be finished next Friday! Five more to go!
Driving home from treatment some guy ran into the back of my car. Chris had just had new bumpers put on my Pathfinder while we were in Hawaii. Fortunately, between the large bumper and trailer hitch, the damage was not to my car as far as  I can tell. To make it worse, we had to stand on the side of the highway in 116 degrees! :(
As things are getting a bit harder I have asked for help with dinners. We have been so fortunate to have friends and family that have stepped in to help. Our son and daughter-law made an incredible vegetarian dinner for everyone and then  yesterday, I spent a wonderful day  with my daughter-in-law, Stephanie. She made 2 dinners  to freeze while I took a nap :) Thank you so much Steph ♥ My youngest son Matt also helped out and made grilled steak and chicken, homemade mashed red potatoes and spinach salad! I could get used to this :)Not bad for having all sons :) During dinner, we all got to feel baby Liam kicking away. Nikki said he kicked a lot when his Nonnie (me:) felt his little feet!
Lastly, this was a post left on my blog by a lady named Vicki that really meant a lot to me. A great example of how the Lord works in our lives.
"Wow, you don't know how much that just inspired me! 13 years!! I just hit "next blog" on my blog and landed right here and am so happy I did. I am just 5 months into a stage IV bc diagnosis. Thanks for the big dose of optimism and healthy living I aspire to achieve :) "
Vicki~ I think we have a mutual blog friend, Kim.

I know this time is hard and getting harder. I have never had cancer so I haven't walked in your shoes. But you are an inspiration to anyone who is coping with difficult life situations.

Keep plugging along! You will come out on the other side!

Indeed, we do have Kim as a friend in common. And you can't know how much what you have, is what I dream of :) Grown kids, and daughter-in-laws and getting called "Nonnie." That is all just beautiful to me and very inspiring. Keep going girl!

Few words, but much sincere pray for you dear lady!
