The best weekend yet.
This weekend was awesome. Saturday, I got to visit with my baby group - just the moms. They cleaned my house (better than I do), they brought me chocolate, flowers, food, and clothes. The clothes are the most classic part. They are lounge around clothes, but with v-necks so I can wear them to chemo. So, now I will be a fashion plate at chemo. It helps if you look good while you are attached to your portable IV cocktail! Then, my aunt came over with Thai food, and my neighbor gave me my "before-you-go-to-chemo foot massage" with essential oils. Yesterday, I went to the zoo with my family and had an amazing time. Mason saw the animal program for the first time - he was so excited - clapping and participating like a real little person! Nolan fought sleep, but fell asleep in my arms somewhere in the Savannah section. Everyone napped when we got home (including me) and dinner was a combination of leftovers that I put together cause the cold sensitivity wore off. I actually had a coke WITH ICE!!!!! It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good. I also stopped by a fellow scrapbookers house and picked up some cancer hats when my hair falls out. She gave me a book to read. In the intro it says, "With friends like this I cannot fail." I didn't get past the intro. So, off I go with Mom to Chemo in my cute clothes, courage bracelet (gift), hair still on my head, and my bag full of great books. I am meeting another cancer survivor friend at chemo and she will bring me home. She makes me laugh, laugh, laugh!!!! So, in spite of it being a Chemo Day, it is ramping up to be a good day. Remember with friends like this I cannot fail, Ang
