Approaching the last chemo, it seems like it takes a little longer after each treatment to get my energy back. But next week is the last chemo, so I have 4-6 weeks to recover before surgery. Happy dance! Happy Dance! Feeling a little down this morning when a Facebook Post from one of my dear friends raised me up and put me back on a good path. It is amazing to have so many people in my life who care. Thanks so much Judith Bert! Once again, Thanks to all of you for the FB messages, texts, blog replies, phone calls, and emails, they all lift me up!

Next week during my chemo, my husband and I will be having our 31st anniversary. Just want to take a time out to say that I could not have made this journey without him! He has taken such good care of me and I am so blessed to be his wife. On our first visit to the Oncologist, George told me I would not be alone on this journey, that he would be with me every step of the way. It brought tears to my eyes and I will never to be able to express how much I love him and thank God every day for bringing him into my life. He has taken me to every treatment, appointment, and test and has been there every second of the way. He has seen me puking my guts out, with chemo burn, and looking like a baby grackle with my almost bald head and still tells me I am beautiful and that he loves me. For those of you who think I am brave, let me tell you, I am not. But with a love like that, how could I not face this War on Cancer with ferocity? Love gives me wings.

This week the new WIP is a fox. We have visited Bearizona several times and this little guy fascinates me. He is so cute and furry that I just have to give him a go. Hope you enjoy! Last chemo next week… happy Dance…happy dance……

  1. First of all, great job with the fox. 🙂 Secondly, where do I start?! What a great man you have, Arlene. Now THAT”S true love. I’m so glad you have a strong man who’s held your hand throughout this harrowing journey. No doubt, this journey has built some (more) great character and strength into him as well. I’m so glad you have each other. :0) And also, I’m so happy to hear that you’re on your last treatment!! Happy dance, indeed! :0)

  2. Thanks! It is great to have friends do the happy dance with me!

  3. With a Happy dance… Happy Dance… your next piece should be penguins! But a fox by the “Foxy Lady” is good, too! God Bless George!!! Behind you all the way!!! Much, much Love, Maggie-

  4. Whooo hooo another friend doing the happy dance with me! Love you Maggie!
