Cancer Bitch - On the Upswing

Got good news today. Dr. Zeng says the tumor has shrunk, and I've gained weight. The bad news - blood pressure is up and I can't eat just everything. (I've demolished entire cartons of Haagen Dazs with the excuse that I've got to get my weight up).

So, I'll allow myself the Eastern Market Lunch crabcake - I'll just skip the french fries and soda.

Also, got to start another round of chemo next week. Sigh.

Cancer Bitch Graduates

I did it y'all! And the invisible posse turned out in force - whether at graduation, at the party, or with cards and flowers.

Mother in law Doris, Brenda and Lil (Brenda's Mom)

Doris and Mo drove in 7 hours from West Virginia, Mom and Sister Dawn flew in. Cousin Charles and Allene surprised me at the ceremony after flying in from Denver.

I came home Friday to find Gail and Doris cleaning the house (and questioning Nelly's boyfriend)

I appreciated every bit of it.

Now for the confession. I overdid it. I will now admit on this page that I am NOT superwoman. I cannot graduate, party all day, then do it all over again on Sunday. (Although "Iron Man 2" was the bomb) I woke up Monday feeling like hell, but understanding completely I did it to myself. (I hate it when Lynn is right)

Went to Johns Hopkins today, and everything went fine. I'll be resting for the next two days and reliving pleasant memories of family and friends over my own personal superbowl weekend!
