Many thanks and an update on the “happy juice” therapy :)

Hey everyone! Just wanted you all to know how much Neil and I appreciate all of your support, prayers and positive thoughts. We are officially on strike of all negative thoughts and are focused on operation” get this junk out of my body” :). We both are just amazed at all the people who have logged on, and honestly didn’t know we knew this many people! Yet name after name, I can picture a smiling face and it is so reassuring to know that so many people are pulling for us. We have been reading the messages posted and thank everyone for the kind words of encouragement and well wishes.

Me and my older sister Monique the first day of chemo

As many of you know, chemo started yesterday and will continue through Friday. So far so good with the nausea as they have made HUGE advances in controlling nausea with some new medications and I’m feeling really good overall. But they have not yet found a cure for losing your hair so I went wig shopping with several girlfriends and had many laughs trying on various styles and colors. I had intended to just go with a pink mohawk, but instead settled on a “Posh” Spice cut and a short dark brown sassy number for everyday. Funny photos by Mom I will try to post on here for some good laughs. Neil will be able to choose which wife he wants depending on his mood…not too bad right?

Most importantly, we want to give special thanks to all our friends and family below who sent the incredibly beautiful flowers! WOW!! The house looks amazing and is bursting with color! Know that we are sincerely grateful to all of those who have reached out in kindness to us and humbled by your amazing generosity.
