Day 19

Day 19

Today was the last day of my first round of chemotherapy!  It is a 28 day cycle.  I will take this chemo, which is 9 pills every day, for 2 years.  We were at the hospital all day today so that every couple hours they could draw my blood and make sure everything is going well.

A couple weeks ago, when we were talking about going to “the hospital” we decided that going to St. Jude’s didn’t feel like a hospital to us.  It just sounded too serious for our daily trips there.  So we have decided to call St. Jude’s ~ Judy’s it sounds less formal and more like visiting a friends house instead of a hospital.  When you see or hear us refer to Judy’s you’ll know what we mean!  So after our long day at Judy’s were excited to have a nice relaxing evening.

  5. What a perfect way for me to end the day……seeing that beautiful smile on your face. Sara and Casey, Sophia, Julia and Jack just arrived and Sophia told me that every week she changes her picture of you on her cell phone so this photo is a keeper with that big beautiful smile of yours.

  9. John, John, John, Your smile meals my heart!! You look fantastic in the photo. I took a picture this weekend to send to you. I just have to figure out how to do that. Maybe when you come back to NH, you can teach me. I know you are great at computers and phones and all that good stuff. Keep up all ‘that good stuff.’
