September First...

Cameron started first grade today! Amazing!! Seems like just yesterday I was going back to work after having him! Now, six years later, he is off and running! He could not go to sleep last night, he was SO excited! Came in to me at 10:15pm and that was it! Go to sleep or your NOT going to school!! That did it!! He was asleep in no time!

Kacey starts back to Pre-school on Sept. 15th. She will be going all five mornings this year. She is so excited to go back, although, she wants to go to school with Cameron. Next year, Kac! Didn't meet the cut-off for Kindergarten! Although she is probably MORE than ready!!

So yesterday was my LAST day of chemo!! My blood counts have all come up on their own, so the doctor was thrilled with that. She said they were high enough for her to give me one last blast of chemo to help with the last week of radiation. She only gave me one of the drugs, but better than nothing, I guess! I will not miss that! My doc also said that she was impressed, overall, at how well I tolerated the treatments and how determined I was to get through them, despite the few bumps in the road. I told her there was no other way! I HAD to fight! I had no other choice! I knew what I had to do and I did it with as much dignity and strength as I could.

So as of right now, I have TWO more radiation treatments. I will continue to feel tired and have some tough days for the next two weeks, but should start to feel better every day. My doctor is going to keep a VERY short leash on me and already has me scheduled to see her next week and get hydration as needed to help me heal faster. Whatever I need to do to get stronger and feel better faster!! Although I must say, I will NOT mind not having to drive into Boston every day!! And I am sure my family won't mind either!!

Enjoy the rest of the week!!
And to my East coast family and friends, prepare for the wrath of EARL!!


  1. Have Dad and I told you how much we love you and how proud we are of you?!? I think a few times...but just wanted to make sure you know!!

    Soooo glad that the end is in sight and will be totally ecstatic when Dec. somes and you get CLEAN SCANS!!! Will be difficult for all of us to wait until then...but will be good to see you starting to feel better!

    Love you so very much, Kris!!!

  2. Kris, you are such a great warrior. With your will to fight, the good doctors who are battling the disease with you, and God's power to heal, there's no doubt that you will win. May God continue to bless you with a clean bill of health forever more.
    In His Name!
