Wide awake at 5:30 a.m. as usual. Luckily there were people to chat with and news to catch up on FB.
By 7 a.m. I really want everyone else up too. When Linda came over to give me my morning shot, Peter was still sleeping. Lucky him.
The beautiful morning was spent with me making a double batch of American chocolate chip cookies. I did it with love and purpose. Tomorrow I am bringing a plate of cookies to my contact nurse in the Hematology department who has been so helpful and good and explaining everything to me. On Tuesday I am bringing a plate to my chemo nurse who was also fantastic in explaining everything and very good at administering all the drugs into my body. I don't think they get enough recognition for the job that they do. THANKS
The rest of the cookies were served tonight at our dinner party. More on that later.
After my cookies were made it was my mom's turn to do some cooking in the kitchen for the dinner guests for tonight. The menu consisted of fettuccine alfredo, Swedish meatballs (American style) and the best asparagus ever.
In the afternoon I took the dog out for a long walk and then came back and tried to lay down a while. Just when I was about to doze off my sister facetimes me and it was just to get up and let her talk to everyone. We laughed a bit as she got to see all the dinner preparations as they were progressing.
After waiting all day, it was time for our dinner guests. Mia and Stina and their families came over. We were 15 people all together. The kids are old enough now that it was quite fun for the adults to be able to sit and enjoy the dinner in the dining room while the kids had their own fun at the kitchen. It was great food and my parents outdid themselves as usual. We laughed, laughed, ate, looked at old pictures, laughed some more and had a great time and ate the rest of the cookies. LOVED

Grateful for all my friends. I am so thankful for the support and caring words that people shower down on me. Sometimes it is overwhelming how much love is out there. GRATEFUL
Tomorrow it starts again - blood tests at the lab and doctor's appointment to check how the tumor is doing before the chemo treatment number two is done on Tuesday. I CAN'T WAIT.
LOVED. GRATEFUL. LAUGH. KICK CANCER'S ASS. FRIENDS.
