Over the hump...

I think I might finally be over the hump with the side effects of my last chemo. Today is the first day that I've felt somewhat "normal" in weeks. Although I woke up with a splitting headache...I'm feeling pretty good right now. I feel almost human with a fair amount of energy. The trick is going to be making sure I don't over do it because, if I do, I will regret it tomorrow!
I've still got some major swelling going on and because of this, shoes are optional right now!

Once my headache was in check...I was able to clean the kitchen, make some cranberry bread and boil some eggs for breakfast. Although, my kids don't like the "okes"!! Nathan has a basketball game at 11am and he is adamant about making it to confession today which begins at 3:45pm!

Dan and I have a Christmas party to attend tonight and we have reserved one of our favorite babysitters for the kids!!! It's been a while since we've been able to go out...mainly because I just haven't felt well enough. We're supposed to bring an appetizer of some sort and I'm not sure if I'll actually make something, or, go with already prepared frozen stuff. We'll see how I'm feeling after the basketball game.

All in all...this seems like a typical, normal day for our family "before" cancer. I look forward to a day when I don't think about it at all and where my physical health is not something that I dwell on in a negative way. I do see a light at the end of the tunnel and I have a good feeling about it!

Oh Nancy! How wonderful! I am continuing to pray that this all becomes a memory for you! Enjoy yourself tonight-we're going out too! WOOHOO!

I don't think I could do all of that in one day even though I'm in fairly good health, I think. It makes me tired just thinking about it!
Have a great evening out!
