Thank you to everyone

It's 4:20 am and I'm wide awake. I had to take some steroids to deal with possible allergic reactions to the chemo drug I had yesterday and one of the side effects is insomnia (along with an incredibly hot and red face and some bloating in the face already). Thank goodness I only have to take these pills for 3 days. And so far, this chemo has been very easy although I've heard days 2-4 get a bit rougher. A good friend drove me home for the hospital and I was able to chat with her for quite a few hours before I got tired - we even went for a walk together! Thanks J! You're an amazing friend.

Anyways,,, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has posted to my blog and emailed me or phoned me. I don't think you know how much it means to me to have such incredible support. I really draw strength from knowing that prayers are being said and that you're thinking about me and my family.

Hi Annette. I was awake at 4:30 am too ... I got up and did some banking (typical for me, eh) ... I could have caught up with you!!! Take care and best wishes on your new treatment. Have a nap today.

Hi Annette
Just want to say hi, you are never far from our mind and in our prayers. Hope this round of chemo will do it's thing and help you get better. It's great to read your blog so we can keep up with things. You may get strength from the people that write you, but you GIVE strength to those that read your messages, as to how you deal and cope with your "bump on the road" I copied the "weaver" poem
and include in the cards I send. We wish you and Tom and the kids strength for each day, one day at the time. Love P&S Nauta

My little blonde bundle of energy had me up at 5:00 this morning, and I got up thinking about you. I hope you're feeling okay and getting your rest. Tell those sweet boys of yours to give you a great big hug from Emma and me.
