A Good Couple of Days!

I've been feeling pretty good the past few days--physically and emotionally.  I've been spending a lot of time on the breast cancer discussion boards.  I'm part of the "May surgery group" and "June chemo group".  I'm one of the few not having immed. reconstruction.  Its interesting to read what others' are going through, so I'll have some idea if I decide to do recon.  If I have radiation, that will affect what type of recon. I can have.  I've been adding my 2 cents about chemo, telling others' what I learned last time around.  I'm also learning what to expect from this chemo.  I thought it might be easier than last year, but that's not necessarily the case!  I guess I'll just have to wait and see how it affects me.  There are a lot of people praying for easy side effects!
Today I had lunch with 2 friends from church.  It was so nice to get out of the house, and I realized, the first time I've been behind the wheel in several days!  We had a nice time chatting, and they prayed for me.  Love those 2 ladies!
When I got home from lunch it was so nice out that I brought some stuff to read out on the deck.  I put on shorts and just had my very white legs in the sun for awhile.  I love this weather--70's and low dewpoint!
Then Brennan came over in the afternoon--we always get him on Thurs. because Rachel works before Ken comes home.   Brennan has grown so much recently!  He rolls from back to front and then back again--and he'll do it over and over if he knows we are watching!  He can hold the bottle by himself, if he wants to, and sit up and play with his toys for a long time.  We put a pillow behind him because every now and then he lays back unexpectedly!  He's really caching up!
I have a busy weekend coming up, then my appts. next week.  I'm trying to enjoy every minute of feeling well, knowing it'll end soon!  And yet I want to get chemo started--the sooner it starts, the sooner it can END!
Love ya all!
