40 is Fabulous!


I had a wonderful birthday celebration at Agua Verde on Lake Union. It was so special to have so many friends and family come out to celebrate with me. A big thank-you to my Mom and Dad for hosting such an amazing event!

My Aunt Mary came to visit all the way from Florida, so we had a whole week of special events. My actual birthday included dinner at The Barking Frog. My Aunt Mary made me some super cute pillows with photos of the dogs. So sweet!

It was a whirlwind week and it was worth the sore feet and exhaustion that followed. Unfortunately, I had to return to chemo on Wednesday and have scans the same day, which was tiring. I felt okay for a few days but yesterday the side effects hit me like concrete. The pain feels like someone is grabbing my bones like wet washcloths and wringing out the bone marrow. It’s much better today, but after bloody noses several times last night and nausea and pain, I’m still home in my pjs for at least one more day.

Many thanks to everyone who donated to The Pink Daisy Project!
