Posts Tagged ‘cancer’

Okay, so there is probably no one left checking in on my blog.  It has been months since I have posted… life has been busy… and I have been lazy.  I’m attempting to jump back into the habit of posting a few times a week but it may be a slow start.

So, you ask, what have I been doing since Christmas?  Here are a few things that have been going on…

  • I am now 35 weeks pregnant!  Yikes, just writing that down freaks me out.  We are taking hypno-birthing classes, getting the nursery ready, and trying to enjoy these last few weeks of being child-free.  I’m feeling huge and have trouble getting up from the couch and out of bed.  It seems like my ankles are swelling up more often and I have to go to the bathroom about every five minutes and I’m quite forgetful… but other than that, I’m doing great!
  • My best friend(and preggo bud – we were due 2 weeks apart) was diagnosed with cancer this month.  She is an amazingly strong woman with a faith that I envy.  Within days of finding out her hip pain was due to a malignant tumor on her femur, she delivered baby Ethan by c-section at 34 weeks and then had her hip replaced three days later.  She and baby are now home recovering and getting healthy before she begins 9 months of chemo in April.  I must admit that this had rocked our world in the last month as this family is one of our closest friends.  Here is a picture of us at Mass General just a few days prior to her c-section:

  • After Christmas we made a trip down to North Carolina to see some extended family on my side.  We drove whole way which wasn’t so bad because I watched the entire season 9 of Friends on my laptop.  I love that my grandparents totally do it up for Christmas:

 

I’m looking forward on keeping everyone up to date over the next several months as we go throug many exciting changes in our family!
