What a fabulous 61st birthday I had! It was Mother's Day and the day before chemo so I had some energy. Noah cooked the entire meal consisting of chicken tenders with scallions and maple syrup glaze, some puffs, roasted potatoes with rosemary and garlic and a big birthday cake with chocolate mint chip ice cream inside! While I still can't eat much it was delicious! My boys gave me a book filled with 61 reasons why they love me! WOW! Some were little stories and some just a line. Noah had been collecting these from the other two for some time and typed them up and got it printed locally. Needless to say there were tears over this! Adam had one of his gorgeous photographs from Hawaii printed on canvas. So now I have an ocean view from the kitchen! Alex stopped by before he had to work for a quick visit and a big hug! I am really the luckiest Mom!
I had chemo yesterday and a shot to boost my white blood count today. Not feeling great but I'm sure in a couple of days it will be better. I just finished my second round! YAY! Four more rounds to go.
Oh Cait! What a wonderful birthday, and oh my gosh, what a great gift that the boys created for you... and that Noah! How absolutely precious to plan ahead and get the book printed in time! And to cook! You are a lucky woman, and I'm so glad to see this post! I'm glad you're here and happy to hear that 1/3 of the chemo rounds are done! I'm thinking of you, praying for you, and sending love and good healing vibes!ReplyDelete
