However, I had an amazing weekend. It started on Thursday, with a Duffy boat (small boat with sun cover, sits 12) lunch ride with some friends/coworkers. It was great to see them, and a very relaxing ride. Reminded me how much I miss some of the people I work with, will need to plan some more lunches so I can get to say hi to others!
As a bak story, my daughter had been asking to go to disney every morning for about a week, and I was feeling guilty about my energy levels and not being able to take her since chemo started. It may sound like she's spoiled by getting to go all the time, but she also has to deal with her mama not being able to interact much with her every other 1.5weeks, so I think she, my husband and i deserve all the fun we can jam-pack into our one good weekend!
We went to Disney on Thursday evening for about 2 hours so that I could test out energy levels. We only did one ride and dinner, but I was ok and our daughter was happy since she got to see some of the characters from afar.
Friday after my good prognosis announcement, we went to our good friend's house and had some mimosas (don't worry Mom, I didn't have a whole bottle like my sister suggested ;) ). On Saturday, even though we were pretty tired, I was ecstatic to be able to join a group of fiends on their second cooking party, it was great to spend time with their kids too!
Are you guys getting tired just by reading this? Saturday after nap time, it was another Disney day - and on Sunday we went to aquarium with another set of friends. Needless to say, I was exhausted by Sunday night, but as my husband says, it was good for the soul! We are already talking about fun things to do on next pre chemo weekend, although I'll have to schedule some more breaks... :)
I am still on a high from hearing good news about my prognosis, but I haven't forgotten how tough this disease can be. A friend of mine, who is battling cancer for the second time, just left the hospital after 12 days and 3 surgeries. Please send positive thoughts for his speedy recovery, I know we will be!
