|The bachelorette... isn't she so cute?|
|"Red Devil" that I loathe|
Do you know how sad I am to have to miss my best friend’s big weekend?! While she was enjoying her white chocolate martini (that I picked out!), I was experiencing my own “cocktail” topped off with Adriamycin. Blehh! (I took this picture to show you that I’m really not kidding about the bright red color and potency of this medicine). The good news is that K had a great time at her bachelorette, and I will be finished with chemo in time to plan all of the fun details of her bridal shower! It will be absolutely amazing to plan the perfect party for her!

Speaking of amazing, have I ever told you how much I love my husband? (I know I have!) This guy has had a lot on his plate, particularly these past few weeks. I admire his strength and devotion to me throughout everything. He says that his love for me has only grown, and I believe him. (Whoever thought that I could be so lovable bald?) This trial is strengthening our marriage in a way that gives us so much confidence and trust in each other. If we can make it through this, we can make it through anything! I’m sure that it’s not easy having a wife who is sick for four months. Every day, my hubby faithfully hooks me up to my IV antibiotics (twice), injects heparin into my picc line, does more than his share around the house, holds down a full time job, and still manages to be super sweet! He bakes me chocolate brownies, brings home flowers regularly, cooks for me most nights, spends time with me when I’m in the hospital, and patiently sits through endless doctors appointments and meetings with surgeons. I am truly blessed to have this man in my life! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for the rest of our lives together. It can only go uphill from here! =)
