Halfway There!

Nini here, reporting live from Corralitos (well, it's a live report as I'm typing, not as you are reading...).

Today was Jen's third chemo treatment which means she's halfway done with the chemo! Hooray! Grace brought lunch from Severino's (OMG those fries are good) and we sat outside and visited. Lori stopped by with a cute blanket for Jen's new bedroom decor. Then Gammo/Mom/Jane called to say hi (that's her there on the phone...see?)

More good thoughts:
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Which Twin Has The Toni?

Ha! Thank goodness Jen has more style than to try to emulate these lovely ladies.

Which Woman Has A Wig? Pretty hard to tell.....

Here's a great quote from Buddha:
“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here's Jen talking on the phone to Mom on Maui while getting treatment:

And Grace and I ran an errand in her NEW CAR! Nice car Grace!

Then it was game night and we played Scene It -- Disney Version! (Jen and I knew some of the "vintage" related questions...)

Chemo #2 Down!

Nini here, happy to report that Jen's chemo #2 went very well yesterday. Barbara Thompson came by to visit again, as did Earleen. We all had a great visit and Barbara brought a bunch of leftover candy and pushed it on everyone! All the other chemo patients liked it though. Thanks for coming Barbara and Earleen! Grace came by with yummy lunch from Severino's Grill where she works. Jen and Grace and I ate lunch outside on the picnic table (handy portable IV poles...) and then went back in for another hour or so.

I took a bunch of pictures, but Blogger is having photo uploading issues, so please check back in later to see photos from the treatment and other fun stuff.

I saw this quote today and thougt it was a good one:
"There is one consolation in being sick...the possibility that you may recover to a better state than you were ever in before."
— Henry David Thoreau

Jen is always grateful for your wonderful prayers, positive thoughts, smiles and fun emails.

More soon!
