So last night the auction ended that Team Ashley put together….to help pay what seems to be never-ending medical expenses. My family and I are still overwhelmed and without words tonight at the outpouring of support. It. Is. Incredible. Thank you from the very deepest bottom of our hearts. Words just don’t seem enough…..but thank you to everyone who donated and everyone who participated. I want to say a special thanks to Team Ashley who put it together…..they put in so much work it makes me anxious to think about it. I can’t believe how much goes into such an auction….they are still sorting through orders, trying to straighten things out, answering email and email…..even talking to accountants about tax ramifications. Just their time alone spent on the auction has brought me to tears. We are truly humbled by your generosity and support. We continue to CHOOSE JOY every day and hope you will too. Pray for a BIG FAT ZERO in my tumor markers this week so there will be an end in sight to chemo. I should know something tomorrow. I’ve got some CT scans scheduled for Monday too so we can see what’s going on inside. Also, please pray or anyone else going through something similar in their lives. Please check into the Lil Blue Boo Facebook page on Monday because I’m paying it forward to another family….with 100% of proceeds from any pattern sales Monday going to help them out. I’ll need your help!
Note: Team Ashley wanted me to mention that the FEAR WILL NOT RULE TEES will begin shipping next week!
So what did I do today? Well…..I’m back home from a full day of chemo. 8:45am to 5:30pm. I weighed myself this morning 139……I weighed myself when I got home: 143 I gained almost 4 pounds today just in fluid! No wonder I feel a little achy and bloated…..I’m swimming…..and that doesn’t include the gazillion times I went to the bathroom! Mr. LBB says I’m DEFINITELY yellow….from the neon yellow Methotrexate.
First of all…..I was feeling so good this morning first thing that I put on a wee bit of eye makeup this morning. It’s a little bit of a botched job….I think it might be time to install lighting over my sink. Notice I still have my eyebrows! They’ve just thinned a bit and now they just look all scraggly. I’m not plucking ONE hair….even if I just eventually have 4 eyebrow hairs left. I haven’t had to shave my legs, bikini area, underarms in weeks though! That’s awesome.
Ugh…I was stuck a gazillion times though. My veins did not want to give any blood today. They ended up going through a small vein in my hand…..it grossed me out a little…..I usually watch while the needles go in….but I couldn’t watch that.
Notice I am the last one there today. All the other patients were long gone. That’s Nurse L doing a victory leap that the day is over haha.
Mr. LBB and Boo came to pick me up and they wouldn’t let me leave yet. So Boo played games on the computer and talked REALLY loud to disrupt a nurse’s meeting:
We picked up some bread sticks on the way home for dinner. That’s what my body said it wanted:
I’ve crawled in bed and I’m going to watch a movie to fall asleep.
