Pressing on

This past weekend, I went on an outing to the more indie film theater to see a film June Bug, Dashing's grandma, wanted to see. Typically you'd think a grandparent would want to see some slow, lackluster film. No such thing with June Bug. She had me and Glenda join her for a trip to see Coco Before Channel. It was a wonderfully done subtitled movie with so much ambition. One line stood out specifically for me. A main character in the movie said to Coco that when a woman cuts her hair, her life will change. I can stand by that line!

On Wednesday, I had my third chemotherapy treatment. I'm getting used to the drive to Tucson, the check-in process, and the treatment regimen. However, this time was extra special! Instead of sitting in the pods of recliners, I was pleasantly surprised that this time I got to have a private room! Usually these are reserved for very ill people or patients that must receive treatment lying down. They were slow that morning -so I benefited from it. See these private rooms have a bed and tv. So plush! Take a look - it looks like a hospital room, I know, but it is so comfortable!

After treatment on Wednesdays, Dashing's aunt is sweet enough to have dinner ready for the entourage when we arrive home after our long day of travel and treatment. She does this every week - what a kind heart she has. This week's menu included pasta, homemade meatballs, dinner rolls, caesar salad, and wine. So delicious!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm headed on another outing to the Arizona State Fair tonight. I may be rolling in a wheelchair, but hey - it's worth it for their elephant ears and corn on the cob!

I pray for you every night. It seems like you are pressing forward with courage and faith! You are a wonderful example to not only medical significant others, but women in general. Be well.

I don't know you, but you are such an inspiration to me. My Dad, who is a doctor, was diagnosed in February with cancer. It seems like my family has been on a roller coaster since then, but we all remain positive. Thank you for showing me that we are not alone.

It's amazing to me that you're still living your life even while having to go through all of this-what a great spirit!

The Coco movie is coming to my town next week. I'm debating on if I will enjoy it, since it is in subtitles. The September Issue is showing here right now and I want to see it before it ends. Have fun a the fair!!
