# Eleven

The 11th chemotherapy infusion has come and gone.  I can't believe it but I welcome it.  This past year has come and gone so fast, but yet has been the slowest and most miserable year to date.  Crazy!  I cannot believe that I only have ONE MORE left.  It makes me so happy!!!!  But so emotional, thinking about how long this journey has been for me and my family.  As I was sitting ready for the hook up I felt so thankful and appreciative to friends, family and caregivers that truly have made this whole experience livable.  I really am going to especially miss my Chemo Nurses.  They are angels who feel like family!  
The infusion went well...I slept like a rock and upon waking I forgot where I was....multiple times.  The nausea and "calm yourself...we are only giving you poison" drugs have really made me feel intoxicated.   Jeff was afraid I would  fall on the way out to the car...it was that good.  
We came home a few minutes before the children arrived home from school and enjoyed their company (debatable) and then my angel Aunt and Uncle who live in town brought me my very favorite meal!
 Chicken Pot Pie. 
 It was delish and we love and appreciate ALL that they have done to support and love us. 
 We Love Them and are so lucky that they live close.


The rest of the evening I spent gorked on the couch with no recollection of anything that transpired.  I just remembered when the house became quiet.  (Not a bad way to spend the evening if I do say so myself.) :)
And here is to the rest of the week.  My mom is coming this afternoon and in the time being, I am catching up on laundry and ironing.  So. Much. Fun.  

The highlight of our weekend was creating this masterpiece Sunday afternoon.  There may or may not have been (but probably was) mutiny on-board during the creation....but we made it through.  Walker did a great job putting it all together.  However there may be a few parts where you might think that it is an old Japanese Film where the words don't line up with the sound from the mouths.   It is a treasure!

Love to you All!

  2. JaNae you are so amazing! I cannot even imagine what you and your little family have gone through. Thank goodness for prayers answered and for only ONE more!
    That video is HILARIOUS! I think Walker has some serious skills. Whitney for sure has a future as a movie star, no doubt about it. Wyatt and Wes, are seriously to die for. My girl's favorite part, is my super star sister! They laugh so hard every time. We watched it 3 times, and they keep asking for more, but I have that hideous song stuck in my head, and I don't think it will ever get out - ahhh!! You guys are such a fun family, and I love you all!

  4. Oh Janae I am so glad that you are almost done with your treatments. The chemo and radiation must have been successful if you are on your last doses! I'm so glad you kicked cancer's butt! Your family is so cute! I loved the video and although I don't know your kids well I can see how much fun you all have as a family. Keep hanging in there Janae. I'm still thinking about you and praying for you.

  7. Had a very stressful nightmare two nights ago. I have been fighting some bug this week (like unimaginable amounts of snot coming from my nose!). Anyway, I dreamed that I came to see you and then realized what a bad move it was because you wouldn't be able to fight the germs I had clearly brought into your home! I left quickly, but felt such guilt. I woke up sooo happy that it didn't really happen. : )
    Hope you are all enjoying a healthy, snot free week.
