New News

Today we met with the Dr and after seeing how upset I was (I started crying!) about having two extra rounds he decided to change some things up.

I am no longer doing the two extra rounds (Yippee!), instead this week will be my last week of chemo and we will come down to Houston in September to have the residual cancer removed surgically.

I would obviously prefer that this round of chemo take care of what ever is left, but that probably won't happen, so I need to be prepared for surgery. At this point it is much better than two more rounds of chemo-trust me. Chemo sucks!

He also changed up the chemo a bit and instead of being on 4 drugs at once I will only have 3 drugs. He dropped the Interleukin-2, which is the nasty one. This means that we will get to head home on Monday instead of Wednesday. I am very happy about that. I already miss these two munchkins:

Houston, We Have A Problem....

The problem being, I don't wanna go! I wanna stay here and hug and kiss and play with my babies. We have really had a nice time this past week and I just don't want it to end!

However, I have no say in whether we go or not. Cancer has already made that decision for me and we leave this afternoon. However, one more round down means only two more rounds to go so I guess that is the good news, right?

Even though two extra rounds totally sucks, I am really, really excited to kick cancer's ass. Won't it be a wonderful day when I can get on here and say, guess what folks, I am cancer free! Oh, that will be a wonderful day and I am anxiously looking forward to that moment. I hope you are too!

Warning: This pictures have nothing to do with my post. I just love to be able to look at my blog when I am in Houston and see adorable pictures of my adorable children! Enjoy:)
Mmmmm, we love brownies!
Especially before they are cooked!

Our New House

For the last 6 months I have wanted to get the kids a playhouse. I always wanted one as a kid, but never got one. I tried to order them one for Easter and the one I wanted was always out of stock.

Well, after hunting and hunting, and debating and debating, I finally found the perfect playhouse for my little ones. Daddy spent 6 hours (or more) putting the perfect house together and the kids LOVE it! Especially Kyler! He plays in it for hours. It is great!

The finished product! Isn't it gorgeous?!

Family Reunion

This weekend we headed back to my hometown for the big reunion. The weekend was filled with family, food, and fun. I actually enjoy going to these things. It's nice to catch up with everyone and see how much their children have grown. As you know, family is very important to me, and even though I may not see a lot of them very often, it's comforting to know that your whole family is praying for you and thinking of you often.
