I want to begin this post by saying....ELLA IS SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!!!!!!! Joel and I have dreamed of this day and it is finally here!!! She just started sleeping in her crib, in her nursery and all night long last Saturday. I don't even know what to do. She is so much happier and rested. It is amazing! She is also taking great naps. I've been able to get so much done and even exercise everyday! YEAH!!!!!
Yesterday, I had a visit from one of my very good friends from college Kathy (Ross) Garvin. We had such an awesome visit. Her little boy, Luke, is precious. We caught up on the last 10 years. We had a lot to talk about!! Thanks for coming Kathy!
I also wanted to share a really neat opportunity I had this week. My chemo nurse, Dusty, asked me a few weeks ago if I would be willing to go with her to a Relay for Life meeting and share my story. The Relay for Life is sponsored by the American Cancer Society. They wanted to have someone who was going through treatment now share their experience. I was honored that out of all the patients she sees on a weekly basis, she asked me. I shared briefly what it's like to have cancer and recieve chemo. It was wonderful and the group responded so well. I also had the privelage of meeting several amazing cancer survivors. After the meeting, I met one of the VP's from the hospital where I work and he asked if I would be willing to share my story with employees of Palmetto Health. Of course I responded, "Yes!!!!" After he spoke with me, a regional employee for the ACS asked me if I would be willing to share at other Relay for Life meetings in the area! I'm so honored that people would want to hear my story and that I truly could make a difference in the fight of cancer. Oprah here I come!!!!!!
