My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

the first Hammer baby shower

Last Saturday the Lindley women headed down to San Diego for a baby shower for my sister-in-law Julie. She and my brother are having the first Hammer grandbaby! Its all very exciting. A couple months ago we found out its going to be a girl, and on Saturdy we learned the name they'd picked out .... Madeleine. So cute!! She's due at the end of August, so it was definitely time to throw a party and shower the new parents with lots of presents. Here are the highlights:

Julie ... cutest pregnant woman I've known.

The cake, baked and designed by my cousin Lauren.

Lunch out on the patio at my Aunt Jean's.


The quilt my mom made.

A baby bathing suit.

The blanket I made.

The Hammer girls (Mom, Amy, Julie, me). (Rachel couldn't make it, she was in Washington.)

Liana models a new bath towel.

Embellished onesies by Amy. I think Julie likes it.

It's a good thing this baby is being loved with handmade gifts.
