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.

drumroll please .......

It's a GIRL!

Please let me introduce to you Josephine Lois Weston. Josephine because her mama has always loved the name (and the many variations of nicknames with which it comes) and Lois after her precious grandmother who passed away last summer (and who, incidentally, worried I would never want or have kids of my own ... so this is also my posthumous "I told you so.") Here's a few pics from the ultrasound yesterday.

Little Jo's foot (which I've felt kick me at least once so far)

Profile of her head, and you can see her heart, too.

She's stretching here.

Now she's staring straight at the camera. Already photogenic, which in this family is going to be very important.
