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.

julie's birthday

We helped celebrate my sister-in-law's 30th birthday yesterday with a big BBQ bash at a park in San Diego ... here are a few pics from the day.

Happy 30th Julie!

My handsome husband, watching the gift opening.

Julie opening the gift from me ... a purse I knit. (See future post for more on the knitting.)

This is Emma, one of the kids belonging to a friend of Julie's ... she was LOVING trying on Lauren's sunglasses.

Lauren, with a sleeping Madeleine.


Heidi at 38 weeks pregnant. I think I might stop taking pictures of myself from now on ... without them I can live in the happy delusion that I don't look as big as a house.

Oohh. Is that the KnitPicks purse? Love it. And you are not as big as a house. You look like a mamma who is due any day.

On my first, I refused to get weighed at the hospital when I went in to deliver. I said they could use the weight from 3 days before at the Dr.'s office. I did NOT want to see the scale over 200...and I was close at the appointment. Whatever it can't be that bad....or if it is, then you're in good company.

But the pregnant belly pics are great for the future blackmailing of your kids: "See what I did for you!" You may feel huge, but you look so cute. And it will be over soon.
