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.

family excursion to Disneyland

Yesterday was my birthday. If you live in the Southern California area, you are probably aware that Disneyland is celebrating birthdays this year by offering free entry into the park or a $69 gift card to spend in the park. Since I already have an annual pass, I wanted the gift card, and even though I was only 2 1/2 weeks from major surgery and I had a 2 1/2-week old baby to tote along, I was determined to make it to the park. My in-laws joined us for dinner and a brief stroll down Main Street. I also enjoyed my first visit to the baby care center. Disneyland is very baby friendly. I was pretty worn out by the time we got home, but I got my gift card, a Happy Birthday button, and Josie got a "1st Visit" button! It was a successful birthday excursion.

The Weston Family at Disneyland. A close look at the picture and you can see Sleeping Beauty's Castle behind us.

I took this picture this morning, after Josie had eaten and been changed. I could watch her sleep all day long. She looks so relaxed and peaceful, even if she is foaming at the mouth a little. :)

Heidi, that is so awsome. I feel so sad for mom's who feel that once they have a baby life stops or that they have to stay home for the first two months. Yeah for you girly. I can't wait to meet the little beauty. She is the sweetest little thing.

She is so sweet! She just looks so feminine and delicate. Glad you got to go out and have some fun at Disneyland for your b-day. =0)
