UpDaTeS

I am now 31 weeks along but yet feel like I'm due any day.  However, I was looking through some pics of when I was pregnant with Olivia and realized that I've still got a ways to GROW.  I get rediculously huge when I'm pregnant.  Oh well, it's all worth it!

I haven't updated about my mom's cancer in quite a while...
She finished her first round of chemo a couple of weeks ago.  The first round was supposed to take about 2 months...it took more like 3 1/2.  Her cell counts had a lot of trouble rebounding and that caused the treatments to be delayed.  For those that don't know or forgot, mom is a 1st grade teacher so she has had to stay home and has not been able to work. 
That all changed last week.  She began her second round of chemo last week.  This time she is going in once a week (on Thursdays) for 12 weeks.  Since her shots are on Thursdays she is going back to work on Mon-Thurs and then "recovering" Friday, Sat. and Sunday.  It's a grueling schedule and I'm worried about her being exposed to germy kids all day especially since her immune system is so compromised and even more so because of the terrible flu season approaching.  Her doctor and her principal have strongly advised her to wear her mask.  After she completes this cycle then they will evaluate if radiation is needed.  Please keep praying!
We will travel home for Thanksgiving and let mom rub my baby belly one last time since she won't be able to make it to College Station for the birth and we will not be going back to Abilene for Christmas.  Super bummed about that...

If you're still with me here's a sweet picture...



Where is the spell check button?  Has anybody that posted lately noticed thiers go missing?  Am I losing it?

Still praying for your mom. I am so saddened by the whole situation.

Hope I get to see you soon! Maybe we should take a 4 hour shopping trip to baby GAP a few days after you're due! :-) haha What a fun memory!
