The first day of school

I feel like I am starting medical school 101. Learning about all the procedures, medications, etc. Today was my first day of school. I have a new haircut (very short-we'll see how long it lasts) New clothes (comfortable sweats.) A new notebook (to keep track of all the paperwork.) A new water bottle (gotta keep drinking lots of water) Lots of new books (I love to read!) and a new backpack (filled with chemo and two pumps) and also the love of so many people helping me begin this journey especially my family and parents. Thank you so much, I truly feel your support! And most importantly the spirit of my Heavenly Father. I feel his love and presence many times throughout the day. Lets just say we keep the lines open. Now where are my hiking boots?

I am sorry, I didn't know. Laura Lane told me the other day after she ran into you at the store. Your son told me about your blog. I will keep your family in my prayers. I admire your strength & courage.
