“The plan as of now is to do 6 cycles of chemo. I will go once every 3 weeks for about 5 hours each session. If I start when I plan to start I could possibly be finished by May and hopefully have hair starting to grow back for the summer. This is timed out well because I know two beautiful couples that expect me to be shaking my tail feather at their weddings in August. I intend to do that just that (Katie/Bobby/Molly/Josh- when it’s time for the bouquet toss I make NO promises that I won’t throw my wig into the crowd of bachelorettes just to mix things up). That’s all I have for now. Thank you again for all of the love, positivity and prayer. Keep it coming.”
I wrote the portion above on December 11th of this past year. It was on the last day of my hospital stay at Yale for my first surgery. I was anxious and afraid of what was to come. Nonetheless, I had a glimmer of optimism. Four of my loveliest friends were getting married this summer and I would be damned if I wasn’t there to witness two beautiful days.
I am so proud to say that I did in fact “shake my tail feather” extensively last weekend at Molly and Josh’s wedding. CONGRATS MR. AND MRS. SOLARI!!!!!!!!!!
I am also pleased to share that tonight I will have the honor of attending Katie and Bobby’s rehearsal dinner and tomorrow their wedding. I cannot wait for another beautiful day with two of the greatest friends a girl could have.
Pictures to come!!!!
(p.s. there was ultimately no wig tossing as my hair is coming in fierce)
