Treatment Day 3: Quick Update

Just a quick update... I am doing ok. I am very fatigued, but so far no nausea or other side effects. I am hungry and worn out, surprisingly similar to the first trimester of pregnancy (calm down! I'm not pregnant! ha ha).

Thank you for the messages and cards and notes, it helps keep my spirits up to read them. My mom is staying with us for a few days to tend to me and we have hired nannies to help with the kids and around the house. Yesterday was Jason's last day of working two jobs, and the kids are looking forward to their classes starting up next week (Ronan will be in preschool 5 days, older 3 will attend co-op classes they have been taking for 3 years, and Brayton takes a couple of online classes).

So at this moment, all is well.

Lesson for today: sometimes life hands you lemons. What you choose to make with those lemons is up to you.


  1. Colleen all your BW friends are pulling for you and along for the ride. You are an inspiration to all of us.
    Life isnt fair at all sometimes but your outlook can certainly teach us all lesson
    Btw I hate hair sometimes too. I think bald can be sexy! You hang in there sexy Momma!

  2. Hi Colleen, They always say that a positive attitude is one of the most important things in recovery and better health. You have that without a doubt so I know you will beat this!!!

    You know, for some, every cloud has a silver are one that also sees the cloud is actually just "off-white"! :-)

    I quote many of the other comments, you are inspirational!!! If more people had your attitude, the world would be a much better place!

    You are in our thoughts and prayers every day!

    Love, Todd, Kate & Nicholas
