Chemo continues to go as well as can be expected. After tomorrow morning's treatment I will only have one infusion left. This is mind-boggling to me, as it feels like chemo has just become a way of life. After February 1 I will be completely done with this part of my treatment and looking (forward?) to surgery. That part still scares the bejesus out of me, so I'm trying not to think about it just yet.
Aaron's mom, Becky, was here for 5 days. We picked her up from the airport Sunday afternoon, went to the grocery store where we proceeded to buy half the store, and went home before the snow started. We woke up to this sight on Monday morning:
This may be only four inches of snow, but to the folks in Atlanta, it's a week off from school. You read that correctly. A WEEK! Granted, there was a layer of ice over the snow, but there was some good melting/road treatment going on prior to Friday. I hope the kids in Minnesota don't hear about this. Because mom-in-law was here and because we were well-stocked, we had a great time being stuck indoors, cooking, baking and hanging out by the fire.
On Friday I dropped Aaron and his mom off at the airport (Aaron went to Minneapolis for the weekend) and met my dear friend, Ashley, along with much of her family at the Varsity drive-in. She was in town due to unfortunate circumstances, as both of her mother's parents passed away within a week of each other, but we were able to share some hugs and catch up a bit over a quick lunch.
