Not such smooth sailing

The chemo this time hasn't been as nice as before. 

I felt ok Thursday and Friday, though extra tired. Saturday I had some trouble with nausea, heartburn, the usual. Just more so than usual. 

Today has been long. I haven't wanted to do much and I haven't been hungry at all. Mostly laying on the couch with Dan worrying over me. 

It definitely isn't as bad as the first chemo though and for that we are thankful.

Dan has a little bit of a sore throat so of course we are both freaking out that he is going to get me sick. But at this point, there isn't a lot we can do and there is no point worrying about it. I'll keep my room at school sanitary and hope that I still have enough of an immune system to fight off what Dan has.

November 7th is still my day. It is still the day I keep in my mind when I don't feel well and when I tell myself I just want this to be over. 

As my dad always says, you can do anything for 4 weeks.

And I have to say thank you to everyone for your emails, notes and prayers. It has been great to have such support surrounding us, and I feel I can never thank everyone enough. But I will try.

Another cake I made! I was pretty proud of this one. It was chocolate
with swiss meringue buttercream icing. 


  1. Hang in there Julia, we love you!

  2. Oh Julia, as Tyler said, we love you. Hang in there! You got this! (*rubs shoulders and squirts water in your mouth as you head back into the ring with your boxing gloves*)

    If it makes you feel any better, that cake is GORGEOUS. Damn girl, it's so fancy!

    Anyhoo, I miss you!! And I can't wait to see you in November!!!
