Well folks – sorry we haven’t updated in a while. Just been so busy and crazy, it’s just been really hard to post an entry.
Yes, it’s Monday and we are at BI for our usual treatment. Jess has her port in now, so they have to draw her blood and get that ready for her chemo which should start around 11am.
Things at home have been pretty good. Sad to say, but we get used to the roller coaster with Jess and how she is feeling, but she has had more good days than bad, which we are grateful for. I think what shocks me the most is she is probably in much more pain and discomfort than she ever let’s on. I had a kink in my neck last night and had to tell everyone. Just amazing how strong she is.
We didn’t have the kids much this weekend so we got to spend some great quality time together. It was so great to sit and chat and hang out without the tornado going on around us. She continues to amaze me at her outlook on life and how she never does anything for herself.
She did get to go to a “bag party” on Friday night. She was tired when she got home but I know she loved seeing her friends. Happy she was able to do that.
Some updates on the kids. Izzy and Hannah have been in school for a month now. They just love it. Both are so comfortable and excited to go each day. It’s amazing. Love seeing them happy and smiling a lot! My Courtney is doing great, doing so great with all A’s on her last report card. Justin is doing real well also, just amazes me how strong he is becoming on and off the court. Next 24 months will just be so nuts but I know I will be sad when he leaves for college. I may just go with him!!
School vacation was last week and I took the girls to Framingham and Plaster FunTime. Two and a half hours later, we had three masterpieces, no fights and one tired Scott. We then went to Olive Garden for lunch which is always comical with those three and then we finished at Dick’s where we got the girls all set for spring Tee Ball and Lacrosse. I was absolutely wiped out when we got home.
Justin has his two week break from Rivers in March and we will head to the Big East Tourney in NY for a few days. I have a lot of work there so it will be a combo trip where we watch some hoops and Justin will get to go on some appointments with me. I’m so excited to spend that time with him.
As for Jess, she has been busy keeping the house clean, taking care of the girls and me and my troops. Always one to make dinner, cupcakes, just incredible how hard she works for us. She also got a food processor, so along with the juicer, she is always making something.
One of our big announcements is we are moving. We found a 4 bedroom Duplex in Ashland and we move in April 1. I’m so excited to start this new phase with our family, I can barely contain myself. Jess has all the plans drawn up on who gets which room, and how we will get everyone what they need. I have loved the townhouse and the memories there have been awesome but to get so much more space for us and the kids, nothing better.
Jess has some scans in March and as we pray that things continue in a positive direction, she could be down to chemo every three weeks vs the weekly chemo we go to now. That would be just incredible. We know she will have chemo for the rest of her life, but to get down to once every three weeks would be simply amazing.
We hope everyone is well. Thanks again for all the love and support we have received. It’s really been amazing and wonderful.
Loves to everyone…
Jess and Scott
