In honor of living five years with brain cancer, I threw myself a party, invited friends and family, and drank a margarita as big as my head. I was touched by the turnout.
In this photo in the back, are me and Bruce, in the front are my my friends LaRae and Carrie and their spouses, Larry and Pat. My friend Mark Cook (whose wife passed away from breast cancer) graced us with his presence, as did his girlfriend Janna, and their kids.
I was very sad my friend and classmate Paula could not make it, but I recorded some messages and texted them to her later.
This past Friday, Paula began chemo. With my husband's permission, I took a cab to be with her and her husband brought me home. She's looking great!
