What is going on?

Wednesday, July 11, 2012



I know you want to follow up what is going on so here it goes...

Today I started chemo therapy again! The medicines I have been taking is not working so the doctor told me that bad news today and started the chemo...

I will probable not lose my hair, thank god for that! But I guess there will be side effects.

I hope I can still work, we are doing so much cool things at work that I do not want to miss it! I just love my job!!!! :)

I cried and cried at the hospital, but now I am gathering my thoughts... It scared me when the doctor told us that we should hurry our wedding, but it was supposed to be 12.12.12 (cool date!) but I guess I am going to make some legal documents next week and get them stamped so we can get married.

I have always said that this cancer is not going to stop me from living and now I am in summer vacation from work and the weather here in Iceland now is fantastic good! Sun and more sun and more sun and no wind! LOVE IT!

I have also got some medicine for my sadness and that is helping me a lot to be positive and grap anything that comes in my hands.

I am doing my own greens and I have started taking them from the ground and wow they are so good!!!!











My hubby, son and I went to the beach (there is only one white sand beach in Reykjavik :) beaches in Iceland are all black) and had a fantastic time, also I had a sister day with my sisters :) and that was awesome. And one day we just went down town and did some stuff :)

You must try to live your life when you have the health and that is what I am doing... One day at the time. And wow I have a lot on my list that I want to do!

I hope you are enjoying the summer!!!! :)

    You are doing an amazing job! Keep it up.

    Do you have access to breast milk? Their is a bit of a trend going on over here with some women with cancer who are drinking 400mls of breast mikd a day to help fight the cancer. Because of all the wonderful properties in breastmilk it is great for helping the immune system. Would you be able to access any?

    Worth researching.

    No wind! In Iceland! You better enjoy that while it lasts. I'm glad mother nature has supplied good weather for you and your vegetables. Your son is getting so big. I can't believe it's been almost a year since I've seen you all. That guy with you on the bench must be the most photographed man in all of Iceland! I hope that you stay well through this round of treatment, keep your hair and lose the cancer. I know your wedding will be beautiful no matter what the date. Though I have to admit 12/12/12 would be pretty cool. I say save the date for a six month renewal of your vows. There's lots of Sparkers out here rooting for you. Stay positive. Stay strong.

    Today is also a good date, 12.7.12, and next month again there's 12.8.12 - all good days and best of all that you will be celebrating your love for each other. It's good that I don't write months the US way, isn't it :))
    Do share with us your wedding preparations and the celebration - stay strong and enjoy every moment of every day in every way you can. Love you! xxx

    I love that picture of you with a nice crisp glass of wine :) Your veggie gardens look beautiful. My husband and I are hoping to get to Iceland next year. I bet the beaches are incredible. I think of you and your amazing attitude often. Each moment is a gift!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and I shall put you on our prayer line here in Attleboro, Massachusetts. You are not alone because you have friends and family who will help you along the way to health. You even have your SPARKS friends! So there!
    Your precious little boy seems to like helping you in the garden. What is his name?
    You are a very pretty young lady with a beautiful smile.
    Thank you for sharing your story with us.
    Your vegetable garden is gorgeous and bright. I planted two tomato plants and they are withering away as I write this. I do not have a green thumb.
    My best wishes to you,
    Louise
