It's Scan Day #2

I had my CT scan this morning that will tell us if the new chemo drug is working, not working, keeping the cancer stable, etc. I know alot of people are praying for us today, and I've been able to keep my emotions in check much better this time around. I think I've gotten alot of practice lately in blocking off the worrisome thoughts that want to run rampant in my head; alot of practice in trusting that God is still in control. Those little anti-anxiety pills Dr. W prescribed for days like this don't hurt either. :) We should know results sometime in the next day or two.

Because my scan was so early in the morning, Brian and I had a couple of hours to run errands. We ended up having lunch, hitting up Target and Trader Joe's. I had a whole lot more shopping planned, but I was (and am) feeling more and more exhausted as the day went on so we came home early and enjoyed a quiet afternoon (the kids are at Gram and Gramp's house).

Do you all know that tomorrow is December 1? How did that happen? Where did the fall go? I am struggling with feeling overwhelmed with everything that I want to get done (most of it fun stuff, although there's definitely some work in there). I want to continue traditions we already have, make new ones, keep up with scrapping those memories, etc. And that doesn't even take the house, laundry, Christmas shopping, or meals into account. I really need to take a little time to make a list, which would make me feel so much more organized and on top of things. Maybe I'll do that tonight and wake up ready to go tomorrow.

Still haven't gone through my senior photo shoot or my pictures from Thanksgiving other than to pull out a few here and there. This is one Becky took of me and Brian right after he arrived Wednesday night. We're embracing the haze, my fellow photographers.
