Here I sit in paradise; I have the sun on my face & the ocean breeze has me wrapped in it’s arms. Our vacation has not disappointed & I can’t wait to share pictures when we return.
One of the main reasons Tony wanted me to come along on this trip was because the timeline also fell on my two year mark of being on chemotherapy. This is a significant date for us, because we’re hoping after three years of taking this drug, we will have options and be able to move forward & start a family.
Last night, over drinks at the pool, we got to talking about how crazy the next two years are going to be for us. We have a jam packed summer & fall with wedding celebrations, moving my youngest sister to college, and all other social events we normally try to attend- Gopher football games, bonfires, etc… Winter and next spring will also bring big events for us- planning, planning, and more planning the next steps when the three year mark hits. Then, hopefully after that three year mark, the following year will include anything and everything involving getting ready for a baby.
My two year appointment at the Mayo Clinic on May 1st, will hopefully shed light on the avenue we should be heading toward. As you know, most of this being out of my control drives me absolutely crazy, however, I have learned I CAN control being ready by researching, getting whatever tests accomplished that need to be completed, and knowing I will be okay with whatever is in store for us.
Tonight.. Tony and I will be celebrating. We have made it through another year, we have checked off more challenges faced, and we are in paradise together!
Cheers! Here’s to another couple days of fun in the sun! xo
