So, some chemo days are good, and some are not so good. Not bad - just not great. Today is one of those not great days. I felt pretty good this morning, but right now, I just wish that I could get rid of this nausea. I just feel icky.

On an up note, though, I'm now finished with 4 chemo treatments, and I only have 2 more to go. Praise God for his provision over me and over Brian. I still have had more good days than bad and I feel somewhat normal most of the time. It's a true miracle, and I know that the Lord's care for us is the only reason.

And now, I leave you with a few of my favorite pics from our Destin vacation.

Please don't judge my totally natural face. Thank you, chemo, for sparse eyelashes and eyebrows.

All dressed up for dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.
