Chemo cycle 4 update

So here I am in my comfy chair on monday...Brian my crafting buddy escorted me as I am too woozy to drive afterwards...sporting the wig...and bummed you can't see the cute hydrangea bobby I made just for the day...rats...will have to take another pic and upload it later...I sure do look happy...but it's the days after that I don't capture in pictures...scarey!
Brian is making his mom a shall with wool spun by him! It's wool from rare sheep in the UK...i keep forgetting the names of them...rhymes with Scotland...rats, cotland maybe? I'll get back to you on that....sleep deprivation (aka insomnia) and toxins on the brain have me all confused.
I certainly don't need one of these...but I wish i could kick back with a cocktail and relax this you love it? need to make it in pink for a cosmopolitin and a few more treats...stay tuned...this one went to a special bartender friend that hooked me up with all kinds of wig treats from her aunt's shop, A Special Place.

I just added this pick to use it as a metaphore...feeling like i'm floating alone somedays, but at least I'm moving in the forward direction...right?

Hey thanks to my chemo buddy Sara for this poem...hope she starts her blog soon!

Worthy of My Friends

It is my joy in life to find
At every turning of the road
The strong arm of a comrade kind
To help me onward with my load.

And since I have no gold to give,
And love alone must make amends,
My only prayer is, while I live-
God make me worthy of my friends.
-Frank Dempster Sherman


  1. That is a really nice picture of you.

    You have the right attitude to beat this disease and you will come out of this stronger than ever.

    Brian is such a good friend and I'm glad you have him to help you. I'm friends with Brian also.

  2. It's so nice to see you smiling and looking great in your beautiful wig! :D You have such a great attitude going through this difficult journey and I'm sure you're gonna beat this! Keep it up and take care!

  3. Jodi,

    Gina's cousin Christine from NY....You look terrific and I know that you are strong. By the time this is over you will feel like Wonder Woman. This disease gave me strength that I never thought I had. I am getting ready to do the Avon Walk for a Cure in October, 39 miles in two days??? Never before would I have attempted this. Crazy! Next year perhaps you can do it with me!! Maybe G too! Take care, I hear your almost done with your treatments and you can celebrate. Call me if you have any questions.


  4. You look great on your pic! I love the new hair clips!

    You are still in my thoughts & prayers! Stay strong!! :) Lots of hugs sent you way! :)

  5. Such a nice post and blog! Cute crafts!

    Best wishes.
