Have you ever spent an hour crafting a difficult blog post in the middle of the night, only to have it dissapear entirely on you?
Yeah, me too. Now.
Suffice it to say that I love my kids, I am not a fan of chemo, I have been up all night all week, and hilarity ensued.
Oh, and I gave out some pretty blog bling to some pretty great people. Since that’s the only part that’s really uplifting, I’ll rewrite that part here.
This pretty piece of blog bling came from Zemaida.
I’m passing it on to C.E., to Jessica and Matt, and to my cousins who traveled from Ohio to walk with me in the Race for the Cure last week. I know I owe another post with pictures and what I saw at the walk — it’ll be posted this weekend.
To Stella, who Can’t Complain Any More Than Usual, especially today. She’s going to live. Hooray! I heart Stella. I had the opportunity to meet up with Stella and Mama C at the Natural History Museum last week, and it was really great to meet them in person. They are really wonderful, I learned a lot from some quick chats with Stella about the surgeries!
To Fizzledink, who was a good friend to me last year, and is a good friend to me now. Welcome back.
And to Pinwheels and Unringing the Bell, who started a really neat writing group this month that I heard about through The Individual Voice. It’s called Get it Down: 31 for 21. They proposed 31 posts, one each day of October, to raise awareness of Down’s Syndrome, which affects the 21st chromosone. I wasn’t organized enough to do it this year, but wanted to, and was moved to participate in honor of the Mustard Seed community that I got to know through my Mississippi church. They field a mean handbell choir, and they have great programs to support families affected by Down’s Syndrome and similar. For them, I wanted to participate. Since I didn’t, I want to recognize those who did. Y’all rock!
Big news about the IBC media campaign is coming up … more tomorrow!
