I am going to update my pictures with you all first. Other details to come later.

Jake took all three girls to Six Flags over Spring Break. They went first thing in the morning and came home just before it down poured and a huge storm swept through the city. They had a lot of fun. I let Katelyn take my camera and she had fun being the group photographer.

Right before spring break, we had open house at Wood and Corey Elementary for Katelyn and Jadyn respectively. We enjoyed seeing all they had been working on lately. We got to meet Jadyn's best friend Tamon.

Katelyn has had two cotillion dances in the last two weeks. This marks the last of the dances for this year. She has had a great time. She loves to dress up and go out afterwards, I don't know about the actual lessons!

My arm is feeling so much better. I have pretty good mobility and the tingling sensation is almost gone. However, I have significant bone pain in my hip. It makes it very hard to walk. Medicine helps, but I have never been more eager to begin chemo! I have my first treatment on Friday the 13th. This will not be a scary day for me, but I will be greatly anticipating the chemo drugs attacking this bone cancer, wiping it out for good!

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Hey Jess,

Nice shirts! The pictures are great. I love when you add them. April 13th will be here before you know it. Until then, get some rest and do all that you need to do to feel better - read a good book, etc.

Thinking of you.
Love Janette

Now I feel bad about my previous comment that said that it was strange to look forward to chemo treatments! Not strange at all, I know, just practical and strong.

It must be hard to stay off your feet as a mother of three. I hope you find a way to rest your hip until it feels better.

Friday the 13th is a great day to start chemo! I hope it helps you to know that so many people pray for you (cuz I sure do)!
