Hello all! This is my last post as a 31 year old...wow. Time sure flies, huhh? At 1:04am I will be 32 years old. This so far has been the best birthday ever and it's not even my birthday yet!! I have been getting birthday cards in the mail since Friday...it started with 6 on Friday, 3 on Saturday, 14 on Monday, 15 yesterday and get this, 40 today. I'm not kidding...there were 40 birthday cards in my mailbox today. I wonder what the mailman thinks? I mean who gets 79 birthday cards for their birthday? It's not even my birthday yet!! Absolutely unreal. I feel about as overwhelmed as I did when I found out I had cancer with the amount of support given to me. This is just unbelievable. It means the world to me that so many people have taken the time to send me a birthday card. Thank you to everyone. It's amazing. A special thank you to my Mom, the mastermind behind this amazingness. :)
Obviously I have been feeling like a million bucks. I have developed some weird hand thing though. Not quite sure what it is but the nerves in my hands are acting up and it hurts pretty bad. I think I may call my chemo nurses either tomorrow (if I remember...I may just be on cloud 9 all day that I won't notice my painful hands) or Friday to see what they have to say. I'm sure it's nothing, but I always get weirded out when it's just not "normal!" Rather be safe than sorry.
I still am in shock with the outpouring of love on my birthday. I have cried so many happy tears in the last few days reading all this wonderfulness.
Tomorrow will be another fantastic day...at least in my mind! It's my favorite day of the year. My day! I deserve it, especially this year!! :) Plans are to go see "Sex and the City 2" with gaggle of girls and then I'm going to dinner with my Mom and Dad at Pizzaria Bianco. Should be yummy. Of course I will be super excited to get home and check my mailbox...ha. I highly doubt there will more than today's count of 40. Wow.
So onto my 32nd year. I know it will be a great one, it has to be. This time next year I will be looking back on all of this with another big smile on my face because by then I will have beat it!
Thank you all sooooooo much for remembering my birthday. I really don't think you could have forgotten though...it's not like I haven't said anything. Hee hee hee. I really do appreciate it though from the bottom of my heart.
Love, The Birthday Girl (in 52 minutes)
