Since November of 2014 Baby Chang passed Kindergarten and First Grade with all As. She has taken piano lessons, hip hop dance, gymnastics, went to a rowing and horse back riding camps and grown about two feet. She is now tall enough to ride most of the rides at Six Flags.
Prairie Dad has continued performing in Houston meaning he is here more than anywhere else. He has gotten amazing reviews! Sadly he has had to say good bye to his Mom and a beloved Aunt. Which has allowed us all to spend more time with his dad. He has also become a landlord, renting out his Aunt's house which he inherited.
I am continuing stage managing but starting to realize that it may no longer be conducive to being a mom to a seven year old... Needless to say I've been spending a lot of time soul searching and trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Top on my list is to just win the lottery.
Since this blog started as a place to discuss my cancer status it is only appropriate I bring you up to date. Six months ago I had a PET scan that was not clean. There were lymph nodes that measured larger than in the past. A week ago today another scan was taken and I'm happy to say it was completely clean! The spots of concern were completely gone. Most likely my body was just doing it's job and fighting an infection. So though I'm once again in the clear there will be more scans in my future. I have to say though of all the tests I go through I don't mind the PET. I think of it as my time away. Seriously once they inject you there is nothing you can do for one hour but listen to music or a book. I don't know about you but that one hour is magical no texting, no talking on the phone, no reading (i.e. no email or Facebook) pure heaven. Plus they cover you up in a warm blanket so usually it means a really amazing nap.
The summer is going by a little too quickly for my taste but we are enjoying some downtime. For the first time in a very long time all three of us are home and enjoying being together with very few commitments. So here is to summer vacation even when it feels like 106!
