So much news...

Goodness, five days goes by, and there is just so much to write about!

First of all, and most importantly, if you didn't see my Facebook update:

The results are in, and I am officially in remission for five years. This is such good news that I don't even know where to begin with the happy, relieved feelings. It seems like the last 5 years have taken forever to pass. And I think of who I was back then - a recent graduate, unemployed, newly engaged, broke, and totally insecure about the future - to now: a mother, happily married for almost 5 years, with a career I love (and no longer broke, big bonus).

I'm not out of the woods, of course - my doctor tells me that 10% of the people who have Hodgkins relapse after 5 years, but the odds get better and better each year that passes. And I plan on sticking around.

On to other news:
  • Dad and Joan arrive tomorrow for the weekend - I'm so excited for them to get to see how big and fun Milo has gotten.
  • Today Jorge and I got roped into helping his sister prepare and distribute 200 home-cooked meals to raise money for her daughter to be a princess in a Mardi Gras ball next year. Made me feel grateful to have a boy.
  • Sneak peeks of Milo's professional photos are up on the web!!! Check out my super-talented friend Amy's blog at: http://imagesbyamy.blogspot.com/. I can't wait to see the rest! We had a great time wandering around the French Quarter taking pictures.
