Surprise Party

14 Jul

balloon bearThe people in my lab are just stellar. They threw me a surprise party for my birthday! I’ve never had a surprise party before, that was so sweet. They got me candy, a balloon, there was a cake, a card…it was great! I also got this teddy bear Pandora charm in the mail from a secret/not so secret admirer. Now I have 5 charms :). I’m officially 23 now. I’ve made it through this past year. It was a struggle, but I’m here. I also got a visit from my friend Kristi. She did my nails, they’re zebra print now, and she got me a bracelet and little zebra print footies. She tried to cook for me haha she wound up breaking 10 of my eggs, spilling half of the ice cream, and starting a small fire in my tiny kitchen! That was eventful, but luckily nothing too bad happened, so I can laugh about it. Yeah, for my birthday, she tried to set my apartment on fire. The pie still came out nicely, though. This is much better than being cooped up in a hospital, that’s all I have to say about that!



Spring Break Cruise with My Bestie!

20 Mar

So…as I’ve been under tons of stress recently, I decided to go on the Spring Break trip with my class, and my doctors actually approved for me to go!! I really didn’t think they were going to go for it, but they did, ha!

My class is going on a 4-day cruise to the Bahamas…I’m a little nervous about the whole cruising thing, as I get nauseous enough on dry land, but you know what? Screw it…I’m all stockpiled up on Zofran and Emend and whatever other stuff I need (including those oh so important ones like Duragesic and Fentora), and I’m gonna have a blast :). What else was awesome was that my mom suggested that I invite my bestie, who lives in another state and teaches Kindergarten. Since this cruise is in the middle of the week, I figured she (having a real job) wouldn’t be able to go. I caller her anyways, and that’s her Spring Break, too!! What are the odds?!?  So, we’re going together! AHHH!!! I can’t contain my excitement, and neither can she!

This is exactly the kind of excitement that the both of us needed, and it WILL be epic! Now, all I have to do is stay just healthy enough to not ruin the plans, and I’ll tell you all about it when I get back. Yay!
