Hello my lovely friends!
How has your summer been so far? I hope you are enjoying the weather and I truly hope you are all well, happy and healthy.
This summer I’ve been stuck indoors because I had to be very careful not to get burned from the sun. Chemo can make you extremely sensitive to the sun. So I stayed indoors. I didn’t do much with the girls this summer. I feel bad because I usually love to take them to various places. But now that I’m done with chemo and have my energy back we will start exploring more.
I have completed my chemo and I am feeling so much better. I still have some side effects but they are not that bad compared to doing chemo. I still have 13 rounds of Herceptin to do and I receive the Herceptin via IV every 21 days. Herceptin can cause heart problems so every three months I will do a heart eco. I just did a heart eco last week and the doctor said that my heart hasn’t changed so this is good so far. He also said I should do some physical activity three times a week for 30 min. He also said that it should be something that I enjoy. I am still trying to get a routine going but I haven’t established my routine yet. I find it challenging to create a routine when you have kids. When you have children and two kittens life is so unpredictable! Oh yes and that’s another thing. We have two cats. Ziggy and Auggie. They are brothers and they are blue bi-coloured ragdoll cats. Ziggy is 9 months and Auggie is 4 months old. Ziggy is very smart and listens and Auggie is a rascal. It’s been a challenge to have them get along.
This week I start radiation. I’m nervous about radiation but I’m trying to stay positive and strong. I am trying to adjust to all the changes. There are a few things that are happening at the moment in terms of change but I’m trying to just focus on one thing and that’s to finish radiation. I have 19 rounds to complete. After that I’ll be able to tell you all about the new changes.
With everything that I’ve been through the past two years it’s very challenging at times to feel optimistic and excited. I am so grateful for all my family, friends, neighbours and online supporters like you. You keep me positive and motivated and offer me so much encouragement. I thank you for all your support and love.
I didn’t share my latest video with you so here it is:
Also I would like to say thank you to a few beautiful products that I won on Instagram:
I won lovely skincare Beauty by ZERO and I love these so much. Gentle and all natural plant based products. I already started using them and love them so much. These can be purchased at shoppers Drug Mart.
I also won beautiful Maybelline LIFTER lip glosses and Garner Micellar waters. I absolutely love these products so much. The LIFTER glosses smell like coconut and are so beautiful and not sticky at all and Garnier Micellar water is the best to remove makeup and refresh the face. So lovely and hydrating at the same time. So blessed to have won all these beautiful products.
For a couple of years I’ve uploaded a lot of Autumn posts and this Autumn I am hoping to have a few blog post created. Not as many as previous years but a couple of good ones. I just really love Autumn so much. Don’t you?
This month I was fortunate to attend an event. It’s been many years since I’ve been to one so this was so incredible! I brought my daughter with me. She Absolutely loved it! The event was for Leuchtturm 1917 company. https://www.leuchtturm1917.ca I’ve been using their bullet journal for two years and I love them. I’ll have a blog post up from the wonderful experience soon.
Thank you for reading today’s blog post my lovely friends! I will be writing about the Leuchtturm1917 Event next. Oh it feels so good to be blogging again!
Thank you and remember to live your life to the fullest!
