Even though the past two weeks have been enormously difficult, they've made me realize just how much I have to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for all the friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers who've sent flowers, cards, useful care packages, and notes. I sucks I had to get cancer to realize just how loved I am.

So much love in our dining room

I'm so thankful we live in San Diego where my family and "extended family" are. Of course my parents have been amazing -- coming to countless doctors appointments with us, buying us dinner, and just being there for us.

I'm thankful that I work for a great company that has good benefits for situations like mine and I'm thankful that the leadership I work with has been so supportive during my diagnosis.

I'm thankful that I'm still pregnant with this baby girl and I'm still feeling well enough to attend her baby shower next weekend.

27 weeks!

I'm thankful for the cancer survivors that I've met so far who have given me words of wisdom, support, inspiration, and guidance on everything from what products to use during chemo to what doctors to consult.

I'm so thankful for all the prayers from people I both know and don't know. I know there are individuals, families, bible studies, and other groups of people around the country praying for us which is just awesome. Keep 'em coming! God is faithful.

Finally, I'm eternally thankful for my amazing husband. We never could have guessed that the "in sickness" part of our  "in sickness and health" vows would come so soon, but I'm so blessed that he is the one who's by my side in all of this.
