  1. What are you up to today? This week?

    Thanks everyone for the love, support, prayers + hugs. So good to be back online Had my 3rd chemo treatment last thursday. 3 more to go. I'm half way there! I go every 3 weeks. The first week after treatment is awful. Very tired and much body pain from the white blood cell booster. Blaahhcckk. This Saturday I go to a hair replacement salon to be fitted for a wig. I've tried 4 wigs and they were all hideous. Pretty funny actually. I had a good laugh when I looked in the mirror. This place I'll go to. They custom fit you. Very expensive. But I'm worth it! By the way, not to worry, the cancer is gone, Just have to have chemo and then radiation for insurance that it's "completely gone". More of a chance that it never comes back. I've moved up to the main house upstairs. Need to set up a table and bring up my dollhouse and start working on it again. Little here, little there. When I have the energy. Also want to start miniature shopping again soon. See what's new, and on sale. I don't get on the computer all that much. But good to be coming back to the forum. I missed it and all of you immensely. Didn't know until I came back and read all the replies from my post in chit chat. Brought tears to my eyes. Bless you all!
  2. Ok, well I put my dollhouse away for a while. Sorry to say. I was diagnosed w/ breast cancer in July, had surgery, then.. My mom passed away two days after I got home. Oh boy. well, I'm on my 3 round of chemotherapy.. got 3 more to go. As soon as I get my enery back, I'll start back on my tennyson dollhouse. I think of you all very often, it's just been a rough few months for me. I'll be looking through all the forums and pics of the progress you have all made since I've been gone. I hope to see you or hear from you soon. Michelle
