What a beautiful Christmas Day!! I slept so much better last night thanks to some Benadryl, but I could tell my brain was still pretty foggy when I woke up. The girls opened their stockings first thing, then we had a nice big breakfast, Kent read the Christmas story from Luke 2:1-20, and we all opened presents. You can see in the photo that I got my first chemo hat from Kylie. She also embroidered the pink ribbon on a gray hoodie for me. The pink roses came from a sister-in-law in Albuquerque – 4 dozen of them!!

The girls went to work for a few hours, and I went back to bed! It was another nice hour and a half nap, then Kent woke me up for lunch. More like a snack since we were going to have Christmas dinner at his brother’s house across town at 3:30. My tummy has been feeling better today. I haven’t felt really hungry, but I always feel better after eating and it gives me a bit of energy! There were a few things that didn’t taste quite like they used to. I seem to be craving protein today – sausage for breakfast and ham for Christmas dinner tasted especially good!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas too!! I think I’ll be turning in early tonight…hoping for more energy tomorrow!
