Thanks for Making Me a Fighter

I feel like I'm headed into the final round in my fight today, even though I have several more milestones to complete.  Today is my last major chemotherapy and my last round of Taxotere!  I know what to expect and I have an idea of how long it will take me to recover but I'm trying not to let that dampen my spirits. 
I am ready to just "accept" the side effects - muscle aches, joint pain, change in taste, nosebleeds, and fatigue.  The past few treatments I really try to just power through, but I am wondering if it takes me longer to recover.  My doctor did say the effects are cumulative so every treatment gets a little more intense than the previous one. 

I don't have the pictures uploaded from Evan's baptism but he was a perfect little angel...more to come on that great day soon.

Also, we spent Sunday evening in Saugatuck getting family photos taken.  This is one of our favorite pictures of Brian, Gavin, Cohen, Evan and me.  Can't wait to see the rest of them.
