Happy arrival from NY

Yes, that's our youngest daughter, Amy, and Bruno arriving at the Raleigh airport on Saturday.  Our visits are far and few between so we were so happy to see them.  We had some great family time together over the weekend with the two of them, and our other daughter,Jen, Rob and Maddie.  
Another arrival will be coming in September when Amy and Bruno will be the happy parents of a new baby girl!  We are so excited!  Granddaughter #2.  

And hopefully by September my cancer treatments will be over and I will be finished with this long process and maybe start feeling like myself again.  
Chemo treatment # 7 is coming up this Thursday.  I am struggling right now with numb fingers and feet.  It's hard to do the simplest of things like button my blouse and open lids.  

Hanging onto good thoughts and happy days ahead.  
Until next time.......

Oh, how lovely. Your photos really tell the story of what a lovely time you had. Congratulations on being a grandmother again. My daughter is expecting too. A baby boy in August, but it will be my first.

Praying that it's easier for you to get through chemo.
