Savana

Wow, hard to believe it's been so long since I've posted. Not that I haven't had anything to post, just been too busy to post, I guess.
A couple of weeks ago I had a wonderful trip up to West Virginia to visit with one of my very best friends. My friend, Savana, continues to be in the fight of her life. She was diagnosed with breast cancer a year or two before my mom and has fought the fight with many ups and downs over the years. The cancer has slowly been showing up in other organs and we received the devastating news last month that it is now in her brain. It completely breaks my heart to imagine our lives without her so I choose not to. And thankfully she has chosen the same and she plans to continue to fight as hard as she always has. She has too much to live for... her husband, three precious children, two beautiful sisters, a special mom, and fabulous friends like me! : )
Our other friend, Caroline and I went up to spend time with her before her next round of treatments. The three of us got a hotel room together and basically had a three day pajama party. We shopped, we ate out, we went sight seeing, we ate out (yes a lot!), and mostly, we giggled and laughed like little girls and the best part was that we didn't mutter that ugly "cancer" word one time.
