Tricia receives her third round of chemo tomorrow. Fortunately, she's receiving the treatment locally, so we won't have to travel to Durham. It may take the better part of the day, so remember her tomorrow as she spends most of the time in hooked up to IV's and such. She's been feeling good this week. She and Gwyneth had a great time in NJ with family and several friends who had not yet met Gwyneth or seen Tricia for more a year.
Gwyneth is doing very well. The biggest news is that she is now sleeping through the night on a regular basis (YEAH!!!!)...she's usually in bed by 9pm and wakes up between 5 and 7am, and then takes a short nap before finally being up for the day between 8 and 9am. This means that the rest of us are finally able to sleep as well. I seriously haven't slept this well in nearly 9 months...
We've determined that Gwyneth is an "active baby" (while reading one of those baby books)...she talks in her sleep, is constantly wiggling when she's awake, and rarely takes more than a few 20 minute naps during the day. It's exciting to see more and more of her personality coming out every day!
The Prime Only Dinner was fantastic. The organization was great, food was incredible, and everyone who attended has a wonderful time. A very special thanks to Club Violin for donating nearly two hours of live music, The Embellishers for decorating, and the several local artists and galleries (see list below) for donating some very beautiful photographs, paintings, sculptures and jewelry for the silent auction. The final total is still being tallied (and I'll let you know what it is when we have it in), but it's safe to say that this was our most successful fundraising event (outside of the Walk itself) so far, over the past two years!
