Who waited this moment?!

Her feet were dancing the last ten minutes of the drops of chemotherapy. YES, she is done!!

Similar to how Booker was telling about his birthday to everyone three months ago, my mother-in-law was telling every nurse come by, "it is my LAST chemo treatment!"

She was getting anxious as the time approached to close, because nobody mentioned about the song that she had been desperate to hear.

Her emphasis on the LAST became even stronger and stronger.

However, nobody except me got it.

So, I simply asked them to sing it for her.

And you can also become happy by watching this.

Count down

She received two flower gifts today.

Her family members and friends, as well as my mother-in-law herself, have started counting down for the end of the cancer treatment.

Yeah hu-.

I am not big fun of winter but this year is the exception; I look forward the season to come.

P.S. I wish everybody could see her happy face in person when she found out the basket of flowers was from her husband and her son in Egypt.

Utah-Fall 2009

Thanks to my cousin's visit, we had a lot of opportunities to go around in Utah county. Today, we finished the day with the Heber Valley train ride -Sunset BBQ Train. As you might able to guess, it was cold. A lot of leaves started to turn the color to red. My mother-in-law, whose tempreture was lawer because of the cancer treatment, and us being Asians were freezing. But, we all enjoyed the beautiful scenary of Deer Creek Lake.

By the way, this was my mother-in-law's favorite picture of of the day: Her beloved son's butt with horse's butt.

Over the phone

Here we go. Everyone was talking to my father-in-law over skype. I thought that was such a cute picture and couldn't help myself not taking it.

My mother-in-law's cousins came to visit her with cafe rio as always. I am afraid that I might remeber them as "cafe rio persons."

Also, we cleaned the house for about one hour for preparation to my cousin's arrival from Japan. You know, everytime I clean, I swear that I won't ruin the efforts. As I was cleaning I began to wonder if we had had any kids to make that much mess. Well, at least we felt very accomplished after the cleaning.

"I am happy."

That's what my mother-in-law SAID on the day she came back from the chemotherapy.

That truely made my day. If you talk to her, you know that word is still true today.

She has been the most energetic among three of Tuellers in Provo. She watshed a movie with us that night while folding the laundries so we stayed up till about 11:30pm together. and guess what?!

Following morning at 7
am we all are in the Provo temple!!!

After the temple, we went to get her shot. I finally witnessed the $5,000 shot that she injects ev
ery other week. It was small.
Today, she is the first one to ready for the church, she cleaned up the kidtin after my husband's Iron shef's cook, and she said she would cook dinner tomorrow.

Yes, she is doing great.

Thank you a lot, grandma and grandpa for providing fun stay for her.

Today, my mother-in-law had to evacuate to grandpa's place because I got a little flu. Evey one including me thought I was a pregnant. So, it was funny to find out that I developed some kind of infection which causes nausea. OH, boy, I can't imagine having nausea every day. My mother-in-law is tough.

Despite of my illness, she is doing good.

Last night she spent over one hour preparing the FHE lesson for us. She taught us about the importance of reading scriptures with the experience when she was hit by a car.
Also, she went support group this morning and enjoyed herself.

I hope I can welcome her back when she finishes the second from the last chemo on Friday.

What pleases us and what exhaustes us

Here is the last piece of my husband's Pizza. I just could not stand watching the Iron Sheff on the fast Sunday. But sure enough, we had an Iron-Shef pizza for dinner thanks to the Iron Shef at home. So, my mother-in-law and I are very pleased with my husband watching something super productive, practical and bless our lives.

So, this picture is the outcome of what exhausted my mother-in-law on Saturday morning. Yes, Dannie is going to live in Arizona. She packed everything by herself! So, we just carried them. I like how she smiles when she talks about Dannie and how he is doing well recently. It tells me that the cancer does not destroy her motherhood.
She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. (Proverbs 3:15)
Yes, that is my mother-in-law.

We are back!

Off course, there are many excuses for how much I had to make you wait for my beloved-mother-in-law's update. But the biggest two were one, our camera was broken, two, we were on the vacation to CA. (and my mind was also set as vacation especially since Margaret planned me the idea of "taking a little blogging vacation." the difference was hers was a little and mine was continuous) Anyways, we are back and I am back.

Today's my mother-in-law's highlights are
-She cooked a week-frozen foods with sister Stice. So, now, she has all sorts of home-made frozen fun lunch.
-Also, after our afternoon classes, we three all went to get some really delicious boba drinks! This time, she got strawberry, David got blueberry, and I got Taro.

So, those are her today's highlights. Finally, I also had chance to talk with her over the dinner. We talked about the wonderful trip to California and how we are doing for the new exciting semester.

Well, this is kind of off topic, but allow me to share.

I am experiencing two major changes in my husband's life.
-One, he LOVES to watch Iron Sheff, therefore, he cooks AMAZINGLY. The best dish so far was baked fish in coconut milk. Ummmm....
-Secondly, he works from 7:45am for three days and 7am for two days in a week. So, like today, we left home at 6:40am. I think that is miracle.

Well, enough for today, I should get back to my homework. But thank you for your patience to wait that long. ALOHA.
