But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

I have a new "baby" and her name is Portia after me getting a port yesterday! Linda had her strapped in to the seatbelt, sitting up all pretty with a pink bow on her head and her paws laced together with the ribbon. Sharon sent her to me and she is just too cute! They even let me take Portia in to the operating room with me! I held her all day yesterday and now she is with my other 3 "babies"- the one Karen gave me 8 years ago, Tasha the one Tia gave me- she even says a prayer- and I think we call the 3rd one BOO BOO- Linda got her at Sox park- she is pink and wears a white hoodie. The nurses at chemo think I am already nuts- and now Portia- who is real baby sized- will be going to chemo, too. The nurses said I should get a pink wagon to carry all of our stuff. You guys should see Linda and I come in to chemo- 2bags each and Linda with this big honkin'(but beautiful) Coach purse. So Sharon- we named her Portia without your input- but it is a beautiful name for a cute baby! Linda showed me how Sharon put her Portia's paws to her eyes and cried- no more needles!
