Surgery Update

‘A quick update — Jen had her surgery this morning, and it went well. She is very tired and trying to get some rest. She is calling this surgery the Final Four as she’s hoping it’s the 4th and last surgery.
Thanks for all of your love and support. I’m sure Jen will post more details as she starts to recover.

Some Laughter as I Head Towards Surgery

My friend Paul is known for writing great Top 10 Lists. What a nice present to receive this hysterical list in my inbox as I head towards surgery.  I have to laugh now because after tomorrow, laughing will hurt a lot!
Top 10 Reasons Jen is Fed Up with Cancer!
 10.  She’s tired of explaining to everyone that Sarcoma is a form of cancer, not a type of sarcasm unique to New Jersey natives.
9.  She drops a small fortune on a great looking wig and the paparazzi repeatedly mistake her for Beyonce.
8.  She’s been to chemo so many times she can bake a potato in less than 3 minutes or thaw a frozen turkey in 9 and a half.

The Countdown to Surgery Begins

I am so sorry that I haven’t written in a while.  I have been travelling a lot for work and for pleasure. First, I spent a week in Los Angeles for business. I had a ton of meetings and finished the week at the Kid’s Choice Awards. It was an amazing event and I was thrilled that the show received the highest ratings and most kid votes (91MM!)  in the show’s history.  In addition to attending the awards show, highlights of the week for me were going to a live cast reading of SpongeBob SquarePants and sitting at a restaurant near Turtle from Entourage.  You gotta love LA!
 While I was there, I worked at the local Equinox (down the street from my hotel).  I was so excited to see one of the General Managers who I had met earlier in the year.  He wants to bring Cycle for Survival to the West Coast which is very exciting.

Then, I spent a wonderful week in Arizona with Dave’s family. It was absolutely beautiful …
