Meg- I'm a 33 year old middle school teacher (7th grade ELA & Social Studies) I am pregnant with baby #2 (due March 20th 2014) and was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer on November 29th, 2013
Sam- My wonderful husband of 7 years is also a middle school teacher (8th grade ELA & Social Studies) and is in the process of getting his Doctorate in Educational Leadership (courses are on hold for now)
Ellie- Our beautiful, spunky, three year old pirate princess.
Baby S- Sam and I don't want to know baby's gender until March if we can help it, don't worry there will be a post introducing him or her when the time comes.
Phyllis- Meg's mom, she retired from banking on November 1st 2013 and is enjoying being grandma to Ellie. She is also the best recorder in all of our meetings with the Dr's
Frank- Meg's dad, a retired police officer who has been a stay at home Papa with Ellie 2-3 days a week for the past 3 years and is often our voice of reason.
Kathy- Sam's mom, a retired nurse (from Kaiser Fontana) who has been a stay at home Nana with Ellie 2-3 days a week for the past 3 years and is my bulldog, I don't have to be the meanie, that's what Kathy does. Plus it is a bonus when we walk into the hospital and everyone in the halls knows her!
Wayne- Sam's dad, a retired pharmacist (again from Kaiser Fontana) who can be silent but deadly, like Kathy he has loads of contacts at the hospital so anytime I have a new appointment he scoops out the info on the Dr. to make sure I have a good one. He also gets me names and numbers of people to consult (like the head pharmacist of oncology)
