Today was pleasant and easy. Claudia and I took Fisher to school, ran a couple quick errands and I was able to rest most of the day. Both kids napped and ate good dinners and went to bed. Kind of normal, wow. The kids are comfortable too. I can feel that they know that Diane and Claudia are part of me, and they feel a true mothering in our home, even when I'm resting or taking a time out. Knowing that my babes feel this love is my best medicine of all.
My sickie-feeling chemo symptoms seem to be lessoning, although my chest surgery incisions and internal expanders are a constant pain and nag- but that's ok, I'm only two weeks out from major surgery. I get pooped easily, but I have the freedom to rest as needed. Truly, I feel safe, and that's priceless.
Nick is having a much needed night out with two best friends Pete and Darren, and I'm about to settle in for the night. I know I promised a photo of my new cropped haircut, but we forgot to take one, oops. So, here's one of me with Fisher and Jenny-Jane helping the hairdresser. Fisher even got to make the first cut with the sharp scissors. Tomorrow I'll fluff myself up and get a photo of my new "do" which is actually pretty cute. I just wish I could keep it longer than about 10 more days- as what I've been told. I'm really, really not ready for that part!!
No appointments for tomorrow, another day to rest and recuperate. I once again have to say thank you to everyone for your cards, calls, texts, gifts, flowers and food. Is it possible to gain weight during chemo? I might just do that. The homemade food in my home is so filled with love and calories, it's perfect. I'm gonna go have a dish of frozen custard from my hometown and get ready for another good day with my sisters.
